PSA: Take action to stop thousands of evictions!

As you may already know, tomorrow the Provincial eviction ban will end and 2000-6000 tenants who are in rent debt because of COVID-19 will be served eviction notices. 

We need to act now, join ACORN TOMORROW AT 1PM outside the legislature to protest these evictions! 

WHEN: Tuesday, June 30th from 1-3pm

WHERE: NS Legislature – 1726 Hollis St.

Masks required, sanitizer provided, social distancing will be enforced. 

We’re demanding the Province do the following:- Ban evictions due to COVID-19 and create a repayment program through the residential tenancies board. – Create a Provincial rent grant program so that tenants in arrears can pay off their rent debt.  

If you can’t make it tomorrow, click through here to send an email to your representatives calling on them to stop these evictions! And see our Facebook page for a script and list of numbers to call and demand the government take action.

Housing is a human right! No one should be evicted during a pandemic.Take action! Fight back! Join us tomorrow!
