Protests by landlords did NOTHING to stop the change to protect Tenants from predatory landlords.
“A criminal records check. I've been a landlord for 30 years in this city. I’m getting a criminal record check?” property owner Diane Chauvin questioned.
Suck it. Yes you are.
Huge new positive changes starting May 1st across Canada.
Landlords submit to criminal checks and other checks such as if you have ever suffered mental disease or drug/alcohol abuse. Also STD check.
This will help protect Tenants, especially women
All landlords will also have to pay between $1,000 - $10,000 to pay for government criminal and other checks.
