Rooming House Licensing By-law Review Update


In 2008, Schedule 26 to the Licensing By-law 2002-189 relating to rooming houses was harmonized to apply City-wide, and included definitions of “residential use building”, “rooming house”, “rooming house, converted”, “rooming house owner”, and “rooming unit”.

A couple of issues with respect to rooming house licensing were raised as part of the By-law Review Strategy approved by Council in 2015. This review therefore focuses on those issues, which include: the definition of rooming house, as well as the identification of illegal rooming houses.
