Yukon seeks feedback on landlord and tenant act
The Yukon government is looking for public feedback into the Residential Landlord and Tenant Act that was passed in December 2012.
Some of the changes include the establishment of an office to settle disputes out of court but specific regulations still need to be ironed out.
"That includes things like minimum rental standards, what should be allowed in terms of fees in addition to a security deposit and all those regulatory matters that need decisions on before the act can come into effect," said Michael Noseworthy, director of Employment Standards and Residential Tenancies with the Department of Community Services.
Critics of the government's legislature have pointed out a lack of protections for rent increases and evictions.
The last time the territory's Landlord and Tenant Act had any significant changes was in the 1970s.
The public has until March 11 to make comments.
