British Columbia’s Commercial Tenancy Act is badly out of date. Enacted in the late 1890s, the Act largely restates English legislation from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Commercial Tenancy Act Reform Project examined the creation of a new and relevant legal framework for an important area of the British Columbia economy.
The project was supported by the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia and the Notary Foundation of British Columbia.
