LandlordBC Virtual Education

LandlordBC typically hosts 4-5 in-person social and educational events per year. With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis we, like many organizations, have pivoted to more virtual education through our Webinar Series. Each month we bring timely information right into your home or office presented by our staff, as well as a number of guest speakers who are experts in their fields.

In order for us to continue to bring you this excellent content, we will now be charging a small fee for these online events. Fees will be applicable to non LandlordBC members.

Next Webinar: The Human Rights Code of British Columbia – Landlords and Duty to Accommodate

Date: September 24, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Landlords have a duty to accommodate tenants with physical disabilities, mental health issues, and other protected personal characteristics. The duty to accommodate may require a landlord to make a building more wheelchair accessible, adjust a no-pet rule to accommodate a service animal, or deal with smoking that impacts another tenant’s medical condition. It is a complicated but incredibly important topic.

In this webinar, Laura Track, Director of Education & Lawyer – Human Rights Clinic, provides rental housing providers with an in depth look at this often-misunderstood legal concept. Regardless of portfolio size, landlords may run into situations that require an understating of what constitutes a Duty to Accommodate.
