This workshop will focus on the sections of the Residential Tenancies Act which affect landlord-tenant relations most. The facilitator will also demonstrate legal and self-help remedies that are available to tenants, and considerations landlords must use in their operations. Eviction procedure, eviction reasons, and the Landlord and Tenant Board process will also be discussed. Participants will also gain an understanding of the basic legal rights of residential tenants and how various laws intersect. Using a problem and client-focused approach, the facilitator will deal with legal remedies available at both municipal and provincial levels. An important aspect of this workshop involves a discussion of the options and resources available to tenants and how they can be accessed.
The workshop will be facilitated by Faiza Malik of the Centre for Equality Rights in Accommodation. She has over 5 years of experience as a lawyer and advocate on a wide range of legal matters, and especially in landlord and tenant advocacy.
