Bankers Court is a non-smoking complex. Smoking is therefore not permitted in the washrooms, stairwells, common corridors, lobbies and underground parkade, or within tenant premises.
In keeping with our commitment to the Environment and in repose to many tenant requests, we have developed a new “Smoke Free” program for all of our Canadian Properties. This program not only reminds tenants that the Building itself is smoke free, but ask tenants refrain from smoking within 9 metres (30 feet) of all building entrances.
This expanded “Smoke Free” area is a decision Brookfield has made to enhance the experience both tenant and visitors have when they enter our Buildings. To assist us in this initiative, we will be posting signage at all entrances to the Building and we hope tenants will post signage within their space as well.
Vapor/Electronic cigarettes are not approved by Health Canada nor supported by the Canadian Lung Association as a method to quit smoking. Health Canada does not know the long-term health impact on individuals using these products and how they may impact people around the users of these products. As a result, we are treating them the same way as traditional cigarettes and prohibiting them from use in the property. In keeping with our No Smoking Policy, the “Smoke Free” initiative will also apply to vapor/electronic cigarette use.
