Stop the loss - Private Sector
Create municipal policies strengthening tenant protections against renovictions and demovictions.
As part of a larger landlord licensing requirement, these policies would strengthen enforcement of existing renoviction and demoviction bylaws.
These policies would include the following conditions:
- The landlord must have received approval of all permits with the City in advance of issuing a notice to tenants of renoviction or demoviction.
- The City would be responsible for providing information to tenants on their legal right to compensation.
- Ensure tenants who are temporarily displaced during renovations or demolitions are re-housed at the same rate of rent, similar to the Toronto Demolition Control Bylaw.
