You can contact the Landlord and Tenant Board for application forms and for general information about landlord and tenant issues. The Board cannot give you legal advice.
The Board's website address is www.ltb.gov.on.ca. You can call the Board at 1‑888‑332‑3234 or 416‑645‑8080.
There is a $50 fee to make an application to the Board. You might get this money back if you win your case. If you have a low income you can ask the Board not to charge you the fee. To do this, you will need to fill out a Fee Waiver Request form. You can ask the Board to send you this form, or download it from the Board's website.
