URGENT: Rent is due in a week and there’s still no plan to help renters who can’t afford their rent or bills because of COVID-19.

The most powerful thing we can do right now to make our voices heard and convince Prime Minister Trudeau and the premiers to help renters is flood them with personal messages from people all across the country. Please email Prime Minister Trudeau and Canada’s premiers, asking them to cancel rent, evictions, and utility payments during COVID-19.

Note: In the past, we’ve sometimes written draft emails for people like you to edit and send on to your local decision maker, so you can have your say at the click of a button. But right now, we believe the most powerful thing is for our governments to hear from local people with their own, personal messages. Whether long or short, they’re powerful. We've included some talking points below to get you started.

Talking points:
  • Explain in your own words why the issues is so important to you
  • You could tell them why you think it’s important that nobody has to worry about not being able to pay their rent
  • If you have a personal story about yourself or someone you know who’d struggle to pay rent if they lose their job, that would go a long way too.
  • You could say that you think it’s unfair for tenants not to have the same protections as homeowners who are being given a break on their mortgage payments
  • You could let them know that other countries like Italy have cancelled rent and mortgage payments during the COVID-19 pandemic.
