Bill 184 and RenovictionsTO

Provincial Bill 184: Protecting Tenants and Strengthening Community Housing Act, 2020 

Bill 184 was introduced in the Provincial Legislature on March 12, 2020. With very little notice or debate, it passed and received Royal Assent on July 21, 2020. Bill 184 makes sweeping changes to the Residential Tenancy Act, 2006 (RTA).  These changes include rules around evictions before the Landlord Tenant Board (LTB);  collection of rent debts by the LTB and not Small Claims Court;  Renovictions; Bad Faith applications; and maintenance and repair disputes.  

RenovictionsTO

To understand how landlords want to renovate old apartments to obtain higher rents  (Renovictions) have affected our City I would direct you to a brand new website: RenovictionsTO where you can view a map of Renovictions across Toronto and East York. Similarly,  you may submit your building so it appears on the map.
