RE: Announcement on Temporary Pause Evictions

Today, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing announced a temporary residential evictions moratorium effective January 14, 2021 during the provincial declaration of emergency and while the stay-at-home-order is in force.

At this time, the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) will continue to hold hearings for all types of applications and issue orders, including orders for evictions. This will help ensure that tenants and landlords seeking resolution from the LTB are provided access to justice with minimal service delays.

The LTB will continue to conduct hearings by videoconference, phone or in writing to protect the health and safety of Ontarians.

As set out in regulation, most eviction orders will not be enforced by the Court Enforcement Office (Sheriff’s Office) while in effect.

We continue to encourage landlords and tenants to work together to resolve their disputes during this challenging time.

The LTB is carefully monitoring the situation and operational changes, if any, will be posted to our website.

We are open to and welcome your feedback as we value your perspective on landlord and tenant matters. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

We remain committed to providing fair, effective and timely access to justice.

Sincerely,
