Landlord Risk Mitigation Funds Report


Ready to Rent BC Association and Aunt Leah’s Place partnered on the Landlord Risk Mitigation Funds Report in 2018. They built the landlord mitigation fund toolkit to introduce a new program option to agencies and advocates dedicated to removing barriers to housing.

Based on what they learned from this project, they are optimistic that combining a landlord risk mitigation fund with RentSmart education would be a highly effective way to remove barriers to housing. Specifically, the report recommends the next important step is to pilot the approach to support youth who have left or are leaving government care, and young families moving from transitional housing to independent living.
