Liv.rent continues its support of the Canadian women’s indoor program

September 08, 2020: Volleyball Canada and Liv.rent continue to work together to assist members of the Canadian Women’s Indoor Team navigate the Vancouver rental market.

Liv.rent provides an efficient, expedited rental process for the athletes, taking the stress out of finding a home in Vancouver while the players are training with Team Canada in Richmond, BC. During the 2019 international summer season, six Senior National Team athletes lived at the W1 complex, which is managed by liv.rent. The team at liv.rent work hard to accommodate the needs of the athletes, simplifying the rental process while matching them with leases that suit the unique needs of our athletes. They also facilitate an end-to-end, contact-free rental process, from live chat to a digital rental agreement – so vital in these times of social distancing and quarantine.

"Liv.rent is proud to support the Canadian Women's Volleyball team for another year during their stay at the liv.rent-exclusive W1 Rental Building in Vancouver, BC," said Matisse Yiu, Digital Marketing Specialist. "With the ongoing pandemic, we understand the importance of supporting Canadian athletes, especially the young, bright individuals of our future. We are ecstatic that our team was able to provide an efficient, streamlined digital process that helped the athletes secure their home with our all-in-one rental platform."

This fall, Volleyball Canada will be hosting two programs at the Women’s National Training Centre in Richmond – the National Excellence Program (NEP) and a full-time training centre for Senior and NextGen athletes. A number of athletes in the Women's National Team program will be living at W1 at a discounted rate while they are training full time at the Richmond Oval. Looking ahead to 2021 and the international summer season, the plan is to collaborate with liv.rent to coordinate housing for our Senior National Team athletes as they return to Vancouver for training.

"We are pleased to continue to have liv.rent team up with our athletes in the Vancouver area," said Robin Guy, Volleyball Canada’s Director of Partnerships and Governance. "Any assistance the players receive is appreciated and contributes to the quality of their experience at the training centre."

Made up of a team of renters and landlords, liv.rent was launched in 2018 with the goal of alleviating headaches associated with finding a home or renting out a property. Some of their key features include verified listings and landlords to provide renters a safe and secure rental experience, as well as digital applications and contracts that helps expedite the overall renting process – all within the platform.
