About the Hotline

The Tenant Hotline is a free telephone counseling service for tenants in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Hotline is operated by the Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations. Our Hotline Counsellors offer information about tenants' rights to any tenant who calls.

If you do not feel comfortable speaking English, we can provide services in 150 languages through a telephone interpreting service.

Hours of Operation

The Hotline operates from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-hours callers can leave a detailed message, which will be responded to on the next business day.

If you call and do not reach a Counsellor immediately, please leave a message. State your name and phone number as slowly and clearly as possible. We will return your call as soon as we can.

The Hotline also maintains 4 mailboxes which contain information on specific tenant questions. Callers may access these informational mailboxes by simply entering an extension number for the relevant mailbox. If your question can be answered by the information contained in one of those boxes, we encourage you to access it.

Organizing and Outreach | The Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations

Whether Tenants want to start a tenants' association, apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board, fight a demolition or conversion of their building or dispute an AGI, we can provide the resources and skills tenants need to help them work together and assert their rights.


Tenant Education Project | The Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations

People entering the rental market for the first time are often at a severe disadvantage because they generally haven't had access to education about their rights as tenants. We have found that there are very few resources available for new tenants, consequently we've doubled our efforts to host workshops for people entering the rental market.


The Federation of Metro Tenants' Associations

The majority of our work focuses on assisting tenants in disputing Above Guideline Rent Increases, and we also help tenants fight demolitions or conversions, provide general workshops on tenants' rights, as well as information and referrals for tenants. The Outreach & Organizing team provides information, referrals, workshops, and outreach & organizing services for tenants in the City of Toronto.
