In cities and town across Ontario, tenants are being targeted and ripped off by their local governments. Fair Tax Fair Rent is a coalition of concerned Ontarians committed to exposing this unfair tax on tenants.

Our goal is simple – fair taxes and fair rents for tenants.


Rental buildings in Ontario pay municipal property tax rates that are two to three times what homeowners pay.


A Home is a Home

Only in Ontario do tenants pay property tax rates that are 2 to 3 times higher than homeowners. All other major cities across Canada tax tenants fairly compared to single family homes or condos.

Fair Taxes for Everyone

Tenants currently pay far more than their fair share of property taxes, even though on average tenant incomes are lower than homeowners. That’s just not fair!
