Business Licenses for Edmonton Landlords?

Posted by John Carle on Saturday, March 12, 2022 at 9:22 AM  Comment

In an effort to "level the playing field" between tenants and landlords, a Edmonton city councillor is proposing a business license and database of landlords operating in Edmonton. 

The idea is that tenants could use this database to check on the performance and reliability of prospective landlords, much as a landlord does by checking a prospective tenants credit rating and employment.

Do you think this is a good idea? Would it be helpful for tenants, or is this just another tax-grab from the city? Comment below!
