Check local by-laws

Many cities, towns, and other municipalities have by-laws that say how many people can live in a place based on its size. Your local councillor or city hall might be able to help you find out what the by-law says.

If you are breaking a by-law by having too many people living in your home, your landlord could tell you to ask some people to leave. If you don't, the landlord could try to evict you.
