Renewal of Tenancy Agreements


 This is a reminder to Tsawout Housing clients that it's time for the annual renewal of Tenancy agreements. Please bring in verification of income (2 consecutive pay stubs, Social Assistance pay stubs, T4's from taxes and a letter signed and dated by your employer). By doing so, rent will be established at 25% of your household income.


Message from the Housing Department

It is time to renew your annual Tenancy Agreement! Please bring in proof of income to the Housing office by the end of March. Proof of income includes:

  • A signed & dated letter from your Employer
  • 2 consecutive pay stubs
  • T4’s for filing your taxes
  • Social Assistance cheque stub

It is very important that you get this done so your rent can then be established at 25% of your income. If you do not bring in an Income Verification your rent will be set at the Lower End of Market (LEM). This amount is set by CMHC who provides funding for our houses. It is based on the lowest amount of what is charged in the regular housing market for houses of a similar size. LEM is usually higher than 25% of your income and you will owe that amount per month if arrears accumulate.
