The Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario (ACTO) works to better the housing situation of Ontario residents who have low incomes including tenants, co-op members and people who are homeless. ACTO achieves this through:
- test case litigation;
- lobbying and law reform;
- housing policy work;
- community organizing; and,
- public legal education.
ACTO works with legal clinics, tenant associations and other groups and individuals concerned about housing issues. ACTO is funded by Legal Aid Ontario and has been in existence since September, 2001.
The Tenant Duty Counsel Program ("TDCP") is a program of ACTO. It provides information and limited legal assistance to eligible tenants appearing at the Landlord and Tenant Board.
This section of the ACTO web site is a private area provided for the benefit of duty counsel, and is only available in English.
