  • Location: City-Wide
  • Issue: Affordable Housing, Licensing, Property Standards, Neighbourhoods, Housing, Enforcement
  • Contact: Mohamed Shuriye, Senior Policy and Research Officer, 311, mlsfeedback@toronto.ca


The City is conducting a two-phase review of multi-tenant houses (commonly referred to as rooming houses) to address issues relating to the regulation and condition of multi-tenant houses. 

In areas where multi-tenant houses are permitted, we are looking for feedback on the licensing strategy for multi-tenant houses, including new requirements on operators to help protect health and safety of tenants and mitigate neighbourhood impacts.

Proposed additional requirements include multi-tenant operators providing:
•A property maintenance plan
•Site or floor plans
•A waste management plan
•A parking plan
•Written confirmation on the maximum number of tenants of the multi-tenant house 

Have your say:

Tuesday, June 27
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Wellesley Community Centre, Room A

495 Sherbourne St, Toronto
