Abstract:  This fifth edition of the Tenants' Handbook is issued by Communitas Incorporated "to outline those rights which tenants have under the existing law, and to explain how to obtain these rights. It is important that people do use the law to get those rights which they are entitled to."

Because the Alberta Legislature has passed a new Landlord-Tenant Act (Fall, 1978), but has not yet proclaimed it, the booklet contains coded inserts that will apply to the new Act but are not yet in effect. Also included are sample forms to be used in various negotiations and disputes, as well as charts comparing the Landlord-Tenant Legislation in all the provinces and territories.

While advising tenants how to safeguard their rights and how to respond in conflict situations, the booklet states that "Tenants' issues will not be seriously dealt with until tenants themselves band together to present their case."
