Tenants' associationsRegion: Ontario Answer # 439
Many rental buildings have tenant associations which work to improve the premises or solve problems that are common to many tenants. Tenants have the right to organize and join a tenants’ association without being harassed or interfered with by the landlord.
If a landlord tries to prevent a tenant from participating in a tenant’s association by subtle or obvious threats or intimidation, the tenant can complain to the Investigation and Enforcement Unit of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, who can investigate the incident and lay charges. A tenant can also apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board for an order against the landlord to stop any interference.
