Proposed Residential Tenancy Act

As the ministry responsible for the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission, the PEI Department of Education and Lifelong Learning invited Islanders to take part in a public engagement process on legislation related to landlord and tenant rights.

The Residential Tenancy Act is new legislation that will be considered by the Legislative Assembly of PEI. If the assembly votes to pass this legislation, it will replace the Rental of Residential Property Act. The new Act will provide a modern legislative framework for the rental of residential property, and better protect tenants and landlords while addressing the realities of the current housing situation in Prince Edward Island.

The first round of consultations on the proposed Residential Tenancy Act is now closed and submissions are being reviewed. The consultation process included in-person public sessions, telephone interviews, online surveys and written submissions. 

Please check back. Islanders will be invited to participate in a second round of consultations, at which time information will be provided on the outcomes of the first round of consultation.
