Tenants and Landlords

The Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) was created by the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) which gives residential landlords and tenants rights and responsibilities and sets out a process for enforcing them.

The role of the LTB is to:

  • resolve disputes between landlords and tenants through mediation or adjudication
  • resolve eviction applications from co-ops
  • provide information to landlords and tenants about their rights and responsibilities under the RTA

This information can also be found on the Landlord & Tenant Board website of the Ontario government.
