ACORN releases a New Report on Renovictions

Ontario ACORN releases a New Report on Renovictions, calls on cities to act!



Posted February 28, 2024

Across the province, tenants in Ontario are dealing with predatory corporate landlords who have been evicting long term tenants for no fault of their own by issuing eviction notices for demolitions or major renovations (N13s) or claiming to move back into the unit (N12s). When this happens, tenants are forced into a housing market that is totally unaffordable, often paying hundreds of dollars more in rent or being priced out of their community completely.

The Ontario government could end the renoviction crisis with vacancy control – an extension of rent control to vacant units that would eliminate the financial incentive for landlords to do renovictions in the first place. The Province’s refusal to introduce full rent control is a blatant failure to protect Ontario’s tenants.

That’s why Ontario ACORN is calling on all Ontario cities to enact anti-renoviction bylaws based on the successful policy of New Westminster, BC. Hamilton City Council passed one earlier this year, thanks to the efforts of Hamilton ACORN. Why not other cities?

Today, ACORN released a NEW report that reviews the scale of N12/N13 renovictions happening across the province and in select cities from 2017 to August 2023.

Read the report here.
