A workshop for landlords is coming to Prince George.

Back in Dec. 2018, the B.C. government’s Rental Housing Task Force issued 23 recommendations to modernize and improve the province's residential tenancy laws.

One of the recommendations was to make the Residential Tenancy Branch more responsive, accessible, and proactive with more opportunities to educate landlords and renters on their rights and responsibilities.

LandlordBC was selected to develop and administer the landlord education initiatives and is now ready to roll out these workshops.

Prince George is one of 13 places the educational workshops will be held.

Participation in the workshops is free to attendees, and all landlords, property managers, rental building managers, and resident caretakers are invited and encouraged to attend.

“Whether a landlord rents one unit or one hundred there are key pieces of legislation that govern the landlord and tenant relationship,” says LandlordBC in a release. “These interactive and in-depth workshops will provide rental housing providers with the tools and fundamentals needed for successful tenancies.”

Topics include will include the Residential Tenancy Act, the Human Rights Code and privacy guidelines.

There will also be an opportunity for participants to gain important technical knowledge in-person from knowledgeable experts.

The workshop takes place Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in Room 7-172 in the Bentley Centre.

Participants can sign up now for the free workshop in their region by going to the dedicated registration website.

Pre-registration is required.
