TODAY: Virtual General Meeting at 2pm – Vancouver Tenants Union

Hi Bepra,

A reminder that our General Meeting is today at 2:00pm! See our previous email with the agenda and meeting links below.


Bepra —

Join us for our first General Meeting of the year on Sunday, February 20, at 2:00pm. 

We’ll start with updates from the new Defend Broadway campaign working group, which wrapped up their rent survey project in December and has been planning the next steps.

Next, we’ll review a special resolution brought by the Steering Committee to shore up our union’s policy demands ahead of the 2022 municipal elections.

Nearly 100 members responded to the survey we sent out last weekend, however a few key priorities emerged in the feedback we received. We’ve attempted to summarize these top priorities in our draft special resolutionPlease note, there will be ample time to discuss and propose amendments.

Read the special resolution on our meeting reference page here.  

We anticipate the meeting will be about two hours long and will aim to have a short break about half way through.

Proposed Agenda:

  • Land Acknowledgement and Community Agreements (15 mins)
  • Defend Broadway Campaign Update (30 mins)
  • Special resolution on Municipal Policy Demands for 2022 (60 mins)
    • Presentation summarizing feedback from survey
