Webinar for frontline workers on tenants’ rights during COVID-19

Recorded on August 4, 2020

IMPORTANT UPDATE: August 4, 2020

Starting on August 4, 2020, evictions can be enforced again in Ontario. Any eviction order issued by the Landlord and Tenant Board can now be filed with the Sheriff and they will enforce it by changing the locks if the tenant has not moved before they come. At the time of recording this webinar, the Ontario government had ordered that eviction orders could not be enforced as a result of the pandemic.
