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.

Tenants rally April 2nd
« on: March 29, 2024, 10:17:06 am »
"No Demovictions" has apparently called a rally in front of City Hall at noon on Tuesday April 2, 2024

Short notice ahead of a scheduled April 5th meeting of the Planning and Housing committee of city council

ND suggests writing letters and having tenants showing up in person or otherwise getting intervenor status and so on - I’m paraphrasing.

If you missed it a couple of M.P.P.'s showed up at the rally esp. Andrea Hazell who mentioned her proposed rent cap (I am paraphrasing - rather than take my word for it a better plan is to look her up at https://andreahazell.onmpp.ca/mpp-hazell-debates-her-bill-the-relief-for-renters-act/)

Again I'm paraphasing so check what other people had to say but the general consensus ahead of Friday's housing committee meeting is that two salaried bureaucrats are impacting the lives of thousands of residents

CP24 broadcast a few minutes of coverage on their 5 p.m. news segment. Link is to a short, crude video clip. I have more, original video on file
