Proposed changes to the Residential Tenancies Act, Ontario’s landlord and tenant law

The government has announced it will be introducing a bill in the legislature that, if passed, would change the Residential Tenancies Act. Proposed changes include extending rent control to some units that were previously exempt. The proposed changes will only become law if the bill passes final reading in the legislature and is signed by the Lieutenant Governor. More information is available in the Ministry of Housing backgrounder: Making Housing More Affordable.

The Landlord and Tenant Board does not have any further information ‎at this time.
