Brampton pauses rental licensing pilot

Brampton launched a Residential Rental Licensing pilot to tackle illegal lodging, requiring landlords to register in select wards. However, the program was temporarily paused due to feedback from landlords about administrative burdens and overcrowding from subletting. The city responded by making adjustments, including fee waivers and streamlined processes. Despite low initial participation, there is recognition of the urgent need to address housing affordability and illegal rentals. The city council also called on the provincial government to address delays at the Landlord and Tenant Board to support the program’s effectiveness.
