General Landlord & Tenant Resources

In Canada, each province has its own set of tenancy laws. Below are ways that tenants and landlords can connect with resources specific to British Columbia.

The Residential Tenancy Act does not apply to living in an accommodation in which the tenant shares bathroom or kitchen facilities with the owner of that accommodation. Please see the resources below if you need assistance on navigating a tenancy in British Columbia.

The WHA does not provide legal advice on the Residential Tenancy Act, but we do provide information on employee-restricted properties in Whistler upon request.
