Leah Davidson started this petition to Niagara Regional Council and

I Hope to achieve with this petition a bylaw change within Niagara region

  • Prevent Rental homes from being switched to family homes and then back to rentals
  • Prevent single family homes being turned into multi unit rentals i.e.: Student housing
  • Prevent unscrupulous buyers from buying single family homes and turning basements into illegal apartments 
  • Prevent landlords from changing advertised price of Rentals 
  • Prevent landlords from asking for signing bonuses , finders fees , additional costs etc
  • Limit certain information for rental application
  • Prevent discrimination against ODSP/OW applicants 
  • Prevent discrimination based on pets
  • Prevent Government institutions i.e. universities and colleges from owning multiple family homes and turning into student housing
  • To have NRH increase their single family homes through Niagara region and city councils.
  • Permits to ensure that a rental home is actually listed a rental home
  • increase bylaw officers to inspect and fine illegal properties

Something has to be done in regards to rent rates as the shelters are overwhelmed and families are literally becoming homeless. Bylaws need to be created to insure fairness to all.
