We need to make evictions during Covid-19 illegal.
While the province has called for a moratorium on evictions during this crisis, and have halted enforcement of evictions, some landlords haven’t got the message and are still intimidating tenants.
More needs to be done to protect tenants during this unprecedented crisis. The province needs to put a legal ban on evictions, lockouts and disconnections — including business tenants — for four months, and a legal ban on threatening to evict or disconnect a tenant’s utilities. Landlords who continue to put the safety of tenants at risk need to face legal consequences.
Add your name to demand Ontario strengthen its support for tenants and make evictions illegal now.
