COVID-19: your tenancy

If you're a renter in Vancouver and have questions about your tenancy during COVID-19, review the current supports available.

As part of our commitment to protecting renters in Vancouver, the Renter Office provides a first point of contact to:

  • Answer questions
  • Provide information on City policies and permits
  • Refer renters to other organizations that can help

Navigating the rental process and finding information that matches your situation can be very confusing.

We're here to help you find the information you need, and support you to understand and pursue your rights as a renter. Keep updated on our latest developments by signing up for our newsletter.
