Add your name: Don't slash tenant rights

Don't make it easier for landlords to evict tenants, stop the Bailiff Act.

Why is this important?

The Ford government just announced its plans to make it easier and faster for landlords to evict tenants. They’re going to shorten the period for eviction notices and allow private “bailiffs” to boot people from their homes -- to “boost rental supply”.

This is dangerous. Landlords already illegally evict tenants through “renovictions” and false claims -- all to drive their own profits. [1]

Making it easier for landlords to unfairly evict tenants makes housing insecure and will leave renters vulnerable -- especially in places like Toronto, where with only 1% of rentals vacant, finding a new place to live could be next to impossible. [2]

Secure housing should be a right, and landlords shouldn’t have more power to pull housing rugs out from under tenants. For now, these plans are only plans, but we’ve seen the lightning speed that Ford can dismantle the things that keep us safe.

Legislature resumes in over a week, and they could drop this legislation ASAP, so we need to act fast. Will you add your name now to stand up for tenants’ rights?
