The Province has released the latest guideline amount for 2012. Landlords will be able to raise rents by 3.1% next year. The FMTA was able to talk about the impact on tenants in CTV.ca, The Toronto Star, CBC and the Hamilton Spec.
Finally, over 150 tenants made deputations to City Hall regarding proposed cuts to, among other things, the Affordable Housing Office and a host of community services. FMTA board members spoke passionately as to how those cuts could affect tenants.
