We need action from our provincial government to help everyday people and families get through the COVID-19 pandemic. That needs to include help for people to pay their bills and keep a roof over their head. Allowing rent to go unpaid for months hurts both landlords and tenants, who won’t be able to afford four months of back-rent at the end of the pandemic.
Provinces across the country have provided direct funds to fill the gaps, but Ontario has not. We are calling on Doug Ford to:
- Create a 80 per cent rent subsidy for people up to $2,500 per month
- Freeze utility payments
- Push for a federal moratorium on mortgage foreclosures
