Landlord and Tenant Information

In Canada, each province has it's own set of tenancy laws and the Whistler Housing Authority can connect tenants and landlords with resources specific to British Columbia.

The Act does not apply to living accommodation in which the tenant shares bathroom or kitchen facilities with the owner of that accommodation.
