Centretown Buzz: Tenants to get more protection from bugs, better notifications - next August

Posted September 18, 2020

They were a reminder to councillors of the importance of the changes, which included a new Rental Housing Property Management Bylaw, and new pest and vermin control regulations. Ottawa ACORN, an advocacy group supporting low- and moderate-income families, organized the demonstration to support the bylaw and call for further changes.
