1. Strengthen Tenant Protections

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.
