First Meeting Announcement to Elect a Board of Members for Park Vista Tenants' Association

What is a Tenants’ Association?
A group of tenants who have come together to improve their situation as tenants and create community bonds through meetings and events.
Can Our Landlords Stop Us From Forming a Tenants’ Association?
NO! We have the legal right to organize. The Residential Tenancies Act says that a landlord cannot interfere with any tenant who is organizing or joining a tenant association (RTA, s. 83, s.233)

How Can We Help Ourselves?
The PVTA can take on legal issues such as maintenance, security, unfair evictions, rent increases, etc.

Will There Be Membership Dues?
Yes. Unfortunately, there are things that do cost money, such as photocopying legal fees, etc. Dues will range between $5 - $10 per year per household. If a perspective member is in financial straits, but wishes to join, alternative arrangements may be made.

They will be held on Wednesdays at 7 pm. Notices will be sent at least 10 days prior to the meeting. If you have an issue that you would like to have on the Agenda at the meeting it must be made in writing no later than the Monday before the meeting. This can be done via email or by dropping a notice off at the apartment of your Floor or Building Captain.

Wednesday, July 23rd, at 7pm
7 Park Vista Lobby

At this time we will elect our board members. If you are intent on running it is vital that you attend this meeting. We will also be striking committees, appointing Floor and Building Captains, and discussing issues such as fees. This meeting will help to set the agenda of the PVTA. Attendance is strongly suggested.
