DelSuites Appears at CERC 2022 in St. John

August 30, 2022

September’s when all kinds of people head back to class—and this year, the DelSuites team is doing the same.

From September 11-13, 2022, we’ll be on the road to St. John, Newfoundland to attend CERC 2022: Canada’s premier conference for the employee relocation industry.

What is CERC?

Entering its 40th year, the Canadian Employee Relocation Council helps industries and organizations expertly navigate the employee relocation field. Offering research, information, education, and government advocacy, CERC helps employers meet the needs of today’s increasingly mobile workforce.

CERC has over 500 member organizations internationally: including top Canadian banks, energy companies, IT corporations, global management companies, and more. It serves its membership by helping companies effectively meet the needs of relocated employees and their families: addressing the network of issues that impact workforce mobility domestically and internationally.

In Canada, employee relocation is a $2.5 billion industry, directly employing 828,000 people across the country. DelSuites is proud to be an integral part of it, offering stable, comfortable employee relocation housing throughout Toronto and the GTA. As a 20-year veteran of the employee relocation industry, we know there’s always more to learn and ways to adapt to our changing world more intelligently.

CERC’s professional development seminars, research initiatives, and networking opportunities are a vital piece of our puzzle. They help the employee relocation industry run more smoothly—and get the right talent to the right place, trouble-free.

CERC 2022 in St. John

This year’s CERC conference in St. John, Newfoundland is focused on post-pandemic talent mobility strategies—and building a creative, transformational road map for how and where we work in the years to come.

This year’s CERC will offer industry white papers, a full conference program on the future and challenges of global mobility, and a trade show floor to network and collaborate on best practices. Roundtable events offer an opportunity to meet delegates from major Canadian employers from every sector—video game development to energy, banking, and government.

At DelSuites, we’re looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate, consult, and contribute our best to the challenge of employee relocation. Bringing new talent onto your team is a multifaceted challenge—one that combines culture, immigration systems, environmental sustainability, and international regulations—and we’re excited to build our knowledge to serve our guests better.

DelSuites: always improving our employee relocation solutions

Join us at this year’s CERC conference to meet our team and discover how DelSuites can be part of your staffing solutions. We’ll be there to explore, learn, connect, and collaborate—and bring the future of employee relocation and international work forward in Toronto.

Hullmark Centre Connects You to Toronto—Elegantly

August 23, 2022
Hullmark Centre lobby

There are the pictures, the video tour—and then there’s real life at Toronto’s Hullmark Centre. What’s it like to live day to day in a building—whether it’s for a month or six months? It’s a combination of neighbourhood flavour, personal design, and how your new home connects to the wider city.

This week, we’ll take a closer look at Hullmark Centre: 35 stories of glittering sophistication in Toronto’s Yonge & Sheppard neighbourhood.

An uptown neighbourhood that has it all

Hullmark Centre is the centrepiece of Toronto’s vibrant uptown, Yonge & Sheppard: a neighbourhood that combines business savvy, family fun, laid back city living, and the diversity Toronto is famous for into one place.

Without losing its community feel, Yonge & Sheppard packs a bustling corporate district into the sky. The neighbourhood is home to major corporations like Nestlé and Bank of Montreal, legal offices, and a growing medical technology hub.

Government and diplomatic offices are also quartered in the neighbourhood: Service Canada, ServiceOntario, and Canada’s federal immigration agency have major offices in the area. It’s home to multiple diplomatic offices, including the consulates of South Africa, Panama, Argentina, Ghana, Kazakhstan, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Despite its business credentials, Hullmark’s at the centre of one of Toronto’s most family-oriented neighbourhoods. Hullmark is surrounded by both public and private schools—including two Montessori locations and one of Toronto’s most famous arts schools, Claude Watson School for the Arts. It’s ringed by parkland and playgrounds, including a major golf course. The neighbourhood is also a hub for religious communities, with churches from multiple denominations, a mosque, and several synagogues in the area.

There’s also no lack of culture and fun. With a major movie theatre a few blocks north, a slew of karaoke bars and Asian cafés, and escape rooms, it’s easy to plan a quick night out. Hullmark is also a few short blocks south of arts and concert venue Meridian Hall and Mel Lastman Square, a 20,000 square foot public square complete with a winter skating rink, outdoor concert space, a regular farmers’ market, gardens.

The square also hosts one of Toronto’s biggest library branches—complete with a hands-on digital innovation space and fabrication lab—and programming for everyone from young children to adults new to Canada.

An elegant uptown lifestyle

Behind Hullmark’s doors is where the vibrant city life of Toronto’s uptown meets soothing elegance.

From its warm, bright lobby to the marble kitchen counters, DelSuites’s Hullmark suites are built for your urban lifestyle. Each is equipped with comfortable, modern furniture: warm wood, soothing greens, and ultra-chic greys. You’re welcomed into a space that’s bright, natural, and ready to fill with your own unique personality.

When you want to sweat, socialize, or just relax, there’s also the chance to use Hullmark’s peerless amenities. Hullmark boasts a spacious, fully equipped fitness centre with treadmills, cycling, yoga facilities, and full weights available. For swimmers, an outdoor pool lets you get your laps in, and there’s an indoor hot tub and sauna to relax.

For friends and family, the indoor party room includes a wet bar and fireplace—perfect for dinner parties, cocktail receptions, or holiday meals. A theatre-style media room lets you host your own mini-cinema or invite friends to watch the big game. And if you’re working remotely, Hullmark’s sleekly professional conference room means you can meet clients and colleagues with flair.

The city at your feet

One of Hullmark’s best features is how it connects to everything you need for Toronto living.

Hullmark living makes groceries and necessities easy, with a Whole Foods Market, Rexall Drugstore, and an LCBO just downstairs in the building. Local upscale grocer Longo’s Fine Foods and Korean grocery H-Mart’s M2M concept are across the street.

But beyond the neighbourhood, Hullmark gives you direct indoor access to Yonge/Sheppard subway station and two transit lines. On hot or wintry days, you can unlock the whole city—and the greater Toronto region—without stepping outdoors.

For those who’d rather take the car, Hullmark is located just blocks from Highway 401, making your adventures through the Toronto area and Southern Ontario region easy. With five 24-hour charging stations in the neighbourhood, it’s an ideal area for electric, hybrid, and Tesla drivers.

Experience Hullmark Centre for yourself with DelSuites

There’s a little bit in the Hullmark Centre lifestyle for everyone: families, professionals, retirees, community-lovers, and more.

If you’d like to try out Hullmark living—or make it a fit for your energetic city life—call us at 647-370-3504 or email With fully furnished short-term rentals at Hullmark Centre and throughout the GTA, DelSuites can give you a taste of Toronto hassle-free.

DelSuites: Your Film Industry Housing Source in Toronto

August 16, 2022

Toronto’s film industry is booming—and so is demand for film industry housing.

The city’s been ranked #2 on MovieMaker‘s list of Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker in 2022. And that means it’s one of the busiest film cities in North America: home to streaming hits, Big Five feature films, network shows, and iconic franchises like Star Trek.

With almost 50 productions operating through the city this summer—on track to break last year’s record of $2.5 billion of production in 2022—competition can be high for comfortable, full-service temporary housing for your cast and crew.

Here’s how DelSuites fully furnished condominium rentals can be not just your housing provider, but your film industry housing partner from scouting to post-production.

Film industry housing that’s production-ready

The best place to stay is the one that’s thought of everything. At DelSuites, all you have to do is open the door. Our fully-appointed suites—designed for the needs of busy business travelers—are the luxurious, comfortable surroundings your cast and crew expect.

DelSuites furnished condominium rentals are a private, homelike atmosphere with plenty of space, air, and light. Our roomy suites are available in every size, from studios to three-bedrooms, some with balconies that look out over the city lights. Each one is furnished with modern, top-of-the-line furniture that never goes out of style.

Our full virtual tours and instant online booking let you and your talent know exactly what to expect from their temporary Toronto home—and help us ensure your suite is perfect for you.

We provide everything you need to settle in instantly: towels and linens service, regular bi-weekly housekeeping, and secured underground parking spaces. Our premium cable packages, high-speed Wifi, and North American long-distance calling are fully included in your rental rates.


With our pre-arrival grocery delivery service, your talent can show up to their favourite food in the fridge or keep to special diets. Our building amenities—yoga rooms, swimming pools, and workout spaces—make it easy to keep up any fitness routine.

And for talent travelling with pets or service animals, our pet-friendly policies ensure everything you need is already there.

It’s a space built to support your production needs—all in the laid-back atmosphere of a Toronto neighbourhood.

A housing provider that understands shooting schedules

Shooting schedules mean long hours—and DelSuites fully furnished rentals are ideal for making your housing fit your day.

Our fully-stocked kitchens let you eat, cook, or have coffee ready no matter what time it is. Full ensuite laundry facilities mean there’s no need to wait for hotel laundry and dry-cleaning hours. And

Our booking and Guest Services team have extensive film industry experience, with a track record of partnering with major film, stage, and TV productions. We understand the evolving needs of production coordinators, cast, and crew, and we’re on call to help you meet them, with 24/7 availability by phone or email.

We also offer matchless flexibility to extend or shorten your departure date if your schedule changes. Whether you wrap early or shoot late, we can work with you to make sure there’s no uncertainty about where you sleep at night.

A home for every stage of production

Whether you’re flying in writers or producers for a short set visit, relocating actors to Toronto for months, or bringing in key production members for a TIFF premiere, we can give them the same welcome on the same clear, friendly business terms—and reduce the work and static of liaising with multiple private landlords or hotels.

Make DelSuites your Toronto film industry housing partner

Let our film industry experience and local housing know-how be part of your Toronto team.

Contact our booking specialists by email at or live chat to answer any questions about how DelSuites furnished short-term rentals can make your production housing an easy, comfortable, and smooth experience.

Moving to Toronto? Short-term rentals can help.

August 9, 2022

All you have to do is count cranes in the sky to know Toronto is booming. As the city grows taller, we’re adding more of what gives Toronto its soul: interesting, diverse people from around the world.

Starting out in a new country is always a big job—and what to expect is different in every city. If you’re thinking about moving to Toronto—and taking your first steps into Canada—DelSuites can help you find your first Canadian home.

Moving to Toronto — trouble-free                     

Toronto’s a great place to live for lots of reasons: diverse and friendly people, major international employers, parks, excellent schools, major sports teams, and knowing you’ll never run out of fun ways to spend your weekend. We’re one of the most livable cities in the world, Bloomberg’s best city in the world for career women, and one of the most LGBTQIA+ friendly cities on the planet.

The downside? Rents are rising fast, and some of the city’s bargain apartments are anything but comfortable. Supply chain problems mean buying furniture isn’t easy, with even furniture giant IKEA seeing stock problems. As the Toronto real estate market settles down—and you settle in—it’s worth taking your time to find the right home.

Starting your time in Toronto with a short-term furnished apartment can be a worthwhile stopgap. It’s a way to focus on what matters in your life without the stress of finding housing fast—and still live comfortably in the meantime.

Everything you need to feel secure about your move

Moving to a new country means everything is new: the brands you see in the grocery store, the currency, and neighbourhood, and frequently, the language. The more stability you can build into your life, the more time you’ll have to tackle those new adventures. And leaving the airport for a short-term, fully-furnished rental apartment is a great way to stabilize your basic daily living.

Our comfortable, professionally-cleaned condo suites come fully equipped with everything you’ll need on your first day in Toronto: beautiful modern furniture, soft sheets and pillowcases, towels, toiletries, and more. If you’re shipping your personal belongings after arriving, we’ll help you live in a comfortable home until they’re here to meet you.

Our kitchens are already stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and all the little things you need to cook your favourite breakfast. Our recommended grocery delivery services can have a first order at your door when you arrive, so you can start your first night in Toronto with a full fridge and no worries. And if you eat vegetarian, halal, kosher, or allergy-friendly meals, you’ll know you have the right food in the fridge without having to figure out a new city’s restaurants.

We equip every unit with stable high-speed wireless Internet, so you won’t spend a minute disconnected. Whether you’re still working your current job remotely or starting a new one, you’ll have a comfortable space to work and the bandwidth to do it.

If something in your unit breaks or is confusing, you don’t have to navigate whose responsibility it is or find a contractor for repairs. Our guest services line will make sure a repair is done swiftly and well, with all COVID safety requirements met.

And all of our buildings have space for fitness and fun. You can enjoy beautifully maintained exercise rooms, pools, and outdoor gardens to keep up your health routine, relax, and soak up the sun. In the evenings, our full cable TV packages let you check out your favourite shows.

All of this is included in your rental rate, so you can start your move knowing exactly what your budget is—and stick with it. Our fully online booking process includes virtual tours, so you can see every corner of your suite before booking it and get a complete quote online.

And when you find the apartment that’s right for you long-term? Our flexible booking policies mean you won’t have to give months’ worth of notice. Our Guest Services team will help you set a departure date that gets you into your new home on time: comfortable, well-rested, and ready to take on the world.

Let us welcome you to Toronto

Whether you’re here for a university degree, a few years, or for life, call us at 647-370-3504 or email to find out how we can make moving to Toronto simple and stress-free.

Your job’s gone fully remote and you’ve decided to see the world—starting with a few months in Toronto.

Now that so many of us are free to leave the office, thousands are taking to the road to try out the digital nomad life. But working while you explore all the places and lifestyles you’ve always dreamed of needs a few steady building blocks: good WiFi, a bit of privacy, and a comfortable home base to start from.

Whether you’re coming from down the highway or across the world, here’s why DelSuites is your perfect Toronto home base for digital nomad life.

A Toronto home for digital nomads

Travelling for a while means travelling light—and a DelSuites fully furnished rental apartment has everything you need to step into a Toronto lifestyle.

Our units are located in modern, high-end condo buildings across the city, complete with concierge service, underground parking, and the amenities you need to keep your lifestyle moving. All our guests can access every building amenity: from the swimming pool where you can get in morning laps to party rooms and garden decks so you can host new friends.

We fill each unit with comfortable, stylish furniture, appliances, and décor. You’ll never have unwelcome surprises in a DelSuites unit—and you’ll always look professional, no matter where you set up your desk. And once you’ve put in your workday, our soft beds, cozy couches, and high-end televisions can help you relax.

Our rates include high-quality, reliable WiFi that’ll handle your work connectivity needs without a flicker. Our inclusive long-distance calling packages—covering both Canada and the United States—will let you keep up with work and family without having to buy expensive roaming plans. And our full cable TV packages—and complete neighbourhood guides—mean it’s just as easy to plan nights out and nights in.

Explore Toronto with a neighbourhood’s-eye view

Travel’s all about getting the real flavour of a new place—and DelSuites puts you in the real Toronto. Or any of Toronto’s vast, exciting neighbourhoods you’d like.

If you’re looking for fast-paced professional networking, Qwest and The Livmore set you up near Toronto’s tech, arts, and social innovation hubs. If you’d rather be close to the city’s restaurants and nightlife, 300 Front Street West and Republic get you close to two different fine dining neighbourhoods. For nature-lovers looking for regular hikes, living active, and a more laid-back, intimate urban vibe, Old Mill puts you in the city—and right at the door of High Park.

All our locations around the city are fully embedded in living, vibrant neighbourhoods: bustling residential buildings that ease you into Toronto’s daily life. Our digital neighbourhood guides can help you find your local coffee shop, parks, necessary services like pharmacies and groceries, and highlight what’s near you.

While you’re finding your feet, our recommended grocery delivery services can get your kitchen set up—or help you find that one ingredient you need for a perfect meal.

And if you’d rather keep the office at the office, our partnership with Regus Office Space Rentals lets you step into a fully working office space—just as easily as your fully working temporary home. Regus’s 10% discount for DelSuites guests can help you keep your work-life balance affordable.

Travel with everyone you love

Digital nomad living isn’t just for twentysomethings with time to kill. With schools going virtual, there’s lots to discover for the whole family—and you still have a chance to travel and explore without leaving your pets behind.

DelSuites fully furnished apartments are flexible enough to fit your lifestyle. Our two- and three-bedroom suites are big enough to travel with friends or family without getting in each other’s way. There’s enough privacy to set up separate offices—inside, or on our sunny balconies—during the day, or co-work when you like.

If you want to take the kids along, our family-friendly packages will have cribs, highchairs, playpens, and change tables ready and waiting in your unit—or just a complimentary Kids’ Care play package to make sure they have some fun. And your full access to our building amenities means it’s easy to have pool parties or play dates whenever you like.

If you’re hesitating about trying digital nomad life because of a furry friend: DelSuites has you covered. Our pet-friendly units provide a comfortable home for you and your pet—and service animals are welcome everywhere.

A springboard for your digital nomad lifestyle

Digital nomad living doesn’t have to mean roughing it—and in Toronto, it can take any shape you’d like. Whether you’re setting up in the city for a month or six, call us at 647-370-3504 or email to find out how we can help build a comfortable, hyperlocal home base for your Toronto adventure.
