A two night information sharing experience is about to start with the City of Prince Rupert hosting two sessions towards learning more about the rights and responsibilities for both landlords and tenants.
We first tipped our readers to the program back in April when the sessions were announced and Tonight the first of the two sessions arrives with the Landlord focused program to take place at City Hall at 7PM.
The City's announcement of April outlining what to expect at tonight's session.
Are you a new or existing landlord in Prince Rupert and want to understand more about your rights and responsibilities under both the Residential Tenancy Act and the City’s Rental Maintenance Standards Bylaw?
Come to this free information session to be held in Council Chambers, City Hall (424 3rd Avenue West) on Tuesday, May 30th at 7 pm. City staff along with the Prince Rupert Unemployed Action Centre Legal Advocate will be on hand to present information and answer questions.
Light refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
Tomorrow the focus shifts to the rights of tenants and the location shifts as well, with the Wednesday night session to take place at the Prince Rupert Library.
The event hosted by the City, Library and Prince Rupert Unemployed Action Centre.
Learn more about the Wednesday session from the City's event page for the night.
The genesis towards the twin information sessions came out of the last few years of discussion related to the acute shortage of affordable housing in the community and the growing issues of renovictions.
You can dig deeper into those themes through our Housing archive pages.
