The new Ontario government is re-introducing legislation today that, if passed, would make it easier to resolve co-op housing disputes.
Currently, all co-op disputes must go through the courts, which can be costly and time consuming. Under the proposed legislation, co-ops would be able to apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board to resolve tenure disputes that are now covered by the Residential Tenancies Act.
This would give co-op providers and residents many of the same protections and benefits available to landlords and tenants, including access to mediation services.
Making co-op dispute resolution more efficient, cost effective and transparent is part of The Way Forward to ensure that families have a safe, secure and affordable place to live.
