The Residential Tenancies Act (the RTA) came into effect on January 31, 2007.   The RTA sets the rules for most residential rental housing in Ontario.  The previous legislation, known as the Tenant Protection Act, (TPA) is no longer in effect.

The Landlord and Tenant Board’s role is to provide information about the RTA and to resolve disputes between most residential landlords and tenants. The Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal is now known as the Landlord and Tenant Board.

The mission of the Landlord and Tenant Board is to inform landlords and tenants about their rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancies Act and provide balanced and timely dispute resolution in accordance with the law.
