Very little of substance from any level of government in Canada gives me hope that affordable housing in Ontario will become a reality within the next decade, but I see much evidence that it won’t happen.
Most residential landlords would say without hesitation that Ontario’s annual rent increase guideline does not fairly reflect the true cost of operating a residential rental property in Ontario. Is that really true?
