SRO School

SRO Tenants meet every Saturday from October-December 2016 from 11:30-1:00pm in the Classroom at the Carnegie Community Centre on 3rd floor. We are sensitive to trauma and attempting to create a safer space for tenants.  It is wheelchair accessible and lunch/coffee is provided. We have stopped flyering and postering in the community because our room is full!  Spring Session will begin again in March 2017.

Fall/Winter 2016 Topics include:

  • Evidence is more important than stories, learn to collect it.
  • Write a letter to your landlord
  • Get the city to inspect problems
  • Take your landlord to housing court (BC Residential Tenancy Branch)
  • Responding effectively to landlord backlash
  • Class action lawsuits

SRO tenants loved our guest speakers in the spring/summer session, so we are planning to bring back lawyers, policy makers, police and fire department reps who work and are responsible for SROs for this Fall/Winter Session.
