The Federation of Metro Tenant’s Associations (FMTA) offers news, resources, and a range of ‘free services‘ to help tenants deal with the serious challenges they experience in this over-priced rental market. Finding affordable rental housing has been more challenging due to the lowest vacancy rates seen in decades and the ongoing economic crisis. FMTA provides good information on how to deal with tenants’ concerns that impact their daily lives. Tenants can seek help from FMTA if the landlord ignores the regulations of the Residential Tenancies Act and does not deal with those concerns in a professional manner.

FMTA Membership – A tenant who has FMTA membership would have access to the FMTA newsletter, events, resources, etc. and help fight for all tenants’ rights.  Optional annual membership is $20 ($5 for seniors, students and the unemployed).  Financial donations are also optional.

You can visit this FMTA link to purchase membership: https://www.torontotenants.org/membership

NOTE – Since FMTA services are free, tenants are not required to take out membership or to make financial donations to receive help if tenant rights are violated by the landlord. Full details of the services offered by FMTA can be accessed at this link: https://www.torontotenants.org/
