Ready to Rent BC opens doors to housing through RentSmart education. Our theory of change is that education is a transformative and key component in developing the tools and knowledge to be good tenants, good landlords and increase housing stability.
Tenants want a safe, suitable, affordable home to rent; landlords want tenants to pay rent on time, and take care of their property. Being a good tenant or a good landlord is not an innate skill. RentSmart provides education and support to tenants, landlords, and community champions with one goal: Successful Tenancies.
Successful tenancies are key to building strong communities, increasing housing stability and preventing homelessness.
