This new online tool for KRPOA members will be a great opportunity to engage with other members. Of course, with everything in our lives, there are some rules that we ask everyone to follow to ensure peace and civility. Membership: Membership to this Online Discussion Board is only for members of KRPOA – Kingston Rental Property Owners Association. Be Kind and Courteous: We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. We come to this group with different experiences and personalities which may shape our opinions and knowledge. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required, let's maintain a good discourse. No Hate Speech or Bullying: No Bullying/Intolerant comment regarding race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, receipt of social assistance (OW/ODSP) or any other Ontario Human Rights Commission Code Grounds. ‘Bad Tenant’ Lists will not be shared through this Group: We’ve all had good and bad experienced with tenants. Sharing names or other identifying information about tenants through this group is not permitted. Sharing of a “Bad Tenant List” contravenes several subsections of PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) and will not be tolerated. These types of posts or comments will be deleted. No Naming and Shaming: Please don't post screenshots, photos, pictures, or share posts into our group unless you have taken the time to remove all of the people/group names beforehand. We will not allow what we consider naming and shaming posts or comments. Any such posts or comments will be removed immediately. No Self Promotions or Spam: Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren't allowed. Spam advertising of your available units or personal business is not permitted. Respect Everyone's Privacy: Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What's shared in the group should stay in the group, but please remember that anything shared on the Internet is there forever, so we ask you to be mindful of what you post and what you share. We do not condone or allow advice that is illegal: Much like illegal screening practices, we do not condone or allow advice that is illegal from our membership. Posts that advocate disregarding RTA, LTB rules/guidelines, OHRC, local bylaws, criminal code etc. will be deleted. This group does not provide any legal advice. We encourage all of our members to seek proper legal counsel about your specific situation. All comments and conversations in this group are for informational purposes only, to promote networking, building relationships, and promoting meaningful discussing among members.
