Too many Torontonians live in homes that have mold, pests, appliances that don’t work, and inadequate heat. That’s why, as part of the RentSafe program, Council approved an apartment rating system similar to the City's "Dinesafe" program that required landlords to post a colour-coded sign that displays the City's rating.
Unfortunately, in 2020 landlord lobbyists convinced council to eliminate these signs even though they are supported by 80%-90% of tenants.
Colour-coded signs act as an incentive for landlords to do necessary repairs and raise awareness among tenants that they have a right to a safe and healthy home.
We're trying to get them back and we need your help!
