Free legal webinar series – every Wednesday in May

April 24th, 2020 by Iler Campbell

Every Wednesday in May: Free legal webinars for co-op & non-profit housing, employers and small business.

We know that COVID-19 has brought new challenges, including many legal ones.  We know too that the old legal challenges are all still there. Finally, we know that organizers of all in-person conferences and workshops have cancelled them for the foreseeable future.  The need to learn, however, has not stopped.

We’re here to help.

Join us in May every Wednesday at noon for a free legal webinar series.

Community Living in the time of COVID-19: Navigating the law

May 6 with Celia Chandler, lawyer at Iler Campbell LLP

Watch a recording of this webinar:

Living together in non-profit or co-operative housing can sometimes lead to conflicts. And COVID-19 has made the potential for conflict even greater.

This one-hour webinar will:

  1. remind housing providers about the law that relates to behaviour – primarily the Residential Tenancies Act and the Human Rights Code;
  2. provide some information about tools available to housing providers to resolve these conflicts in non-pandemic times;
  3. talk about how to use these tools during the COVID-19 restrictions; and
  4. think to the future about the long-lasting impacts of this period on housing providers and how they manage tenant and member relationships.
