Victoria Tenant Action Group
Victoria Tenant Action Group is a membership-based organization committed to transforming the housing system and ensuring access to housing for all. Our members include tenants, co-op residents, and people experiencing housing instability and homelessness. We work in solidarity with all people who do not own their homes and welcome the support of homeowners who share our vision for housing justice.
The City of Victoria Must End
the Criminalization of Homelessness!
In the upcoming March 4th discussion on the Parks Regulation Bylaw Amendment, we implore Victoria City Council to change the City’s current approach to homeless individuals living in parks. The bylaws currently in place, along with additional funding given to both hiring additional bylaw officers, and now hiring police officers to attend bylaw patrols of parks show a trend toward increased criminalization of homelessness. We demand and end to this hostile approach.
