BCPRC submits to Rental Housing Task Force

Posted on

The government should have heard you loud and clear: Housing is the Number One challenge in BC!

Housing came up as the highest priority in all but one of the 28 communities that the government visited during the poverty reduction consultations.

The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition made it’s submission to the Rental Housing Task Force. 

Along with our members, such as the Vancouver Tenants’ Union and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, we are calling for stronger tenant protections including, in particular, tying rent control to the unit as a central recommendation within an effective poverty reduction plan because of the impact of sky-rocketing rents on low-income individuals and families.
