What We Do For Members
RRAP helps property owners do things as a group that are not possible on an individual basis.
We represent the interests of property owners to government(s) to ensure legislation and regulations that are fair and balanced.
Why: PEI is the most regulated rental markets in Canada. As such, it is essential that RRAP constantly reach out to politicians and officials in government.
What We do: RRAP appears before legislative committees, organizes meetings with the Premier and Ministers, prepares briefs/presentations for Members of the Legislative Assembly and meets with officials to constantly promote better government decision-making.
Communications and Media Relations
We serve as the voice of property owners with industry, media, the public and other stakeholders to ensure our industry’s issues are understood and recognized.
Why: Rental issues and stories make headlines. Sometimes these headlines are founded and the entire sector carries the burden of an image created by the actions of a few.
Other times, the media have got the facts wrong or simply choose to present one side of a story.
As such providing factual information to the media, the public, and even our own members is essential.
What do we do: RRAP regularly interacts with the media, responding to reporters’ questions and/or issuing our own news releases in response to issues of the day. Our goal is to provide fair and objective information that becomes part of the story.
We provide property owners with tools, information, and discount programs to allow them to operate their businesses as efficiently as possible.
Why: Our sector is made up of thousands of small businesses as well as some larger operators. Our goal is to identify areas where RRAP can provide information, tools, and discount programs to the sector in a cost-effective manner.
What do we do: We help members in a number of ways with tools such as sample leases/legal documents, information webinars on topics of interests such as CMHC/provincial housing programs, and assistance in interpreting IRAC rules and guidelines.
We also work with suppliers to secure discount pricing for members on goods and services.
These are just some of the ways we support the sector.
