Rent Control in Ontario

The Agenda with Steve Paikin - 2017-04-07

In March, NDP MPP Peter Tabuns reignited the perennial debate around rent control by introducing a private member's bill that would expand limits to all units. In the current system, any unit constructed post-1991 is exempt from annual rent-control guidelines set by the province. Critics say this could not only sway people from becoming landlords, but damage the province's rental supply. The Agenda discusses whether rent control will help or hurt Ontario.
