Smoke-Free Housing Update


Good News for Smoke-Free Housing!

The Ontario Ministry of Housing has completed the process of developing a Standard Lease, which includes a section that invites landlords and tenants to agree to a smoking policy. This will make it much easier for them to agree to smoke-free policies and over-time will greatly reduce exposure to second-hand smoke.

The use of the new standard lease will become mandatory for most residential leases on or after April 30, 2018.

 Check out this video to learn why this is good news for everyone:

 For more information about the Standard Lease, visit or the Ministry of Housing website if you have further questions.
