Vancouver COVID-19 Update Episode April 30, 2020

Episode 13 - The Situation for Renters

10:30am - 11:30am

It’s been just over a month since the BC NDP unrolled a handful of new supports for renters and landlords impacted by COVID-19. 45,000 applications have been submitted for the province's temporary rental supplement, but only a third of applicants have received money. The Vancouver Tenants Union says this $300-$500 supplement isn't enough and LandlordBC is now calling for it to be doubled.

In this episodes of the Vancouver COVID-19 Update, Alex de Boer speaks with VTU Steering Committee member Mazdak Gharibnavaz about LandlordBC's recent call to increase the province's rental supplement and how renters are faring as May 1st approaches.
