Law Reform & Advocacy

In consultation with legal aid clinics and tenant/housing advocacy groups, ACTO is setting priorities for the law reform and advocacy work that will have a broad impact on the housing issues facing low-income tenants, co-op members and homeless persons.

ACTO's work in this area includes:

  • seeking legislative amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act to ensure justice for tenants
  • advocacy with all levels of government to preserve existing rental housing supply and to build new, affordable rental housing
  • seeking fair treatment for tenants before the Landlord & Tenant Board.
  • joint action with social justice and housing advocacy groups for a long term solution to homelessness
