Residential Landlord and Tenant (Ontario) Legal Guide
(01 September 2020)
Note 1: On 01 September 2020 I updated the non-payment of rent provisions of the RTA to reflect the important COVID-related provisions of the summer of 2020. See Ch.7, s.11: COVID-era Arrears Agreements and Ex Parte Enforcement.
Note 2: EMCPA Order re Evictions [*New at 08 April 2021*]
Effective 08 April 2021 at 12:01am (noon), under Reg 266/21: Residential Evictions [extended by 292/21, 327/21 and 340/21], an order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act provides that no person (ie. the sheriff) shall attend a residential premises to enforce an LTB eviction order or a writ of possession issued by the Superior Court. This rule is excepted where the LTB or the Superior Court orders that the sheriff expedite enforcement [as per Ch.6 for evictions for illegal activities, safety, damage, and substantial interference with reasonable enjoyment]. This order is the same as prior 'stay-at-home' orders (now expired) that applied to different counties earlier in the year, though this current order is now province-wide. It is presently anticipated to last until 02 June 2021. [note current at 13 May 2021]
