What does ITDCBR stand for?

ITDCBR stands for: International Tenants' Day Canberra.

Is International Tenants' Day recognised globally?


International Tenants' Day originated in 1986 when the French tenant organisation CNL proposed a special world day for tenants. The council of the International Union of Tenants agreed, and decided that it coincide with World Habitat Day (the first Monday in October).


On this day throughout the world housing and tenancy issues are promoted and expounded. Issues such as rights for tenants, affordable rental, and tenant participation in all matters related to housing highlight the universality of tenancy.


Each year, events are held across the globe to mark International Tenants’ Day and act as a prompt to tenants to be aware of their rights and for the wider community to be aware of tenancy issues.

The International Union of Tenants' has its own ITD theme each year. For more information about the IUT and to find out about global 2018 events visit their website at
