Affordable Housing in Ontarioimmediately prioritize the repair of Ontario’s social housing stock, commit to building new affordable homes, crack down on housing speculators, and make rentals more affordable through rent controls and updated legislation.

Real Rent Control Nowpass Rent Stabilization legislation to establish: rent control that operates during and between tenancies, so a new tenant pays the same rent as a former tenant, with allowable annual rent increases calculated by the Government of Ontario and based on annual inflation; implement a public rent registry so tenants can find out what a former tenant paid in rent; ensure access to legal aid for tenants that want to contest an illegal rent hike; and implement stronger enforcement and tougher penalties for landlords who do not properly maintain a renters’ home.
