Nova Scotia ACORN Members Demand a Strengthening of Tenants’ Rights

An Open Letter to MLA Candidates
ACORN members and their allies are coming together to demand a strengthening of tenants’ rights in Nova Scotia. We have identified three key changes that the next government can enact immediately:
·      Bring back rent control to Nova Scotia by re-implementing the Rent Review Act.
·      Revising the Residential Tenancy Act to allow to tenants’ to file a collective complaint against their landlord.
·      Provincial support for enforcing municipal minimum standards by-laws to ensure the health and safety of tenants.
Tenants make up a significant portion of the electorate. We are students, seniors, families, and voters. We deserve to know where you stand on tenant’s rights.
