Overview Residential Tenancy Law in Canada is governed by the provinces, like that of other provinces. Ontario Residential Tenancy law is defined by a basic piece of legislation, The Residential Tenancies Act (the “RTA”) that outlines the rights and obligations of landlords and tenants. It also provides for an unbiased administrative forum to deal with disputes. The 2016 Census list the Ontario Renters market at 1,559,720 tenants therefore, paralegals are the go-to legal representatives for many when it comes to landlord and tenant matters. For this reason, the OPA’s first CPD of 2020 will explore the RTA and the Landlord and Tenant Board.
