For the second time in a year in Ontario, there is an “eviction freeze”, stopping landlords from evicting most tenants during the current COVID-19 state of emergency. This “eviction freeze” ends when the stay-at-home order ends. The stay-at-home order has ended on June 2, 2021, but how will this affect renters’ rights? In light of this, in this workshop, we will discuss:
How and when eviction freezes apply
How renters’ rights have been affected by COVID-19
The protections available to renters with informal rent agreements
