On November 17, 2021, the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island amended the Rental of Residential Property Act and approved a moratorium on evictions served for renovations.
This means tenants can no longer be evicted for the purpose of renovations unless the renovations are necessary to protect or preserve the property or to protect the health and safety of persons. Landlords must obtain the necessary permits and approvals required by law to complete the renovations.
This restriction is in place until November 1, 2023.
Anyone with questions can call the Rental Office at 902-892-3501 (toll-free 1-800-501-6268) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
