Rent Control eliminated for new buildings

Rent Control eliminated for new buildings

New legislation by Ontario Government. Rent Control continues for residential units occupied before November 15, 2018. Landlord is still allowed a basic rent increase and an AGI (above guideline increase) in rent.

New rental units will not be subject to rent control.

Pro of the new policy: Eliminating rent control for new buildings may encourage builders to produce more rental housing. Landlords can make more money! [But why build an apartment when you can build and sell a condo today?]

Con: Tenants moving into new builds will have no rent control from year to year.

Tenants must continue to organize and speak out to protect themselves.

Leadnow.ca: In a democracy, governments depend on the support of those they govern to stay in power.  Let the Ontario Government know that you do not support weakening your protection in order to help the businesses that own your home. Contact your MPP and let them know. You can also sign a petition to Tell Doug Ford: no unlimited rent increases

Ontario Government: Give feedback (pro or con) directly to the Government through a survey, consultation.  //www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page20902.aspx deadline is January 25th, 2019.

ACORN.ca Make sure the City and Province knows what tenants think!
