Healthy Homes - Habitation saine

Every person deserves affordable, livable housing. In many low income neighbourhoods, tenants live with mold, pests, broken elevators, and other challenges because landlords will not do the repairs needed. ACORN Canada members fight for landlord licensing, building inspections, and stronger enforcement of maintenance rules and by-laws.

Ottawa ACORN: Wins Council Vote For Appliance By-Law Sept. 19 2013

Ottawa ACORN members stuck it out for three and half hours yesterday at the Community and Protective Services Committee at city hall to ensure our by-law passed. It was a unanimous committee vote. Our by-law is to ensure landlords maintain appliances provided for tenants such as fridges, stoves, laundry facilities, etc. The decision will go to a full council vote (date TBA). Leaders Sadio Ali, Amina Hassan and Blaine Cameron did a great job explaining the by-law and demonstrating the issue.
