Your home may be a rental housing unit, a government subsidized unit, a housing co-operative, or you may own your home. The rules and laws are different and depend on the type of housing that you live in, as well as if anyone lives with you and their relationship to you. Human Rights laws may also apply. This section explains some of the different types of housing, and includes Home Care, Care/Retirement Homes and Long-Term Care Homes.
Getting legal help
The law can be very complicated, so if you have a question or problem, we recommend that you get legal advice about your situation:
- People living with HIV in Ontario can contact us for free legal advice.
- You can contact your local community legal clinic to find out about services in your community. You can find your local community legal clinic as well as specialty legal clinics using the Legal Aid Ontario website: https://www.legalaid.on.ca/services/legal-clinics/.
