Effective immediately, the Regional Emergency Operations Centre advises that all hotels, lease properties, work camps and rental accommodation operators must maintain the prices that were in effect on April 30, 2016.
This will remain in effect under the Provincial State of Emergency declared on May 4, 2016. Those landlords and property owners that are charging prices above April 30 prices will be investigated and enforcement action will be taken. We will be monitoring this issue closely. We hope that the spirit of goodwill and co-operation associated with the lengthy evacuation will continue as we begin to rebuild our community.
Residents with concerns about increases in the cost of services should contact the PULSE line at 1-780-743-7000.
