Ready to Rent BC believes in the power of education to transform lives.
Ready to Rent BC has learned that housing stability requires that both tenants and landlords have the combination of housing, rights and responsibility knowledge, communication and conflict resolution skills, budgeting and financial management capabilities, understanding of maintenance do’s and don’ts and have options for managing a crisis. RentSmart education has been informed by tenant and landlord experiences and needs, and builds this capacity.
We also recognize the need for an integrated province-wide approach that supports people to find and maintain good rental housing, and rewards landlords and housing providers with long-term stable tenants who care for housing assets.
Our model is grounded in a housing stability and homelessness prevention framework.
