What should I do when my landlord will not respond to me?

I'm trying to get out of my lease 13 days early. I have sent my landlord's company 2 letters, made 16 phone calls, left 11 messages, and no one has responded. What do I do? What can I assume?

I live in Toronto in a building owned by a large company. I have found a new apartment that is closer to my work. I would like to move into my new apartment by April 1st.
I gave my notice on February 13th, which is 13 days shy of the required 60 days notice. I have been a good tenant who never puts up a fuss and is courteous and kind to other residents. I asked that they please forgive the late notice and let me leave on good terms with their company.
I have spoken with one person who was unable to provide me with any direct answers. The person legally in charge of granting my request has not returned any of my phone calls or replied to any of my letters.
The second letter I sent indicated that I concluded their silence meant they were in agreement with my request and thanked them for the time at my current address.
If I have STILL heard nothing, what should I do? Do I keep calling them or just move out? FWIW, the building is in some disrepair and the heat is unbearable!
Any advice would be appreciated.
