Protecting Small Landlords, Our Rental Businesses, And Our Tenants

Thanks to our members the message is getting through as Premier Ford stated his support for small residential landlords saying:

“A lot of them aren’t big landlords. They’re just hard-working people that might have a couple units that are trying to survive.”

Our message has been heard.  Loud and Clear.

Ontario Is Reopening Under The Guidance of Premier Ford

Ontario premier Doug Ford said he will announce details for a gradual reopening Ontario next week. He reiterated that the plan to restart the economy will be a slow process that unfolds in phases.

With May 1 approaching, Ontario Premier Doug Ford said today the province is asking the federal government to help with a residential rent relief program.

“Today, I’ll ask the prime minister to work with us on a program for residential tenants,” he said.

His announcement comes on the heels of prime minister Justin Trudeau detailing a program for commercial rent relief that the federal government is implementing in partnership with the provinces. Ford said the commercial rent relief program will cost $900 million.

Ford added that he will “push the federal government” on rent relief.

We’re doing it with businesses, now we need to do it with tenants and landlords for residents,” he added. “A lot of them aren’t big landlords. They’re just hard-working people that might have a couple units that are trying to survive.

He said the federal government has been a “fabulous” partner “but we need more. We need more for residential rent.

The Minister of Housing supports our cause saying “When these families are forced to choose between food and rent, it also impacts Ontario landlords and the stability of our rental housing sector.”

Clark wrote a request to help small residential landlords to the Trudeau government this week.

Your Voice Is Being Heard, Now We Need To Step On The Gas Pedal!

Small landlords have invested their savings and bought rental properties across the province. This has created hundreds of thousands of affordable, high quality rentals all over Ontario.

We need to be protected as we have put our faith into creating high quality rental properties…just like the properties we always wanted to rent!
