Statement from Rent Smart Education and Support Society:
Rent Smart Education and Support Society and Capital Region Housing Corporation (Alberta) have worked together to bring tenant education to the province since 2016. With over 160 Alberta Rent Smart Educators and multiple Master Trainers we have decided that it is time part ways effective July 15, 2020.
Support and coordination for master trainers, educators and community organizations will continue through the main Rent Smart office and online portal.
Statement from Capital Region Housing:
Since 2016, Capital Region Housing (Edmonton, AB) has worked in partnership with Rent Smart Education and Support Society (Victoria, BC). We believe in the RentSmart program and its impact on tenants, particularly those who may face barriers to successful tenancies and housing stability.
As of July 15, 2020, this partnership will be coming to a conclusion. Here at Capital Region Housing, we thank the Rent Smart Education and Support Society for working with us as their first provincial partner outside of British Columbia. Having trained over 160 Alberta Educators, we have enjoyed helping to build RentSmart into a program where it can serve tenants and landlords across Canada.
