Information Release

With the passing of BILL 44 Building and Strata Statutes Amendment Act, 2022 strata corporations across BC will no longer be able to enforce bylaws that prohibit or restrict rentals. Effectively immediately, all rental bylaws are no longer enforceable. Landlords are still obliged to provide a strata corporation with a Form K Notice of Tenant’s responsibilities and landlords and tenants must comply with all other bylaws and rules of a strata corporation. The application of an Owner Developer Form J Rental Disclosure no longer applies. Short term accommodation bylaws the prohibit AirBnB or VRBO type uses are still in full force and effect, with fines of up to $1,000 per day if a strata corporation has amended their bylaws. Only age restriction bylaws of 55 and over that apply to occupancy are now enforceable with a requirement to accommodate live in care givers or support persons. 

The CHOA of BC will be hosting a free Bill 44 Information Webinar on November 30, 2022 at 12:00noon. Please visit the CHOA website at for a link to the webinar.
