Community living in the time of COVID-19: navigating the law

May 6th, 2020 by Iler Campbell

This is part of a series of webinars we’re running all May long. Check out the other events here!

We’ve just posted a recording of Celia Chandler’s webinar, “Community living in the time of COVID-19: navigating the law.” Check it out below.


Webinar description:

Living together in non-profit or co-operative housing can sometimes lead to conflicts – let’s face it, some people do things that “bug” other people and sometimes things can escalate as a result.

The physical distancing and “stay home” requirements of COVID-19 is stressful, making many behave in ways we wouldn’t normally behave. And this can make 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.
