Updated September 16, 2021
The moratorium on enforcement of residential evictions has been lifted. Eviction enforcement, including outstanding eviction orders, has resumed. We join our colleagues at the Advocacy Centre for Tenants of Ontario in calling for the LTB to pause hearings in order to fix the many Access to Justice issues that virtual hearings have exposed.
Bill 184 has come into Effect
This new bill has important implications for tenants who have fallen behind in rent. In particular, if your landlord wants you to sign a repayment agreement outside of an LTB hearing or mediation, you should seek legal advice before signing. You should consider reasonable proposals, but if the landlord is proposing an unrealistic or unfair payment plan, you could be at serious risk if you sign a plan you cannot follow. It could lead to the termination of your tenancy without notice. See this information sheet from Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario about negotiating repayment plans with your landlord.
