Finding rental housing in Vancouver can be a challenge for residents of all income brackets. For lower-income tenants, it's particularly difficult.
That is why Council is actively working to:
- Advocate for renters and help renters understand their rights
- Protect the existing supply of rental housing
- Provide grants to social and co-op housing providers
- Encourage new market rental housing units
Our goal is the make sure every resident has a safe, suitable home.
Rental disputes and evictions
The BC government regulates tenancies and arbitrates tenant-landlord relationships.
When challenges arise for renters and landlords, the Provincial Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) guides the resolution of those disagreements.
