NB Premier Blaine Higgs

Premier Blaine Higgs is committing to a 90 day review of the rental situation in the province. The commitment was included in his State of the Province address this afternoon.

Higgs says the decision to move ahead with the review is based on feedback and concerns about affordable housing and recent significant rent increases around the province.

The review will include evaluating the market – vacancy rates – rental rates and trends – as well as the overall impact of COVID-19.
