Landlords can no longer evict tenants without begins

Ontario tenants will have additional protection from eviction starting Friday; when a landlord ends a tenancy to have family members move in, people evicted must receive compensation.

Ontario tenants will have more protection from eviction starting Friday.

That’s when new measures aimed at stopping landlords from turfing people from their rental units will take effect.

Effective Friday, when a landlord ends a tenancy to have family members move in, people evicted must receive compensation.

“When a tenant is evicted through no fault of their own, they are forced to scramble to find new accommodations and cover the costs of a sudden move,” Housing Minister Peter Milczyn said in a statement.

Landlords will have to pay one month’s rent to the evicted tenant or offer him or her another comparable rental unit.

There will also be a new measure in place to ensure that an apartment isn’t vacated, ostensibly for a relative, and, less than one year later, rented out to someone else.

“If the landlord advertises, re-rents or demolishes/converts the unit within one year, she or he will be considered to have acted in bad faith, unless they can prove otherwise and could face a fine of up to $25,000,” the government says.

“The new measures will help protect tenants by discouraging landlords from unlawfully evicting them, whether for conversion of the unit into a short-term rental or immediately re-renting it at a higher rate.”

AFAIK, This will lead more landlords to choose BNB concept instead of renting out units to tenant on permanent basis.

IMO, Current government is trying all efforts to get maximum supports and votes from immigrants for upcoming election.....;) ;)

There are people who are trying to sell their investment property after asking their tenant to move out and their houses are sitting vacant for months since home sales have slowed down in Kitchener area. If the home owners convert it back to rental unit, not sure what the rules say. It is unclear from the article why there is a compensation clause and a fine clause as well.

You should see the Desis in Brampton and Surrey. 15 people living in one detached house :cry:

Illegal rental basements, tenants all over the place. Cars parked on the lawn. Basically ghetto houses and slum houses.

This is interesting. However as most immigration may still remain ignorant and choose to neglect what law says. The tenant being a new immigrant may have other priorities, such as jobs, and may focus on that. As there are so many rental options, it should be easier for them.
