The Bulletin Board
Residents and owners are invited to send (via Web Manager) items for the bulletin board such as things to buy, sell or rent; services to offer; announcements or posters of events of interest in the building or in the neighbourhood,etc. This bulletin board will serve a similar function to the cork bulletin board in the laundry room.
Listings of any services or service providers here are initiated by individual owners or tenants, and in no way does the Condominium Corporation (YCC75) or the Board of Directors suggest, recommend, promote, guarantee, underwrite or otherwise endorse any of the services or service providers. Individuals are urged to do their own research and due diligence.
Owners and tenants, however, are encouraged to share the names and contact information of service providers so others might use them, too.

Finding a worker
Some trades and professions have qualifying credentials available, such as licensing, and some are bonded or insured. It could be very important to consider credentials for more substantial, complex jobs, and owners should proceed cautiously and with research.
Here is a website which compiles many types of household workers and ratings and evaluations of them by their customers.
Here are the category listings for Homestars.
