Evictions starting again in Ontario

Starting August 4, 2020, the eviction freeze that protected most residential tenants and homeowners from being evicted by the Sheriff has expired.

This means that if the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB) has made an eviction order against a tenant, the landlord can have the Sheriff enforce the order by evicting the tenant and having the locks changed.

The landlord does not need to get special permission from the Superior Court, as they did during the freeze.
