Global News: In an effort to address the housing affordability crisis, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has proposed reforms to resolve the renter’s issues.

Among the three main reforms is the amendment to the Canadian Mortgage Charter, which would allow tenants to use on-time rent payments as their credit scores. The government will provide $15 million to fund the provincial legal aid organizations, which will help protect tenant rights and interests against unjust rent practices and renovations.

The second initiative the prime minister has put forward is to establish the Canadian Renter’s Bill of Rights. This will make it mandatory for a landlord to show and inform a renter about the price history of a rental place. The intention is to boost a renter’s bargaining power while at the same time guarding them against unscrupulous practices.

These steps fit into the overall housing agenda of the government and will be included in the 2024 Budget to be presented in Parliament on April 16.
