Residential Landlord and Tenant Law (Ontario)
(01 September 2020)

Note 1: EMCPA Order re Evictions
Effective 13 January 2021, under Reg 13/21, 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].

Note 2: 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.
