RE: Eviction Enforcement Resumes in 27 Ontario Regions

On February 16, 2021, the government announced that residential eviction enforcement will resume in 27 public health unit regions:

Niagara Region Public Health
Chatham-Kent Public Health
City of Hamilton Public Health Services
Durham Region Health Department
Halton Region Public Health
Middlesex-London Health Unit
Region of Waterloo Public Health and Emergency Services
Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit
Southwestern Public Health
Thunder Bay District Health Unit
Wellington-Dufferin Guelph Public Health
Windsor-Essex County Health Unit
Brant County Health Unit
Eastern Ontario Health Unit
Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit
Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit
Huron Perth Public Health
Lambton Public Health
Ottawa Public Health
Porcupine Health Unit
Public Health Sudbury and Districts
Algoma Public Health
Grey Bruce Health Unit
Northwestern Health Unit
Peterborough Public Health
Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit
Timiskaming Health Unit.

The Court Enforcement Office (Sheriff) may enforce all Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) eviction orders in these 27 regions and the previously announced three regions that are no longer subject to the Stay-at-Home order. To find out which public health unit your rental unit is located in, enter the postal code in the Ministry of Health’s Public Health Unit Locator.

In all other regions of the province, previously announced restrictions on enforcement of LTB evictions orders by the Sheriff remain in effect. In those regions, the Sheriff cannot enforce an LTB eviction order unless the order asks the Sheriff to expedite the enforcement. If you believe the LTB should request an expedited eviction, please raise the issue at your hearing.

The government may make further changes to the list of public health unit regions subject to these restrictions in the weeks to come.

The LTB continues 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.

Please continue to refer to our website for operational updates. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
