How much can a landlord legally increase rent for the next year? Our lease needs to be renewed and my landlord is doubling the rent. They mentioned the clause about only 2.5% increase does not apply. Tired of reading a bunch of contradicting stuff on the internet.

Unfortunately if you’re not covered by rent control they can raise the price to whatever they want every year with a 90 day notice. Was your unit lived in before November 2018? That is the only requirement for being protected under rent control. If that applies to you definitely fight this increase!


No it wasn’t lived in before nov 2018. Thank you!

They raised it by 2.5%

How do the economics of this city work?

I make ~150K & get 8K per month net.

Assuming I have 3K rent + 1K for (car + insurance) + 1K for (grocery + utilities + misc expenses), I’m left with 3K/month saving which is 36K/yr.

If I decide to buy a 1M house/townhouse/apartment, I’ll need to put down 200K deposit which will take ~5-6 years - IS THIS NORMAL?


Hey Everyone, I'm a Mechanical Engineer that has not worked in the Engineering field since being in Canada. My degree is from a fully accredited institution but I have sent numerous amounts of applications and no company wants to take the chance. Since I've been here I work my way up in the few industries that I've worked in. I just need a opportunity to apply my knowledge and experience with the Mechanical Engineering field.
