Two public interest inquiries by the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) will explore if new rental housing licensing bylaws in North Bay and Waterloo create discriminatory barriers to rental housing. The inquiries are being conducted under the OHRC’s Human Rights Code mandate to promote, advance and protect human rights in Ontario.
The inquiry invites interested parties – tenants, landlords, community groups, advocates and service providers – in the North Bay and Waterloo areas to complete a survey about the new bylaws, online or in writing. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2012. read more
