CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

A new website is now available for Island tenants – www.rentingpei.ca

The Tenant Support Centre, a project of Community Legal Information Association (CLIA), has launched the new website. Rentingpei.ca provides plain language legal information about tenants’ rights and responsibilities. 

CLIA has worked in collaboration with the office of the director of residential rental property to develop the website content.

“It is important that Island tenants know their rights and responsibilities,” said Ellen Mullally, executive director of CLIA. “Rentingpei.ca is a valuable and easy to use resource for tenants.

The site is organized according to each stage of renting: before you rent, while you rent and leaving your rental. 

"There is also information about resolving conflict and about other community supports available for tenants.”

In addition, workshops for tenants and landlords will be offered.

Starting in September, separate workshops for tenants and landlords will be offered across the Island and will provide detailed information about their respective rights and responsibilities.

Those interested in booking a free workshop can contact: 902-940-5368 or tenantsupport@legainfopei.ca

CLIA is a registered charity that provides free legal information to Islanders. To find out more, visit www.legalinfopei.ca.
