Crime Free Multi-Housing

Crime Free Multi-Housing

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program (CFMH) is designed to help owners, managers and residents keep illegal and nuisance activity off rental property. Certified rental properties mean that the building owners and managers have taken positive steps to promote effective management to improve the health of the community, and the quality of life for residents by developing an environment where crime cannot flourish.


Three Steps to Success

What You Will Learn

  1. Prevention & Applicant Screening
    • How code compliance can protect your rights as a rental property owner and manager
    • The benefits of applicant screening
    • Tips to strengthen rental agreements
    • How to become a proactive rental property manager
    • How to maintain a safe and healthy environment for residents
  2. Drug Nuisance Abatement
    • Warning signs of illegal drug activity
    • Actions you must take if you discover illegal activities on the rental property
    • Crisis resolution and eviction process
    • The role of the RCMP

Successful completion of these three steps results in an apartment community being fully certified in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program. The property will then be able to display the CFMH sign and to use the CFMH logo in its rental advertising.

Regular reviews and annual re-certification ensure that the certified apartment community continues to meet the CFMH program requirements.
