About the QRLA
The Quinte Region Landlords Association (QRLA) represents landlords and property managers of all sizes in the Quinte area. The region includes Belleville, Trenton, Prince Edward County, Napanee, and parts of Hastings and Lennox and Addington counties. The QRLA also welcomes landlords from other parts of Ontario who don’t have a local association.
The organization was originally formed as a small group of landlords in the early 2000s to address municipal policies which were of concern to them. Since then, it has steadily grown and today its members collectively manage well over 1000 rental housing units. The association is a respected organization and sought regularly by government, industry, media and the public for input and commentary on housing.
The association’s focus is on providing education, tools and resources to its members so they may be successful housing providers. Standing up for landlord interests and speaking up to governments of all levels is part of the QRLA’s ongoing advocacy work. To this end, the QRLA works cooperatively with other landlord associations across Ontario on various advocacy initiatives. The association is a member of the Affordable Housing Providers of Ontario (AHPO) which is an alliance of regional landlord associations. The QRLA also stays in communication with and supports the efforts of larger organizations such as FRPO and CFAA.
While the QRLA represents landlords, it takes a broader view and strives to be a positive force for the wellbeing of tenants and the community. The association encourages its members to look after their tenants through fair dealings and providing safe, quality housing. It has developed relationships with local governments and social service agencies in an effort to avoid unnecessary evictions and prevent increased homelessness.
