Thank you!

We successfully held our first rally on the steps of the Legislature in Victoria, BC, October 22, to celebrate the milestone of reaching 10,000 signatures on our petition to end “no pets” policies in the province. In response, the Housing Minister has agreed to meet with us.

Other successes include reaching 10,000 Likes on our Facebook Page, and making a huge splash in the media.

 

Call to Action!

Petitions and letters keep pouring in, so clearly the fire is lit. We now call on YOU, our supporters, to write and call your MLA and the Housing Minister. Here is a template you can use.

This website is the home of Pets OK BC, a movement advocating for the abolition of unreasonable pet restrictions in rental housing in British Columbia, Canada. Over 14,000 British Columbians have joined us in this call by signing an online petition, but there is much advocacy work to be done before change will happen.

There is plenty of evidence to suggest that allowing pets in rentals enchances our society and can be good for both tenants and landlords.  However, people often have a lot of questions about the facts, so we have put together a FAQ page to help answer some of these commonly asked questions.
