The BC government announced on June 19 that they're extending the rental supplement program and moratorium on rent increases, while relaxing some of the rules around the eviction ban. 

The new rules on rental and tenancy came into effect on June 24.

Eviction, access rules relaxed 

The province now allows evictions for reasons other than unpaid rent. This includes the ability to evict tenants when taking possession of a home, subject to a notice period. 

These changes also include relaxed guidelines on accessing occupied units for repairs, maintenance, and showings. 

Rent supplement 

The rental supplement program will continue until the end of August. Applicants who are already approved for the supplement won’t have to re-apply. 

Rent freeze 

The province also stated the ban on rent increases will remain in effect. There’s no end date for the ban.
