Kathleen Wynne and the Liberal Government of Ontario are set to announce some new laws on Rent Control, but only for buildings built after 1991. ACORN members know that we need REAL Rent Control that stops unfair Above Guideline Increases and puts Rent Control on the units, not just the lease.
The Province of Ontario is in the midst of a housing crisis. With rents rising in Toronto every year something REAL must be done to make renting a home possible for hard working people.
By signing this you are joining our call for the Kathleen Wynne Liberals to instate real rent control laws in Ontario that:
- Puts rent control on units, not on leases.
- Ends all above the guideline rent increases
- Includes every rental building in Ontario
Ottawa ACORN members want a landlord licensing program similar to how restaurants are licensed or Toronto’s Rent Safe Program.

Ontario ACORN is organizing to increase the thresholds for clawbacks and assets for ODSP and OW recipients. The government of Ontario could raise thousands of people out of poverty if they would only change the rules around what we are allowed to keep without even raising the budget! Let us keep our money! * ACORN Ontario s’organise pour faire augmenter le seuil de la récupération de revenu et les limites de l’avoir pour les bénéficiaires de POSPH et OT.

Laissez-nous garder notre argent!
Millions of Canadians are excluded from the mainstream banking sector, giving rise to a growing predatory lending industry. That’s why ACORN Canada is fighting for Fair Banking (including Postal Banking). We want the federal government to legislate the Canadian banking sector to stop pushing low and moderate income families to predatory banking services.
The City of Toronto is currently looking into regulating landlords through a licensing regime to enforce maintenance standards. It is critically important that the City hears from YOU how important it is that apartments are well maintained for the health and safety of tenants!
