Answer

The Ontario government has a standard lease form that most landlords must use for tenancy agreements signed on or after April 30, 2018.

Landlords are not supposed to rent a place without a written agreement. And the agreement should be on the standard lease form.

You can’t force the landlord to use the standard lease form. But the law gives you certain rights if they don’t.
