Landlord in Thunder Bay, Ont., who says he’s owed $11K in rent calls for LTB changes – Atin Ito News

Anshul Jain says his tenants in Thunder Bay, Ont., have never paid rent. Tenant advocates say there’s not enough affordable housing in the region. Both are calling for changes to the provincial Landlord and Tenant Board amid a growing backlog of cases and a national housing crisis.

Advocates say lack of housing leaves renters in financial trouble without options.

Anshul Jain says he hasn’t received a single payment from two tenants at his rental property in Thunder Bay, Ont., but is most upset about the unpredictability he faces with the Landlord and Tenant Board (LTB).

Jain is a physiotherapist at a long-term care home in the northwestern Ontario city. He and his wife purchased a rental property at the end of July 2023 in hopes of earning additional income.
