My landlord gave me an eviction notice. What can I do?
The Residential Tenancy Act gives tenants the right to challenge all eviction notices. If you want to challenge the eviction, you need to be aware of the strict deadlines to apply for dispute resolution.

Good starting points include:
  • The Tenant Survival Guide, from TRAC, has a chapter on evictions.
  • Evictions, from TRAC, has information on all types of eviction notices and how they can be disputed.
  • Renting it Right, from TRAC, is an online course that covers evictions in a section called "Ending a Tenancy".
  • Residential Tenancies: Solution Explorer, from the provincial government, is an online tool that helps you find ways to deal with landlord/tenant disputes, including how to dispute evictions. 

Need more help?

  • Tenant Info Line, by TRAC, provides information, referrals and help for tenants dealing with residential tenancy law matters.
