Funding Restored for Tenants Defence Fund

The City’s Outreach and Organizing Program helps tenant groups to organize and prepare for hearings at the Landlord and Tenant Board for rent increase disputes, or at the Ontario Municipal Board for demolitions and condo conversion matters. Unfortunately this program was cut a few years ago, leaving many tenants without effective representation. After several years of hard work to restore funding, I successfully moved a motion to renew this program as part of the 2014 Budget to help ensure that renters are protected against unfair rent increases.
