Okanagan landlord says communication is key if rent will be late

Renters can get help to pay

Even though the provincial government has put a moratorium on evictions, a local property manager says people still need to do what they can to pay their rent.

Premier John Horgan announced Wednesday that regular evictions cannot take place during the COVID-19 pandemic and that his government will be offering a $500 rent subsidy to certain qualifiers.

For others who have lost their jobs or can’t work because of the COVID-19 virus, national funding like employment insurance or the newly introduced Canada Emergency Response Benefit can help pay the rent. It is up to the tenants, however, to secure that funding.
