Tenants & Property Owners
Tenants who are asked to self-isolate or who can’t work may have difficulty affording their rent. The City of Greater Sudbury encourages landlords and tenants to establish fair arrangements, including deferring rent or other payment arrangements.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, no new evictions can be ordered unless the matter relates to an illegal act or serious safety concerns.
It is illegal for a landlord to change the locks to a rental unit or the building without giving the tenant a key for the new locks. If you are a tenant and a landlord has locked you out, or is threatening to lock you out, contact the Rental Housing Enforcement Unit:
