Community Legal Assistance Society has recently published a press release on the critical issue of halting evictions as part of government’s response to COVID-19.

“We would like to see and help government facilitate a complete moratorium on all evictions effective immediately, much like the action taken in Ontario and Quebec and consistent with the renter support the Minister of Finance referenced in Monday’s press conference”
Jacqui Mendes, Executive Director

“We believe that a key component of this would be to ensure renters are free to self-isolate or quarantine without the threat of losing their homes”
Danielle Sabelli, Lawyer
