The FMTA (Federation of Metro Tenants’ Association) has initiated a petition for the Government of Ontario to ban all evictions. Details are below:

Petition: We Need A Real Eviction Ban Now

Yesterday, the Provincial government announced they have temporarily suspended evictions.

We know that many tenants in Ontario are struggling and wanted you to know as soon as possible to help reduce stress and worry.

Unfortunately, the ban is not a complete one – landlords can still give eviction notices, while the Landlord and Tenant Board will continue to hold hearings and issue eviction orders. 

Evictions spread COVID. Unless we get a real eviction ban and rent relief for tenants, people will continue to be evicted and COVID will continue to kill.  

Please sign our petition calling on the government to implement a real eviction ban. Lives are at stake.

The provincial government is trying to pass legislation that will make it easier to evict tenants. It will turn the Landlord Tenant Board into a debt collection agency where landlords can chase tenants for rent and utilities payments they are unable to make for reasons such as financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FMTA opposes Bill 184 because it contains measures that will deprive tenants of a key safety net which protects them from eviction. This will be catastrophic for tenants who cannot pay their rent because of COVID-19, or for any other legitimate reason now and into the future.

Read the FMTAs full statement on Bill 184 and learn how to Depute for the Bill at the Standing Committee:

(Please share this with renters who have difficulties meeting rental payments due to the financial hardships caused by the COVID-19)
