COVID 19: Petition for Financial Aid for Tenants

Right now, many members of our community have lost their income and are struggling to pay their rent. While there is a moratorium on evictions, kicking payments down the road and pushing tenants into debt is not the answer. 

We need direct financial aid for tenants in Ontario. 

I am calling for the Province of Ontario to immediate take the following steps.

  • Ban evictions, disconnections and threats of evictions or disconnections - including businesses
  • 80% rent subsidy up to $2500 per month for households that have lost their income due to the COVID-19 pandemic - paid out for four months
  • These payments should also be made available for small to medium sized businesses
  • Six-month freeze on rent increases
