Tenant Relocation and Protection Policy (TRPP)

Rising housing costs and low rental-housing vacancy rates mean renters may have difficulty finding and affording suitable housing.

This difficulty increases when they have to move because their building gets renovated or redeveloped.

We're taking action to add immediate supports for renters. 

Enhanced Broadway Plan area protections

On June 22, 2022, Council approved the Broadway Plan, which introduced enhanced tenant protections for renters in the Broadway Plan area, in addition to the existing City-wide Tenant Relocation and Protection Policy (TRPP).
