Tell Premier Wynne and Minister Ballard: Close the post-1991 Rent Loophole
** UPDATE: we got word today the government is making an announcement on this and other measures tomorrow (Apr 20th). It's looking good, but we need to be sure. Please consider signing and sharing right now. **
In 1997 the Ontario PC government exempted rental units built after 1991 from rent control. They said the new loophole would lead to a wave of new rental housing construction. That didn’t happen. Instead, many renters have simply been crushed by price gouging and a lack of rental security.
Sign the petition:
“Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Housing Chris Ballard,
The arbitrary and outdated post-1991 rent loophole is crushing renters by price gouging and a lack of rental security. It’s time to act. When you table the rent control legislation you’ve promised, close the loophole.”
