General Discussion

This section is for general discussions on any topic (while still remembering to post questions regarding tenant problems in their appropriate "Common Tenant Problems" areas).


Questions not Covered Here?

If you have questions about your rights as a renter or are having problems with your landlord, then there are several terrific sources of reliable information available:
  • The Federation of Metro Tenant Associations (FMTA) is a renter advocacy organisation here in Toronto that has many experts who can answer your questions either by telephone (416-921-9494), postal-mail, or e-mail (hotline@torontotenants.org).

  • If you have questions about hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB), either because you or your landlord has scheduled a hearing or you are considering filing a complaint (“tenant application”) at the LTB, there are lawyers and community legal workers who can help. There is no cost for their service. These Tenant Duty Counsel advisors are available at most LTB offices (COVID permitting), and are also available to speak with by telephone.

  • You can also speak with a layer at your local Community Legal Clinic (CLC) office. Your local CLC can provide you with legal advice or connect you with legal representation. Each CLC office services a specific area of the city; check their webpage for more information. It is usually best to visit during one of their “Drop In” times, if they have them. You can try telephoning, but these are busy offices, so it is usually faster to drop in than to call. You can find the CLC office that services your area by following this link.

Landlord and Tenant Board is in a total state of crisis
« on: August 25, 2022, 09:12:38 am »

Doug Ford's conservatives have been underfunding the LTB for years, and have deliberately suspended appointing new adjudicators (judges), hobbling the system.  Having created the crisis, my guess is that their next step is going to be to bring in a new even more "efficient" system further slanted against tenants.  In the meanwhile, these "online proceedings" have been imposed upon us, that are very unfair to a majority of renters.

Here's an article in BlogTO:
