Brochures


Important: On May 5, 2022, the LTB created a new Renting in Ontario webpage. This new webpage replaces the Frequently Asked Questions and Brochures webpages with more user friendly information and resources. This Frequently Asked Questions and Brochures webpages will be removed at a later date.


LTB brochures provide information about:

  • Rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants
  • Processes at the LTB

You can read or print them here or pick up a copy at LTB offices and some ServiceOntario Centres.

If you need a brochure in print or alternate formats like large print or braille, contact us.
