"I commend the work your organization does to support residential landlords in Alberta, especially now during an unprecedented global health crisis. I appreciated the opportunity to join the conversation on April 9, 2020 with Honourable Josephine Pon, Minister of Seniors and Housing to discuss your concerns. Following the teleconference, I provided direction to my staff to connect with you to obtain specific information on the financial pressures landlords face as a result of rent arrears, shortfalls and payment arrangements. I believe working with our stakeholders will build a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by all Albertans, including landlords and tenants". John Thompson Assistant Deputy Minister Housing Division, Seniors and Housing
