Mission

The Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations (FMTA) is a non-profit Organization which advocates for better rights for Tenants. Founded in 1974, we are the oldest and largest Tenant Federation in Canada. The FMTA is comprised of affiliated Tenant Associations and of individual Members. We have over 3,000 members and continue to grow.

Rent Increase Guideline for 2011 is 0.7%

The Ontario Annual Guideline amount for 2011 has been set at 0.7%.

This means that your landlord cannot increase your rent in 2011 by more than 0.7%. So, for example, if you rent is $1000 per month, the maximum your landlord can increase it to is $1007. Your landlord must give you 90 days written notice to raise it.

Special Announcement!!!!

Join the FMTA in making sure the HST doesn't hurt tenants!

The Ontario government has announced plans to ensure landlords can't apply for Above Guideline rent increases because of the HST.  This is good news for tenants, BUT the public has until MAY 27th to comment on proposed changes meaning they could still give in to pressure from landlords.  Check out the attached resource and make sure tenant voices are heard on this issue!
