Recently proposed amendments to the Residential Tenancies Act would further disadvantage tenants who are pet-owners and animal lovers and goes a long way in demonstrating the government’s lack of compassion and care for animals.
The government is looking into legalizing previously invalid “no Pet” provisions in leases and tenancy agreements in an attempt to boost the supply of rental housing.
This will likely create greater barriers to finding and keeping housing for tenants who would like to keep a pet.
