Organizing can help improve tenant rights in Canada

Tenant organizer Yutaka Dirks writes that through organizing "tenants can win increased legal protections from eviction, funding for new social housing, and, eventually, the full control of their own homes."

"In concert with other movements, these efforts can help build the organizing skills and collective power that are necessary to challenge a political and economic system that privileges property and those who own it above all else."

In this article, Dirks describes different examples of effective tenant organizing in various provinces across Canada.
