Tenancy Advice

The tenant advisor is available to all West Broadway tenants. Our staff is available for drop-in meetings or by appointment to provide advice regarding tenancy issues. These might include notice of rent increases, maintenance, pest control, eviction, and other questions related to tenancy rights and responsibilities.

The tenant advisor can help by:

  • Having one-on-one sessions with tenants to help find solutions to tenancy issues.

  • Offering office supports and materials such as typing, printing, scanning, and emails.

  • Helping tenants to understand their rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancies Act and the processes to enact rights through the Residential Tenant Branch.

  • Providing information about bed bug treatment and prevention supplies.

  • Informing and supporting tenants to navigate systems related to their tenancy such as Employment and Income Assistance, Manitoba Hydro, and 311.

  • Housing search drop-in hours are Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 4pm or by appointment. Staff are available to provide advice and assistance looking through rental listings and filling out applications for housing and benefits.
