Tenants in Victoria are facing a housing crisis. Sky-high rental rates, low vacancies, and a lack of tenant protections are making renters vulnerable to inadequate housing and housing insecurity.

The Victoria Tenant Action Group (VTAG) 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.

VTAG is a grassroots group. The first discussions were held amongst a group of concerned tenants in May 2017. These tenants formed "VTAG" and launched the initiative publicly in October 2017. To learn more about our guiding principles, read our Basis of Unity. Want to get involved? Become a member!
