Herongate: The Case for RentSafe Ottawa

Posted October 16, 2019 | Resource Type: Housing / Tenant Unions

Ottawa ACORN’s campaign for a landlord registry similar to Toronto’s RentSafe bylaw is based on over a decade’s worth of community organizing, as well as the countless experiences of our low to moderate income members shared through forums, phone calls and home visits. For the past 13 years, ACORN organizers have gone door-to-door in low-income neighbourhoods, where the state of people’s housing remains their number one concern. ACORN sees the implementation of a landlord registry as an opportunity to address the gaps in our current property standards system; to ensure that everyone’s right to housing is protected and that every tenant has a healthy home.
