Important COVID-19 update about the Landlord and Tenant Board
The LTB is holding most hearings remotely, by phone, video, or in writing. Some people have had trouble connecting to remote hearings. If you have a video hearing scheduled, download Microsoft Teams ahead of time and make sure your setup is working.

There have also been reports that it can take a long time to get through to the LTB by phone. If you need help right away, contact a lawyer or your local community legal clinic.

Your landlord can try to evict you if they say you have not paid all your rent. First they must give you a Notice to End your Tenancy Early for Non-payment of Rent (Form N4) with details about what you owe and when you must pay.

If you receive a Notice of Hearing from the Landlord and Tenant Board, this means your landlord has taken the next step by filing a Form L1 - Application to Evict a Tenant for Non-payment of Rent and to Collect Rent the Tenant Owes. The Board should send you a copy of your landlord's Form L1 together with the Notice of Hearing.

There are still ways for you to stop the eviction by paying, making an agreement with your landlord, or winning your case at the Board.
