Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some helpful information on the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation website in the Regular Repairs section.

Here is an excerpt,

If you pay rent for something, such as a fridge, and it breaks, your landlord must fix it. This includes all appliances provided with the rented premises; if the unit came with a fridge and stove, your landlord must fix them when they break or require maintenance. Your landlord is also responsible for maintaining and repairing common areas. These include halls, lobbies, stairways, elevators, security systems, swimming pools, laundry facilities, and garbage rooms.


You may want to contact the nearest Community Legal Clinic for some advice regarding your situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
