Formed in 1981, the Kingston Rental Property Owners Association brings together landlords in the Kingston community to promote local and provincial advocacy, peer networking, education on laws and regulations, and to provide an opportunity to share valuable resources and support best practices.
Membership is open to landlords, property managers, superintendents, as well as professionals and vendors who supply services to the rental property community.
KRPOA member benefits include:
8 monthly dinner meetings (Zoom & In-person) that feature interesting and informative guest speakers and the opportunity to network with fellow landlords and suppliers
Access to rental specific forms including a lease addendum (available for members on our Resource Page)
Member discounts at area businesses
We DO NOT carry a list of "bad tenants". You can view public LTB court cases here: https://www.canlii.org
The KRPOA is fully managed by a volunteer board consisting entirely of local rental property owners and managers. Board membership is a two-year term. Interested in joining the Board? Contact us!
President (1) - Robert Melo
You are welcome to participate and join in the rewarding experience of being a volunteer too. Our members have demonstrated their willingness to mentor, coach and share what has worked and what hasn’t, and we're always looking for new perspectives and ideas.
For more information about joining the Board, please contact us.
Our formal meetings take place on the last Tuesday of every month (Jan-May; Sep-Nov) and there are networking social meetings via Zoom scheduled for the last Tuesday of June, July & August.
Meetings are blended - offered both in-person and virtually via Zoom.
As a result of cancelled meetings in 2020, all 2020 KRPOA members automatically become 2021 members at no additional cost.
UPDATE NUISANCE PARTY BY-LAW
The City of Kingston has outlined the amendments to the city's Nuisance Party By-Law during one day of public webinars and a meeting with our association on April 26, 2022. A new report will be brought to council in June (date TBA). Until that time, all rental property owners are encouraged to reach out to city staff and councillors to voice concerns.
Please find more information in the presentation and proposed amendment documents below.

Response to Report 22-070 -
Bylaw Number 2018-53 ‘A By-Law to Regulate Nuisance Parties within the City of Kingston’
City council will look at expanding its nuisance party bylaw next week that would shift some of the cost of dealing with nuisance parties to landlords.
To all rental property owners and managers, please consider contacting the Mayor (email@example.com) and your City Councillor (contact info can be found at https://www.cityofkingston.ca/city-hall/city-council/mayor-and-council) prior to council deliberations on Report 22-070 on February 15th.
