New Hotline Hours and Service

We're excited to let you know that you can now reach our telephone hotline service on weekends.  We've got staff available to take calls and answer questions on Saturdays.  You can read our updated hours on our hotline page: https://www.torontotenants.org/hotline

We've also changed from a "hotline" service to an expanded "infohub" service, meaning that in addition to reaching us on the phone you can also connect with us over email ([email protected]) or social media (FacebookTwitter and Instagram).

  • Purchasers Own Use evictions (N12)
  • Renovictions, demolition and conversion evictions (N13)
  • Building-wide Loss of services (landlord removing parking, storage, etc)
  • Building wide maintenance issues
  • Previous AGI's that have expired

In addition, the Outreach team is now able to help with or provide:

  • Tenant Association organizing
  • Monthly general educational workshops on tenant rights

New Tenant Association Fund

Part of our new services also include a small annual fund (approx $8K) to help tenant associations with various out of pocket expenses for their operation.
