What is this engagement about?
Premier John Horgan has appointed a Rental Housing Task Force that will advise on how to improve security and fairness for renters and rental housing providers throughout the province.
The Rental Housing Task Force wants to better understand what further changes may be needed to modernize B.C.’s tenancy laws. Their work includes:
- Talking to the public, rental housing providers, renters and stakeholders on their views and experiences with current tenancy laws and processes;
- Identifying options to improve security and fairness for both renters and rental housing providers, while addressing the challenges of affordability;
- A review of the existing laws and how they apply to different housing situations; and
- A review of innovative approaches in other jurisdictions.
The Rental Housing Task Force invited you to share your ideas on how to improve rental housing laws and policies for renters and rental housing providers to make it more fair and secure.
There were several ways to participate in the public engagement until July 6 at 4pm:
- Attend one of the 11 community meetings
- Read comments on the online discussion
- Read an organizational submission
- Email comments to the Rental housing Task Force
How can my contribution make a difference?
The task force will report on the findings and make recommendations to Premier Horgan and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Selina Robinson in fall 2018.
