Fixed Term Lease Town Hall

February 8, 2017- 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Landlords throughout Metro Vancouver are increasingly exploiting a loophole in the Residential Tenancy Act by getting tenants to unknowingly sign Fixed Term Tenancy Leases, making it easier for them to evict tenants without proper due process and raise the rents above the yearly maximum. A sharp rent increase or eviction has devastating effects for all of us, but especially severe impacts on low-income folks who as a result may become homeless. We must join in solidarity and fight for tenant rights!

The DTES SRO Collaborative and The Carnegie Community Action Project invite you to join us and fight back!

Where: Carnegie Community Centre Theatre

When: Wednesday, February 8th @ 6:30 PM

What:

Learn your rights!

Learn what you are signing in a lease agreement!

Help us lobby to close the Fixed Term Tenancy loophole in the RTA!
