Tenant Advocacy

If you’re worried about losing your private, public or social housing tenancy, or would like to find out about your rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancy Act, we can help. Talk to our Tenant Advocacy team for confidential help and advice.

  • Your rights and responsibilities as a tenant
  • Help preparing rental/home-related documents
  • Landlord negotiations and mediation
  • Preparation for court and legal representation
