If you or someone you know is facing an Above Guideline Rent Increase then we strongly suggest that you read this document: So You Just Received your first Above Guideline Rent Increase; this short document explains everything you need to know to get up to speed.

News Article about Above the Guideline Rent Increases
« on: September 02, 2022, 11:21:56 am »

An article written by Jenna Moon was recently published in the Toront Star about landlords (and especially corporate landlords) abusing the "Above Guideline Rent Increase" process to unfairly hike rents:

Toronto Star:  Concern is growing that landlords are using ‘above guideline increases’ to raise rents far above the yearly cap

This article also appeares in the Hamilton Stectator, which I believe is not hidden behind a pay-wall.

Unfortunately both articles are paywalled and can't be read.

You can use the website to archive paywalled articles so they can be seen by non subscribers.

You just paste the website address into the red box on the page. Archiving takes a few minutes as the elements of the page are saved. You will see lines of text and web addresses, then once the archive is complete you'll see your website. Copy/paste the URL of the archived site into your post and people should be able to view it without the paywall.

Here's an example of an archived article about the Queen's favourite horse -
