Promise History

1.12.02 - “When it comes to rent control, we’re going to maintain the status quo”


“The Ontario Government says it is lifting rent control on new buildings, in an effort [to] […] open up the rental market. The new measure applies to units ‘if no part of the building, mobile home park or land lease community, or no part of the addition, was occupied for residential purposes on or before November 15, 2018.’ [Ontario Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, and Chair of Cabinet] Vic Fedeli stressed the move only applies to ‘new builds.’ ‘To be very, very clear, existing buildings continue to have their rent controlled, this is for new builds and I would expect that buildings that are started fresh,’ he said. ‘Everybody who is an existing tenant today is protected,’ he said.”
