Tenant Organizing Project
The Tenant Organizing Project works to empower tenants to protect and promote decent, safe, secure, and affordable housing in West Broadway and the inner city in the following ways:
Helping tenants to better understanding their rights and how to have them respected by landlords and government
Building the leadership and skills of tenants so they can work together to address their needs
Supporting the development of independent, tenant-led action groups
Advancing policy-change campaigns to improve tenants’ legal rights, protect housing affordability, and build tenant power
How can the Tenant Organizing Project help?
The Tenant Organizing Project can help by:
Answering tenancy related questions
Supporting tenants to work together with their neighbours to solve conflicts with landlords
Connecting tenants who are protecting their homes from rent increases, disrepair, eviction, or other problems
Supporting tenants to demand action from elected leaders to solve the housing crisis in our community
Listening to tenants to identify significant issues in their community (for example, Above Guideline Rent Increases, ongoing pest issues, needs for repairs etc.) and developing action plans to address them
Connecting tenants to advocacy campaigns that are fighting for social justice and an end to the housing crisis
Please Note: as a WBCO initiative, the Tenant Organizing Project’s primary catchment is the West Broadway neighbourhood, but we can provide support to tenants from any inner-city neighbourhood who wish to work with their neighbours to improve their housing situation.
