Stop landlords from requesting credit reports. Everyone is entitled to a home

This petition had 146 supporters


Canadian laws surrounding landlords requesting credit reports needs to change! Many people are left without homes because their credit is poor. What landlords don't realize is that potential renters’ credit ratings are usually poor because they spend their income on rent rather than of paying their other household bills on time. Every Canadian should have the right to housing! This is a basic RIGHT. Also, the way in which some landlords go about checking a possible renter’s credit is done so in unlawful manner. This may include having family members related to the landlord check it. Among this illegitimate activity, stories of abuse come about. Laws regarding credit reports needs to change to ensure everyone has a FAIR chance in receiving housing. Credit reports shouldn't be the difference between a home and a shelter.
