ACTO Asserts that the LTB’s Digital First Policy has Discriminated Against Ontarians

Re-posted from Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario (ACTO)

The Advocacy Centre for Tenants Ontario will be representing a number of tenants from across Ontario in their human rights applications before the HRTO against the Landlord and Tenant Board.

We are asserting that the LTB’s Digital First policy has, in many cases, violated tenants rights under Ontario’s Human Rights Code.

ACTO intends to achieve a significant legal victory for those who were left behind when the LTB decided to go Digital First. These applications represent the first attempt to call the LTB to account for these violations on a systemic level.
