2 Occupied rent is a component of rental revenue and represents same properties only.  It is calculated for occupied suites as of the first day of each month as the average rental revenue, adjusted for other rental revenue items such as fees, specific recoveries, and revenue from commercial tenants. March 2024 figure TBA with Q1 Results.

Sam Kolias, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Boardwalk REIT commented:

"As we enter our higher volume spring leasing season, we are well-positioned for continued strong apartment rental fundamentals in our largest markets. Occupancy at our communities remains high, while our approach to self-moderation of rental adjustments in our non price-controlled markets increases our Resident retention while lowering our turnover costs and extending our runway for future growth. Alberta remains a destination of choice for existing and new Canadians seeking an affordable place to call home, economic opportunities, and the favorable lifestyle the province has to offer. We are encouraged by the results we have seen to-date in 2024 and are confident that our Net Operating Income and Funds from Operations per unit growth trajectory will provide us with additional funds to re-invest in our communities while continuing our track record of strong performance for our Unitholders."
