Help tell the story of eviction in British Columbia.
Have you been evicted or forced to move? Share your story and the impact it’s had on you. We want to use this information to help make tenant protections stronger in B.C.
This project is being run by the Legal Advocacy program at First United in Vancouver, BC, that gives legal help to tenants. We want to document and understand evictions and forced moves of tenants in British Columbia.
We want to learn:
-where evictions and forced moves are happening in our communities,
-who is affected by them, and
-what the impacts are.
The information you provide may be included in a general map, and by participating, you agree that we can use your information on a general map (without identifying you). An example of this would be placing a dot on the map to show the approximate location of your eviction.
You do not need to give your name in this survey, and you may choose not to give your email or phone number.
We will never share any identifying information about you (such as your email or phone number) without your consent.
Identifying information will be visible only to the Staff Lawyer and designated staff within the Advocacy program.
