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

GUEST SPEAKER: Joeita Gupta

Joeita Gupta is the Administrator of the Toronto Tenant School for the Federation of Metro Tenants’ Associations (FMTA). She also serves as the Outreach and Organizing Administrative Assistant for the FMTA.
