Our friends over at the FMTA are asking renters to sign a petition in support of restoring rent control to all Ontario renters (returning things to as they were before Doug Ford's Conservative government removed rent control for some renters).  We strongly encourage all Ontario renters to sign the petition, to protect ourselves and all renters from egregious rent increases, and from Doug Ford's chipping away and watering down of rent control.  Please take a moment to protect your and our ability to afford to stay in our homes!

Friend --

A couple of Tenants in Toronto were given a whopping $7000 monthly increase, from $2500 to $9500!!

How did this happen?

Because Ford made it legal.

In 2018 Doug Ford removed all rent control on new buildings built after November, 2018 which allows landlords to raise the rent to any amount they want. 

Does that mean a landlord could raise rent by $1 million?

It's hard to believe, but yes, he's actually made that legal.

What can be done about this?

Demand the current Provincial Ford Government bring back rent control to all units!

Sign a petition from these tenants for better rent control:

Support this law from these tenants' MPP on improving rent control
