Evictions and Rent Freeze

Evictions are now being processed at the Landlord and Tenant Board, and Sheriffs may enforce eviction orders from the LTB. If you have questions about this, please contact my community office.

No rent increases to existing tenants are allowed during 2021 unless they are approved by the Landlord and Tenant Board. If you have questions about any notice that you have received from your landlord, please contact my community office.

In light of the government ending the moratorium on evictions and making it easier for landlords to evict tenants through new legislation, Community Legal Education Ontario has updated information about evictions on their Steps to Justice website. In addition, the Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario has published a blog post that outlines the changes contained in Bill 184.

It is important to know that as always, landlords are still not allowed to evict tenants on their own. They must get an order from the LTB and have the Sheriff enforce it.
