BC Privacy Guidelines for landlords and tenants


In British Columbia, landlords and property managers acting on their behalf must adhere to the privacy rules contained in the BC Personal Information Protection Act ("PIPA").

These guidelines are intended to assist landlords and property managers in discharging their duties under the Residential Tenancy Act ("RTA") in a manner that respects the privacy of tenants and promotes transparency in the operation of landlord and tenant relationships. In this document, the word "tenant" includes a prospective tenant.
