Tenant Relocation Policies

Maple Ridge has adopted policies to assist tenants of rental buildings that are redeveloped and to retain purpose-built rental housing.

The policies establish requirements for property owners/developers who seek to redevelop existing purpose-built rental housing to provide assistance to any displaced tenants. The requirements are now part of any rezoning application, heritage revitalization agreement,  application for the strata conversion of a previously occupied building, or existing housing agreements.

Why did we do this?

The City of Maple Ridge's Housing Action Plan outlines priority issues, including the need for market and affordable rental housing. Existing rental housing stock in Maple Ridge is aging and the demand for rental housing is increasing. The City is aware of the challenges of maintaining older rental stock and the possibility of tenant displacement through redevelopment. 

The tenant relocation policies were developed to ensure tenants in rental buildings impacted by demolition and redevelopment are adequately notified, compensated, and assisted in finding housing. These policies are also intended to help retain purpose-built market rental housing.
