Landlord and Tenant Board Telephone Hearings Halted

The FMTA, Advocacy Centre for Tenants of Ontario (ACTO) and the Tenant Duty Counsel Program scored a victory this month when the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) halted telephone hearings in the Southwest region of Ontario.

Members of the FMTA had previously met with the Landlord and Tenant Board in the past months to try to put a stop to the so called "60 Second Eviction" which can take place with a telephone hearing.

ACTO launched a campaign this June to have the telephone hearing pilot project halted instead of continued or expanded. The LTB halted the program at the end of June pending an evaluation.
