In Ontario, Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 covers the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and tenant.

We represent both landlords and tenants

Both landlord and tenant are required to follow the law. If they have problems or disagreements, the landlord and tenant should first discuss the issue and attempt to resolve it. If the landlord or tenant feels that the other is not obeying the law, they should contact Ontario Legal Pool for information about their rights and responsibilities.

Landlords are required to have a tenancy agreement in place

The tenancy agreement (or lease) is required for tenancies entered into on April 30, 2018 or later. It does not apply to care homes, sites in mobile home parks and land lease communities, most social housing, certain other special tenancies or co-operative housing. Residential tenancies in Ontario are governed by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006. This agreement cannot take away a right or responsibility under the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006. Under the Ontario Human Rights Code, everyone has the right to equal treatment in housing without discrimination or harassment.
