If you provide rental housing – from a secondary suite to a laneway home to a duplex, a fourplex or an entire apartment building, the province wants to hear from you.
The BC Premier has appointed a Rental Housing Task Force which is consulting with both landlords and tenants on how to improve security and fairness for rental housing providers and renters.
The task force is led by Vancouver-West End MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert, who is the Premier’s Advisor on Residential Tenancy.
The Rental Housing Task Force’s goal is to better understand what further changes may be needed to modernize B.C.’s tenancy laws. Their work includes:
- Talking to 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 task force will report findings and make recommendations to Premier Horgan and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Selina Robinson in fall 2018.
Deadline July 6, 2018
