Renters not adequately protected in Mississauga, advocacy group says

An advocacy group in Mississauga, Peel ACORN, claims that the city's rental compliance program is failing to protect tenants. The program, similar to Toronto's Rent Safe program, aims to ensure proper maintenance of rental units. However, Peel ACORN argues that landlords are not complying, and tenants are unaware of the program. A survey conducted by the group revealed widespread repair and maintenance issues. Peel ACORN is calling for stricter criteria for passing inspections and increased awareness among tenants. The City of Mississauga is reviewing the survey results and plans to provide an update to the council.
