Rent Increase Guideline

The Ontario Government has set the rent increase guideline at 1.8% for 2009.

This is the maximum amount a landlord can increase rent for a current tenant, if at least 12 months have passed since the move in date. A landlord must give at least 90 days written notice to tenants before enforcing the rent increase.

This amount does not apply if you are renting to new tenants or those not covered by the Residential Tenancies Act.
