Creating a culture of tenants’ rights, knowledge, and empowerment for our community.

In 2022, New Dawn Enterprises began the Tenant Education, Empowerment and Advocacy Project in Sydney, Nova Scotia with the goal of supporting local tenants.

We serve to communicate information about tenants’ rights to local people living in rental housing. We provide education workshops, foster tenant organizing, and create information materials. Check out the CBRM Tenants’ Rights Handbook, or learn about out CBRM Tenants’ Rights Hotline pilot project that took place Fall 2023.
