When looking at the Rental Fairness Act in Ontario, it’s important to remember:
5.1 (1) This Act does not apply with respect to living accommodation provided to a person as part of a program described in subsection (2) if the person and the provider of the living accommodation have entered into a written agreement that complies with subsection (3).
This act affects approximately 1.35 million households in Ontario. The government worked with this group, along with landlords and housing experts, to develop legislation that is fair and balanced.
