Great place to check out…and you could always put my names as a reference 😉Log in to Reply In Canada, Landlords cannot discriminate against pet-owners who are trying to rent an apartment. Of course they can have a preference, but it’s against the law to forbid an renter/tenant from having a pet.Log in to Reply I live in Canada and my landlord almost scared me out of my apartment until I read the comment above. I looked in to the legislation and I’m happy to say that I got to keep my cat!Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
