Can my landlord increase my rent above the guideline?

Your landlord can apply to the LTB for permission to raise the rent by more than the guideline. Your landlord still must wait 12 months between increases and give 90 days' written notice. This kind of rent increase is sometimes called an above guideline increase or AGI.

The LTB can allow an AGI even during the 2021 rent freeze.
