A Guide to Tenancy in Ontario


As Vincentians, you may encounter neighbours who face problems with their housing as tenants.

We have prepared an information sheet that provides an overview of tenant rights with respect to leases, rental payments, rent increases, evictions, maintenance, human rights, and privacy. It also addresses some tenant responsibilities. We encourage you to review this material so that you can spot common tenancy issues and refer neighbours to their local community legal clinic or other support centres for more help.
