The Rent Stabilization Act: Pay what the last tenant paid
Average rent in Ottawa increased 13.5% from 2018-2019, the highest rate of increase in any Canadian city while the average monthly rent in Ontario is now over $2,000. Nearly half of Ontarians pay unaffordable rental housing costs, meaning they spend more than a third of their income on rent.
Ontarians are being squeezed, and it's harder and harder for families to find an affordable home to rent that meets their needs.
But the Ontario NDP is going to put a stop to it. We will close loopholes and stop skyrocketing rent with the Rent Stabilization Act, sponsored by MPPs Joel Harden, Bhutila Karpoche, Jessica Bell and Terence Kernaghan.
