History – Our Story
Ready to Rent BC was founded by a group of citizens and service-related agencies in the Victoria region that came together to find solutions for unstably housed and homeless families. Our first course was piloted in 2009, and Ready to Rent BC (R2R) was incorporated in 2011. Since then, R2R has been steadily expanding it's RentSmart model to meet the need for pro-active solutions that increase housing stability and prevent homelessness.
RentSmart provides education that builds the skills, knowledge and confidence of participants while respecting them as adult learners through engaged and participatory curriculum. As our educational programs have grown throughout British Columbia, we recognize that every tenant and landlord could benefit from RentSmart.
