PET POLICY MESSAGE FROM THE LESSER SLAVE LAKE REGIONAL HOUSING AUTHORITY
Lesser Slave Lake Regional Housing Authority (LSLRHA) has had a long standing no pet policy within our social housing portfolio. After the fire, the LSLRHA office requested that any original leases be brought forward. At that time, no leases were brought forward. New leases were signed with all tenants with a clear understanding of no pets. The Lesser Slave Lake Regional Housing Authority Board unanimously supports the no pet policy as it is written and as it is signed in our lease.
