The rules for renting property in the Northwest Territories are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act. The act appoints a rental officer to enforce the act, provide the public with information, and resolve disputes between landlords and tenants who have entered into residential tenancy agreements. Decisions by the rental officer have the same force as a Supreme Court order. The legalization of cannabis will require both landlords and tenants to be aware of how the legislation will affect the usage of cannabis in their residences.
The Department of Justice makes these decisions available on behalf of the Rental Officer. Any questions or concerns about these decisions should be directed to the Rental Officer.
Please note that decisions made after July 2016 are not published using the full names of the parties to the application. If you are looking for Reasons for Decision for a specific file you must search for the relevant file number. Please be aware it can take up to two months after a decision has been written for the decision to be published.
