The Town of Bracebridge wants the province to step up and address the increasing problem of “renovictions”.
During the most recent general committee meeting, Coun. Chris Wilson brought forward a motion asking the province to take meaningful steps to address the “renovictions” problem in Ontario.
“Renovicitons” happen when a landlord evicts a tenant by claiming they will complete major renovations (or demolish the unit or convert it to commercial use).
Wilson said “renovictions’ ‘ are happening right here in Bracebridge and are causing stress and hardship to local residents. In the motion, he said citizens and communities are hurt by these unscrupulous practices which can and do directly impact the affordable housing crisis, as well as inflict damage (both financially and mentally), particularly on the most vulnerable citizens.
