Renovations: the Quebec Housing Tribunal sides with a group of Plateau tenants OCN News

A ruling by the Régie du logement du Québec tribunal has sided with a group of Montreal tenants facing so-called “renovictions,” when tenants are evicted from their homes to make way for renovations.

The decision on Friday ensured that residents of Manoir Lafontaine – a 90-unit apartment building in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood – were not forced to leave.

The landlord had given tenants until June 30 to move out in order to begin major renovations to the building.

But the decision may have come too late – of the 90 homes, only around 15 still have tenants.
