Morning!
I hereby contact you with a request for in-house assistance to enable us to cope with our current severe financial difficulties.

Currently my mother is 56 years old and 5 children of which; SB 32 years (currently she has just been stopped at work), Jp (me) 27 years old and well my work does not help me completely, JJQ 24 years, LB 22 years and GA 11 years. SB will continue her studies at Cité collégiale in September 2020, I also want to go to school because there is not a better life without a study base, so in September 2020 I also want to start studying and for the others they also go to school. All this to tell you that we are still new permanent residents here ( 1 year and 7 months in Ottawa Province of Ontario). We pay the rent of $ 1850 without electricity or gas ($250 to $ 300). We all left school to pay for the house but when will we pay for our own house if we rely on work without studying. We're all going back to school and my mom wants to study too so she can find a job that's not too tiring at her age.
By the grace of the Lord we will pray to you to help us with a house that no matter how we all go back to school that we are able to pay the rent without a full-time job and also to help us save to buy our own house because my mother is getting old and she will also need to have a house where an address before death comes to her because she is sick.
In the face of this situation, I have no choice but to ask for your benevolence in order to obtain home help that will prevent us from falling into the infernal circle of indebtedness.
I look forward to hearing from you and to being available for further information.sincerely,

Hi, My mom is currently 77 years old and it would appear that her landlord is using one of his relatives to evict tenements in order to raise the price of his rent. My mom is the last renter who's not paying $900-$1000 a month and it looks as though she might be next on the chopping block.

I am seeking rental information across Ontario that of any housing/rental less than $600 a month as she is on a fixed income. Any suggestions?

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Your mother may be eligible for subsidized housing. It is best that you connect with housing assistance services near you. Community agencies that provide housing assistance services will be able to support you in finding suitable accommodation for the short-term and long-term. You may also want to contact the Landlord and Tenant board if you are facing eviction.

Here is a notice from the LTB’s website:
COVID-19 Notice
Until further notice, the LTB is suspending the issuance of eviction orders and all hearings related to eviction applications — unless the matter relates to an urgent issue such as an illegal act or serious impairment of safety. For more information, please see the news release.

COVID-19 Policy – Postponing Hearings
Effective today, Tribunals Ontario is implementing a new policy to postpone in-person hearings and reschedule to a later date. Where feasible, alternative hearing options such as written and telephone hearings will be considered to minimize disruption to hearings across the organization. In addition, all front-line counter services will be closed as of March 16 until further notice. For more information, please see the news release.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.
