Ontario Day of Action for FULL Rent Control – July 11th

Ontario ACORN members are organizing local actions in 5 cities across the province in protest of Above-Guideline-Increases in rent (AGIs), renovictions and skyrocketing rents. ACORN is demanding the Ontario Government protect affordable housing, and stop placating for-profit corporate developers and their desire for maximum profits. 

ACORN is calling on the Province to: 

1. Expand Rent Control to ALL buildings, not just those built prior to 2018 

2. Introduce Vacancy Control to stop exorbitant rent increases between tenants 

3. Ban AGIs
