Calgary has a cold weather law. From 01 Jan to 15 April a landlord can not terminate a rental because of non-payment of rent. (Dates may be off - been a while since I was in Calgary).

A friend recently told me that PEI has introduced the same law. I can not find any reference to it in the Rental Act.

Anyone know if it is true or not?

In Calgary it is a major headache for landlords. Many people move in as winter sets in (Oct. and Nov.) pay the rent for the first few months and then stop paying during the cold period.

They then just vacate on the last day and move somewhere else.

I for a period of time thought that PEI did have the same law but after some reading I don't think we do. I was also under the impression that Maritime Electric couldn't cut your power during winter, but they could restrict it(some NA companies are bound by this) but not cut it completely, don't think that is the case either though after some searching, However from what I understand, if you are up front and honest they will work with you as hard as they can to help you through the winter months, you still owe what you use but they will help you the best they can if you plead you case........

I actually had this conversation with one of the people up at IRAC..Yes you can evict at any time of the year and for any reasons that are in the rentals act.

Pei hasn't introduced any new laws in the act. It has to be approved through the legislature to do this. There was a new act revised back in 06 I believe and it hasn't been put in place as of yet. I had called Irac and asked, and they were trying to get it put in place. Nobody wants to touch it for some reason

Not being able to evict for any reason just because it is winter is a stupid law.
Hope it doesn't get implemented here.

I would assume there is a timeframe for eviction with no reason given.
I assume landlord can't just kick someone out immediately for no reason (even if they give the rent paid back). Must be a grace period?

Time frame for non payment of rent is 20 days otherwise it's 30. If you feel they are putting your building or others in danger you can apply to have them removed earlier.
