Yukon Landlord Resources is a regional overview of organizations that support landlord knowledge and education. This listicle continues with resources for the territories, with direct quotes from the individual websites. I started this project with Alberta Landlord Resources and will continue adding provincial and some municipal resources until all 10 provinces and three territories are covered.

Residential Tenancies Act

As a landlord it’s critical you learn the laws that apply to you and your tenants in a residential rental relationship. The Residential Tenancies Act is the law that governs landlord and tenant relations in residential rental accommodations. All provinces have their individual landlord-tenant acts that landlords should learn and apply.

Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (RLTA) Yukon

The RLTA provides information about the Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (the “RLTA”) and regulations for the Yukon.

Landlord and Tenant Responsibilities is a general summary of the Yukon Landlord and Tenant Act, outlining landlord and tenant responsibilities and where to go if you have a problem.

Dispute Resolution

Residential Tenancies Office — provides information about the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants as set out in the Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. It provides legally binding dispute resolution when issues arise that cannot be resolved by landlords and tenants.

Community Supports

Each province provides community supports free of charge in areas of housing, food, crime prevention, and crisis situations. For example, if you have a tenant who lost their job and cannot afford housing or food, Yukon 211 can provide support.

Yukon Government Department of Community Services helps Yukoners through accessible, integrated programs and services tailored to their needs.


The 211-telephone line connects users with vital community and social resources, close to home and specific to their needs. From basic needs like housing and food, to support for seniors and children, to responding to crisis situations.
