As presented by Councillor Fortin:


WHEREAS the City of Greater Sudbury Council passed a motion on September 26, 2023 setting a goal to end homelessness in Greater Sudbury by 2030;


AND WHEREAS N13 evictions, which are defined as a “Notice to end tenancies because the landlord wants to demolish the rental unit, repair it or convert it to another use” have become increasingly common throughout the Province of Ontario; 


AND WHEREAS these so-called renovictions almost always impact lower income tenants living in affordable units at below current market rents;


AND WHEREAS other municipalities are attempting to address this issue by exploring by-laws to provide protections to tenants against unwarranted and bad faith N13 evictions;


THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City of Greater Sudbury directs staff to explore opportunities to reduce the number of renovictions in Greater Sudbury and to present a report to Council by October of 2024, outlining possible actions the municipality can undertake which could include recommendations for amendments to various by-laws, the use of building permits and a potential city-wide renovictions by-law, together with any cost/staffing implications.
