Vancouver city council has approved new measures to protect renters.
The new policy aims to support tenants should they be pushed out of their homes because of renovation or redevelopment.
Tenants can now access up to one thousand dollars in moving costs.
They can also get up to six months’ free rent for tenancies over 20 years.
And any low-income earners who are displaced will get an alternative place to stay within 10 per cent of their existing rent.
