Tenants resources
Landlord/tenant laws and legislation vary quite a bit across the country, and each individual province/territory has its own set of terms you should familiarize yourself with if you plan to rent. It’s important that both landlords and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities to make sure that everyone involved in the rental arrangement is happy. So, read on! (And remember, Lifeasarenter.ca doesn’t offer legal advice, so if you find yourself in a sticky situation, you should definitely contact your local rental authority or a lawyer)
