Common Tenant Problems - Evictions

This section is for renters to discuss issues regarding Evictions.
(Note!! Information pertaining to Renovictions is available in its own section of this forum.)

Receiving an eviction notice is serious – you could lose your home. If you have received notice that your landlord is applying to have you evicted, then you should know your rights, learn about the eviction process in Ontario, and make sure to attend the Eviction Hearing that may happen at the Landlord and Tenant Board. These information sources can help you to learn about evictions:

If you are having trouble paying your rent then you may be able to find help from the Toronto Rent Bank. The rent bank provides interest-free loans to qualifying individuals.

Neighbourhood Information Post (NIP) also provides financial help to people in need.

The City of Toronto also has some applicable information here: Get Help Paying for Housing.

Toronto has a "Rent Bank" that offers interest-free loans to people who are behind on their rent.

Here's a link to their website:

Their phone number is: 416-397-7368

There are requirements – you have to qualify.

Apparently there's an "Emergency Rental Deposit Loan Program" too, which helps people get the First and Last Month's Rent (the deposit you pay your landlord when you sign your lease on a new place).
