You don't know what you don't know

Why take this course (or any course)? Knowledge Minimizes Risk

"I can almost guarantee that if you don't know Ontario residential tenancy law
you will become a victim of it." -
Chris Seepe

What is 'Landlording'

Landlording’ isn’t a verb but it ought to be. I define it as everything involved from finding an income-generating property (very difficult in today’s market), to managing its operation, protecting yourself against tenant abuse and government bias, setting up property legal and accounting structures, embracing the power of digital management, and ultimately extracting  value to finance the next property.



Who Can Benefit From This Course

This course is for would-be and first-time investors, realtors unfamiliar with commercial investment properties, property managers wanting to better understand the owner's perspective, and existing landlords and real estate investors who want to increase the value of their residential rental property and maximize their return on investment.




What I Achieved and Why You Can Too

I didn't have any special benefits, a silver spoon, financial gift, insider information, or any other 'head start' that gave me a preferential advantage over any other investor or realtor. Anyone with some ambition, a tolerance for low-to-medium risk, drive, perseverance, determination, common sense and patience can duplicate what I did. I left a 35-year career in I.T. when I realized I wouldn’t be able to retire to the life to which I would like to become accustomed. I took $230,000 of equity from my average suburban home and bought my first 11-unit apartment building sixteen months later. You might need to start with a smaller nest egg but the mechanics, processes and numbers are otherwise the same. Within seven years I owned one 25-plex, two 12-plexes, one 11-plex, one 9-plex and two 6-plexes (81 units), and recovered all of the initial deposit originally secured by my home. I re-financed my first property (purchased 5 years earlier) to provide me with enough down payment to purchase my next investment rental property. And I converted 'dead space' in two of the buildings to create two additional bachelor rental units.


What to Expect From this Course

No nonsense, no fluff -- just real world experiences, knowledge, skills and solid practical advice supported by home-grown hands-on analytical tools (see details further below) to empower you to make well-informed commercial investment property and ‘landlording’ decisions -- especially properly assessing market value, structuring opportunities so they can be financed, assessing upside potential of an investment property, and managing buyer/seller expectations during negotiations. This course is a firsthand account that focuses on residential rental investment properties (single family home to multi-unit) but applies significantly to retail properties and to a lesser extent to office, industrial, institutional and other types of investment properties.   


Your Time Commitment

If you're going to invest hundreds of thousands and potentially millions of your hard-earned dollars, then six Saturdays is not a lot of time to ensure that you minimize as many risks as possible.


 The course is separated into two parts. The first covers 'Finding and Analyzing an Investment Property.' The second covers 'Managing Your Property While Increasing Value'. You can register for only the first or only the second (and register for the other at a later date), or register for both, which will be taught back-to-back. See the registration section further below.

  • "I just wanted to extend my appreciation on both the content and your real-life delivery on this course. I have been in the Real Estate industry for over 20 years and as a Broker of Record for about 10 years. I always tell new and seasoned agents that you never stop learning in life, and this course is a perfect example. Two thumbs up and money well spent." -- Gianfranco Locantore, Broker of Record, Vaughan, ON (February 19, 2017)


  • "This is an excellent quantitative and qualitative look at residential multi-unit landlording in Ontario. Chris is the rare example of an agent with great analytical skills who has actually invested in properties and lived with the challenges of these businesses. His Property Purchase Analysis spreadsheet is very complete, and can also be used to study other asset classes like plazas, single family homes, offices, and industrial buildings. Chris has a nice relaxed presentation style and I enjoyed my time in class." -- Thomas Bollum, Commercial Broker, Toronto, ON (January 31, 2017).


  • "One single class was worth the price of admission. My expectations were exceeded by the end of the first class.  Before then, I didn’t even know, what I didn’t know!  Chris’s book “Landlording in Ontario” has become my bible for multi-family real estate investing.  Chris’s course and book provided the knowledge to help me make an informed decision and the confidence to proceed down the multi-family investing path.  Thank you Chris! " -- Paul Vella, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (July 07, 2017).


  • "As a Real Estate investor with over 20 properties I was not sure if I could learn anything from this course. However, I was so wrong. Right from the beginning this course was loaded with insightful information on landlording and what it actually means to be a landlord (cons vs pros). The course lays the foundation for making real estate investing a long term wealth-creation strategy and, no, it does not provide a magic formula for any get-rich-quick scheme. It was great to have a course done by a Canadian real estate investor like Chris who has hands-on experience and knows what he is talking about. Chris was funny, energetic and knowledgable, providing helpful insights on the [real estate] industry and landlording.  I participated in many courses and meet-ups before [taking Chris's course] but none of them ever went into such depth in analyzing numbers, markets, potential issues with tenants, and so on. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about their future [in becoming a residential landlord] and want to invest in real estate with knowledge (as opposed to just gambling by buying properties for appreciation). Even if you decide not to invest in real estate after what you have learnt, it would be the best investment of your money to avoid making a mistake and investing in a property that could lose money and the consequent terrible stress." -- Alex Pomeransky, Property Owner, Richmond Hill, ON (May 13, 2017)


  • "Chris Seepe's class should be prerequisite learning for anyone considering multiresidential real estate investment in Ontario. The classes were well-paced, well-taught and full of valuable information and knowledge. The handouts are some of the most analytical and thorough tools I've ever seen. They helped me tremendously in my purchase of an apartment building in Ontario. I recommend this course 100%! " -- Jing Wang, Property Owner, Richmond Hill, ON (April 14, 2018)


  • "I’m not exaggerating when I say you are an incredible breath of fresh air when it comes to property managers. You have a skill set in this sandbox that is almost unprecedented in my 10+ years investing. Any time you want  a referral, please feel free to pass along my name." -- Tyler Pearson, Property Owner, Markham, ON (July 21, 2016)

  • "This course is a real eye opener for a new investor on foresighted challenges that I would have never expected. Thank you for the energy put into answering every question and ensuring the student [that the answer] was understood.  Keep up the great work, Chris." -- John Altinian, Property Owner, Aurora, ON (April 22, 2018)


  • "If anyone would like to know the what, when, who,where,why and how to become a landlord and perform as a landlord,this course is a must, with complete guidelines for those seeking help. The contents are normally NOT found in the conventional documents or available in books but can only be learnt from this Guru of Landlording." -- Rashed Butt, Realtor, Mississauga, ON (June 12, 2016)


  • "Being fairly new in this industry, this intense course has taught me what to watch for in purchase agreements, creative ways to get financing, and safe guards to not over extend yourself. Getting the right tenants can make or break you.  Chris's lease and creative [tenant selection] ideas weed out bad prospects. I was also able to learn from fellow classmates and their experiences as well as networking.   I feel I am ready to go to the next level after taking this course." -- Greta Vandyk, Property Owner, Port Perr, ON (June 16, 2016)


  • "Knowing Chris before the course I knew this would be a good learning expeirence and went for it despite knowing that I will not be able to attend all classes. Not a disappointment, even if I do not get to catch up on missed Saturdays, I have gained many insights on being a better landlord myself.

1. The course is very comprehensive, with attention to every detail.

2. The spreadsheet for analysis and managing a property by itself makes the course worthwhile, but it is greatly enhanced by explanations and hands-on scenarios discussed in class

3. Getting to ask questions and listening to others' questions answered was also great

4. Learning different and much more practical approaches to common issues

5. Being in a like-minded environment and being given the chance to network


This is a much better course than what you can learn in any school or similar institution!" -- Calin Alexandrescu, Property Owner, King City, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "This is an excellent course for any landlords-to-be, commercial and residential real estate practitioners, and anyone with money to invest in real estate.  The topics discussed are in-depth, relevant, and covers all the 'what if' scenarios a landlord, property manager, or real estate agent may encounter when dealing with a tenant and an investment property. When it comes to sharing his personal experiences in his landlording career, Chris doesn't hold back. His anecdotes are memorable and smart, and could really save you money, and perhaps your skin too.  I thoroughly enjoyed the course: great content, experienced and candid instructor, enlightening group discussions, & spreadsheets!" -- William Cheng, Realtor, Markham, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "Through the 'Landlording' in Ontario Course, Chris teaches all aspects of the multi-unit residential real estate investment lifecycle, ranging from property analysis and acquisition to the management of the property.  Chris's teaching style of 'telling it like it is' without the sugar-coat would be appreciated by those who genuinely seek to learn.  Compiled through years of practical landlording experience, the unique lessons are delivered in language that is easy to understand by everyone.  Every question, simple or complex, is answered in detail.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced real estate investor, this course is highly recommended and a worthwhile investment." -- Emilio Fong, Investor, Toronto, ON (June 24, 2016)


  • "Great overview – as someone who came in to this with essentially no ... experience (but lots of questions), I found the course extremely helpful " -- Ronny Zhang, Property Owner Courtice, ON (August 08, 2016)


  • "If you are considering purchasing a multi-residential property in Ontario this course is a must. Chris takes you through all of the aspects of the business, from procuring and screening tenants to the financial aspects of the business. His background in real estate and practical experience, dealing with his own investment properties provides you with insight that you will not receive from any other source." -- Peter Hanebury, Property Owner, Pickering, ON (October 21, 2016)


  • "Chris Seepe is full of useful information. The attention to detail is impressive, and he delivers the information with a hint of humour, which is always refreshing and keeps the class fun and entertaining. It's well worth the investment." -- Joe Bianchi, Realtor, Peel, ON (October 22, 2016)


  • "Thank you, Chris, for this course and for offering me the opportunity to take it. In the past, I have taken several other property management courses. This course is by far the best " -- Nicholas Z, Realtor, Toronto, ON (October 23, 2016)


  • "Chris you did a fantastic job at opening my eyes to the rewards and challenges of Landlording in Ontario. The course was fun. Content delivered with energy and a great sense of humor...or lack thereof...LOL...I think all Landlords in this province should be taking your course. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge and your experience. It was an amazing 6 x Saturdays that I [will] not forget. Time well spent! Keep me posted on part 2 of Landlording course and your book release!" -- Jacqué Turnbull, Mortgage Broker & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (October 27, 2016).


  • "The Landlording course was an eye opener for me. Not only did I learn more about how to be a 'viable' landlord in this pro-tenant environment, but also how to evaluate and the RIGHT way to invest in multi-residential real estate ... just like an old wise man from the old ages said, "Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling". (Taken from the book, "The richest man in Babylon.") I implore anyone wanting to invest in commercial and multi-res RE to take this course before spending a dime. Chris is knowledgeable, shares real life experiences and has the portfolio to back it up." -- Lloyd Nyasvimbo, Property Owner, Ajax, ON (October 28, 2016).


  • "Chris is generous sharing his experience, processes and templates for investing and property management.  A truly worthwhile investment.  The knowledge you gain will repay your investment of time and money many times over." -- Helen Ehlers, Property Owner, Ajax, ON (October 28, 2016).


  • "Chris taught, and shared with us, his  knowledge, wisdom and experience in investing in multiresidental properties. Nobody in Ontario is teaching a step by step course like him. He walks the talk from start to finish. I highly recommend anybody interested in investing in real estate to take this course and benefit from him. What you will learn from this course is priceless. Thanks Chris for teaching this course. I wish you all the best." -- Konesh Arunasalam, Realtor, Brampton, ON (November 12, 2016).


  • "I appreciate everything you've taught me. After being in the multi residential business for more than twenty years. You've taught me to never stop learning. Thank you for sharing knowledge. It will definitely make me more successful." -- Steven Butera, Property Owner, Niagara Falls, ON (February 20, 2017).


  • "Thank you for everything you have taught me and thank you sharing your experience. As a real estate agent who started this business less then 2 years ago, you have equipped me with the right knowledge and tools to be an asset for my clients. Everything you shared with us was relevant and useful. I was a bit hesitant when I signed up for your course but it was the best decision I have made so far for my business and personal growth." -- Majid Lodhi, Realtor, Markham, ON (February 21, 2017).


  • "Chris, thanks so much for the courses ... the knowledge obtained will be invaluable and very useful ... I know you care to do the best for others and yourself in the Landlording business." -- Ian Gifford, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (February 21, 2017).


  • "Chris has managed to consolidate and share in six weeks a knowledge base about landlording that has taken him years to learn.  That knowledge has come about by his actual hands-on-experience combined with his technical knowledge and expertise.  The course has given us many tools that will prove to be invaluable for anyone looking at becoming a landlord or currently feeling the growing pains with a purchase they may have made.  The course takes you through all the key stages: preliminary pre-purchase analysis, analysis of expenses, gathering and storing key information and properly using the information to control the expenses and future income earning stream of an investment property. Chris, you delivered the information with real life experiences, and your wacky sense of humour added to the learning experience [and] made it a fun time for all of us.  I highly recommend the two courses to any newbie or existing landlord wanting to learn the necessities of properly managing and operating a multiplex building. ... I know I speak for many others in our class: we wholeheartedly thank you for your generosity in sharing your wealth of knowledge.  Job well done ... not to mention ... your Landlording book is excellent.  Thank you for the great experience." -- Irene Kay, Realtor & Property Owner, Oshawa, ON (May 25, 2017). 


  • "The classes are very educational & informative. Your sharing of real landlording experiences has made this course invaluable and memorable. Analysis of multiunits in the current and past markets by running them through [your] property analysis spreadsheet plus the interactive nature of the class made the training very unique. What really stood out for me was your easy-to-approach personality coupled with your willingness to be open and uninhibited in sharing your systems, expense statements, balance sheets, [and] vendors. Learning from your firsthand experiences in sourcing, qualifying, negotiating and acquiring multiunits along with your penchant for details and thorough due diligence [was] the prized take-away for me. I certainly find myself better now than I was before taking the class. Thank you for the wonderful training ..." -- Srini Rao, Realtor & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 09, 2017). 


  • "Chris I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for having the opportunity to take your landlording course. I found the course very detailed with all the information you need to properly be an effective landlord. I really loved the fact that you provided us a detailed summary of each class, this allowed me to focus on your content as apposed to trying to take notes. As a realtor, I feel very confident to apply your information personally and to help my clients with any of their investment opportunities and tenant dealings. Overall I was really dialed in for every class and really learned a great deal. I look forward to reading your book which will give me much more details then the 38 hours of class time. Chris I would definitely recommned anybody considering to be a landlord to take your course. " -- Marco Cecatini, Realtor & Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 28, 2017).


  • "Thank you for putting so much into your course. All business considerations aside, you are truly generous with your information and experience - the content depth illustrates this perfectly. Already I am applying some of the points you raised and look forward to implementing many more. The model you present in your course is a really good approach.  For beginners, the learning curve is steep.  But challenging and fun. I certainly will advise anyone who could benefit from the program to attend. " -- Gordon Campbell, Property Owner, Oakville, ON (December 09, 2017). 


  • "Thank you very much for [the] very interesting and useful course. It provided a lot of information [that] I didn’t’ realise I was missing. I appreciate the detail and practical real life examples. Thank you for being an inspiration. " -- Alexandra Cahill, Realtor, Toronto, ON (December 17, 2017).


  • "I enjoyed these classes with likeminded people; great networking and new skills are now under my belt. Highly recommended . " -- Monique Marleau, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (December 14, 2017).


  • "Thank you very much for conducting this course. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it and I believe this course is truly worth a lot more than what I paid for it. I'm not sure if I would have figured out so much all on my own. So thank you for making [landlording] seem doable and [for] sharing your experiences. I quite liked how you structured different sets of information for every class. I believe everyone who wishes to buy multi-family apartment buildings and run [them] should certainly take your class. ​I highly recommend this program to anyone who is unsure if they should get into this type of an investment and also anyone who has multiple years of experience running such multi-family buildings. I'm sure they will learn things that they had no idea about. The most value-add I felt [I received] was to understand the type of buildings to go after, analyzing the financials, questions to assess a property, Chris' financial model (next to none in the industry), access to all the trades people you need for your business, understanding how to bring in efficiencies when a building is purchased, staying organized, and running a successful business to name a few. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions anyone may have about this course. I can be reached at 647-839-0381. Good luck!!" -- Priya Ramanathan, Realtor, Mississauga, ON (February 18, 2018). 


  • "Having read Chris Seepe''s book and participated in his course, I developed more confidence with analyzing properties. He explains the research and skill set needed in buying multi-residential properties. You will learn what to look for in hidden value and potential landmines. His information will improve your decision-making abilities in your pursuit of income-producing properties. I highly recommend both his book and course for anyone who wants to learn more about investing in real estate and landlording in Ontario. It will provide you with stronger fundamentals in this business, whether you are already a professional or just starting out." -- Patrick O'Connor, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (February 28, 2018).


  • Your article about ROI was the best I have ever read. You got it! Many investors fail to see the entire picture. As an investor/private lender/builder, I look at all aspects of the property. I especially look at the area. If it is on the outskirts of a build-up area. Sometimes you have to take a lower rent until the area builds up and the population increases. Anyway, well done." -- Fred Rankel, Real Estate Investor, Toronto, ON (March 09, 2018).


  • "These two courses far exceeded my already high expectations. Chris provided a wealth of practical resources, information and anecdotes which combined to produce a fascinating overview of landlording and residential commercial real estate issues. For someone who is easily bored, I was never at any time less than fully present throughout every day of class. Chris is a good presenter, sometimes humourous, with a good command of the classroom, and always well informed. It will take quite a while to work through all the information and resources he provided, which means his course will have a lasting impact on my landlording aspirations for a very long time to come. " -- Devorah Garland, Aspiring Real Estate Investor, Toronto, ON (April 27, 2018).


  • "I recently attended Chris Seepe’s landlord course and I was thoroughly educated as well as entertained. Chris has a wealth of knowledge and he enthusiastically shared it with everyone attending. I can honestly say without a doubt that it was well worth my time and money. I currently do not own an investment property but now I feel much more confident and plan to purchase my first in the next year." -- Ernie Guidoccio, Realtor, Toronto, ON (May 10, 2018).


  • "Not only was the course worthwhile, it was an absolute must for anyone who is going to even think of being a landlord in Ontario. Chris's information is invaluable ... If you want to save valuable money take this course and learn what you're doing before you lose everything." -- Jay Lough-Hayes, Property Manager, Peterborough, ON (November, 2018).


  • "I just wanted to send you a quick "thank you" for the first useful ... article in REM [Real Estate Magazine] to literally nip the "Cannabis Legalization Issue" in the bud! There have been other articles that have skirted the issue, but you've been the first to combine it's legalization with the LTB and renters ... I appreciate the time you took to share your opinion in REM.  Your article truly is a fantastic one." -- Craig Watson, Property Owner, Burlington, ON (September 10, 2018). 


  • "I have attended this course twice in order to understand and reinforce the concepts I knew already. This course prepared for the unforeseen and  unearthed ideas I thought I knew but did not know. The Landlording Course prepares you well as the budding owners of multi-residential properties and clarifies many concepts [even] if you are already in the business. [The course] engages you well into [the rental property business]. It's not passive income." -- Rashed M Butt, Real Estate Broker, Toronto, ON (March 10, 2019). 


  • "I just finished [the] 6 Saturdays' course - Landlording in Ontario. It was very detailed, knowledgeable, first hand personal experience from Chris. It should cost at least double what we paid. I think Chris wants this course to be available to everybody. In class it was a warm family atmosphere. I really enjoyed taking his classes. Thank you very much Chris." -- Peter Moroz, Realtor, Contractor & Investor, Gravenhurst & Toronto, ON (February 24, 2019).


  • "Thank-you for the countless hours of putting pen to paper and jumping through the hoops you have [done] on behalf of all of us....  the book, the course, the association and your work in educating landlords, tenants and politicians. I'm certain the hours to help others may never lead to grandeur wealth on your part... but you ARE leaving a legacy. I appreciate that the course is affordable because otherwise I would not be able to take it and learn all this invaluable information to empower myself to protect me, my investment, my family and my own legacy. My mind was blown wide open in each class as I discovered new things. It is scary the amount of info that I didn't even know .... that I did not know! And I cannot claim ignorance as a defence in being a landlord .... so I am forever grateful to use the information gained in this course to be proactive." -- Nicole Dunn, Property Owner, Burlington, ON (March 02, 2019). 


  • "What Chris ... does not advertise is that his 36 hour course effectively provides 48 hours of learning time. Chris arrives an hour prior to each class and stays throughout his lunch hour to answer any burning questions a multi-residential learner may have. He gives two extra hours of his personal time to each course day." -- Jack Krubnik, Property Owner, Durham, ON (March 13, 2019).


  • "I just finished Chris’s spring 2019 course. As an experienced landlord I found [the course] very informative and full of practical tips. You never know it all. Chris was a very good instructor, and kept things interesting. I have been interested in multifamily rentals but was not sure where I should start. This course has given me years of tips and advice, and an excellent analysis worksheet, as well as valuable knowledge going forward on what I should look for when shopping for a multifamily unit in the near future. One of the best courses I have taken and money well spent." -- David H, Property Owner, Durham, ON (March 15, 2019).


  • "Even though I was hesitant at the beginning I’m so glad I took Chris Seepe’s six week course! This course proved to be a great learning opportunity, full of very useful and practical information. Chris made the classes fun, [and I] always left the class looking forward to the next one. I highly recommend this course. It is a MUST for anyone thinking to invest in Real estate!!!" -- Mireille Bouzaid, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (March 18, 2019).


  • "Whether you are an investor of commercial real estate or a residential landlord in the province of Ontario, THE 6 week Landlording course conducted by Chris is definitely worth both your time and money! Chris dives into the reality of being a landlord and highlights real life examples from his tenure of experiences. I will definitely remember many noteworthy elements from the wit and humour he uses to convey his messaging to keep his audience well informed.  If in doubt you can always purchase and refer to his ‘trusty’ notes and book on Landlording.  Many thanks Chris!" -- Nicolette D, Property Owner, Toronto, ON (April 09, 2019).


  • "I learned about this course via a good friend of mine from BJJ class, who has 20+ properties. I am very skeptical of courses and education in general, but after a quick call with Chris, I instantly knew Chris is very passionate about teaching and he really knows his stuff since I am already a RE investor with a couple of properties. During the course, I never knew I had the ability to pay this much attention in a class!!! Let me give you some context of how interesting and useful the course was: I am a millennial and normally I have to touch my phone every few minutes, but the class was so interesting and jam packed with useful info that I didn’t touch my phone the whole day!!! In addition, the various documents provided (especially the [standard rental agreement] ) is worth the cost of the whole course already. I truly enjoyed the course and learned a lot, thank you Chris for sharing your knowledge and experiences." -- Kalvin, RE Investor, North York, ON (April 19, 2019).


  • "What a blast this course was to take. Every topic that was covered was relevant, interesting, and fundamental to real estate investing. Chris is an engaging and funny teacher, and to call him an expert in this field is an understatement. Whether you're a real estate investor or not, everyone has something to take out of this course. If you're on the fence on whether or not to invest in real estate, definitely take this course and it will give you the confidence and knowledge to handle common day to day issues. I never enjoyed learning in a formal setting but I'm going to miss going to Chris's classes. " -- Andrew Chan, Real Estate Investor, North York, ON (April 19, 2019).


  • "I never knew what I wanted to do after retirement, having worked in the insurance industry most of my life. Investing in a residential income investment property had crossed my mind but I was not convinced.  I decided to register for Chris's 36 hour landlording course. I had no idea what to to expect. The first day of class was an eye-opener,  I learned a  lot in just the first day. I never realized residential rental property owners have to pay such close attention to the different types of laws, guidelines and processes. Chris has a unique style in teaching. He's brilliant, engaging, and humorous. I especially appreciated the team interaction and classmate discussions about the different types of  problems they are experiencing with tenants, the law, the LTB etc. Chris answered each question and showed examples on how he handled different types of situations. I truly appreciate Chris sharing his experiences and knowledge. He's definitely a no 'fluff' kind of guy. I'd recommend this course to anyone thinking about or already involved in residential rental properties of every size and description." -- Ruby S, Real Estate Investor, Vaughan, ON (May 09, 2019).


  • "I want to send a note to thank you for offering an incredible 'Wow!' experience. Since attending your course I have saved 1,000's of dollars on dealing with bad tenants. My only regret is that I didn't find out about this course sooner! It would of saved me possibly tens of thousands! Your view on how to be a landlord, and your experiences are priceless.  Your course is a 'must attend!' Way undervalued!! Oh, and a lot of fun!!! I recommend it to anyone interested in resindetial rental property investing " -- Jim Mulholland, Landlord, Stouffville, ON (June 09, 2019).
