Rent Control Changes to the Residential Tenancies Act
Ontario has passed the Rental Fairness Act, 2017 which modifies the Residential Tenancies Act. Rent control now applies to all private rental units, including those first occupied on or after November 1, 1991. Any notices of rent increase given for these units on or after April 20, 2017, must be capped at the rent increase guideline. Notices given before April 20, 2017 are not affected by the changes.
