Open letter to the members of the Select Committee on the Landlord and Tenant Act - Steve Nordick (MLA-Klondike), Steve Cardiff (MLA-Mount Lorne) and Darius Elias (MLA-Vuntut Gwitchin):

The Yukon Status of Women Council and working group on the Yukon Landlord and Tenant Act congratulate the select committee on the comprehensive report tabled in the legislature November 9.

We are pleased with the public process that gave a voice to multiple issues, points of views and raised a spectrum of concerns.

You listened well.

We are also heartened that many of our recommendations were heard and included in the recommendations of the report.

We believe your recommendations achieve a healthy balance between the rights and responsibilities of both landlords and tenants.

Now that the report has been tabled in the legislature, we hope that the process of adopting and following up on the recommendations will be swift and that the minister will move forward on new legislation quickly.

The urgency to renew this act was expressed through the establishment of the select committee and by the motion to introduce a new law by the fall 2010 sitting of the legislature.

Changes to the landlord and tenant act will go far in alleviating many of the concerns expressed by Yukon citizens.

Thank you, again, for the opportunity to participate in the process.

We commend the members of the select committee for your hard work.

Charlotte Hrenchuk, Yukon Status of Women Council and working group
