Manufactured Home Community on Indian Land not Governed by Province

When the rent for a manufactured home (MH) in an MH Community on land owned by the Sechelt Indian Band rose from $6,500 a year to $24,000, a dispute resolution officer said the increase violated British Columbia’s Manufactured Home Park Tenancy Act (MHPTA). Although the Band subsequently staggered the increase over five years to eventually reach $18,000, British Columbia’s highest court ruled province government has no jurisdiction over Indian land, that is a matter for the federal government. MHProNews learned from firstperspective , the newspaper for indigenous people in Canada, that therefore, the MHPTA “is constitutionally inapplicable to any landlord and tenant relationship created by lease on Sechelt Lands.”
