Reporting to the Housing & Facilities Manager, the Tenant Relations Officer is the front-line liaison position between the Department and all tenants residing in TH rental housing units.  This incumbent is responsible for developing and maintaining good relations with tenants, for informing tenants of the full cost of rental housing, and that minimizing costly repairs and damage is critical to prevent corresponding rent increases, for explaining requirements under Tenancy Agreements, Housing Policies and the Yukon Residential Landlord and Tenants Act, for effective ongoing communications and for scheduling annual required inspections and unit condition assessments. The position serves as a neutral office for tenants to relay concerns or complaints and helps identify the needs of individual tenants and assisting in connecting them to supporting programs and services. The incumbent assists tenants with completing necessary forms and applications, and/or seeking other housing options.
