Regroupement des comités logement et associations de locataires du Québec


Non-partisan political analysis

The Carrefour d'actions populaire de St-Jérôme continues its collaboration with the RCLALQ to introduce rent-setting measures. We continue to raise awareness among elected officials at all levels of government of the distress and injustice experienced by people in poverty, both in terms of housing and social assistance.

Active participation in the RCLALQ action plan


Campaign collaboration “Rents are exploding, control is necessary”.


Support for the memorandum aimed at regulating tourist accommodation and protecting the rental housing stock.


Collaboration aimed at denouncing Bill 31 which would put an end to the lease assignment.


We are asking the Quebec government to modify the legislation to require all takeover, eviction and major work projects to obtain court authorization and to be subject to mandatory monitoring in the following year. We also ask that a moratorium be imposed on recovery projects and those leading to the eviction of tenant households when the vacancy rate of rental housing is below the market equilibrium threshold, and that the recourses of victim tenants harassment of their landlord to end the lease are considerably improved. 


The absence of measures to control rents when there is a change of tenants encourages landlords to carry out forced evictions. The RCLALQ continues to demand the establishment of real rent control in Quebec, including a rent register and a cap on annual increases. Effectively controlling rents would significantly reduce the number of fraudulent evictions.
