Law Reform

LSHC law reform activities are identified and driven with the goal of improving the operating environment for the small landlords in Ontario.  Lobby efforts take the form of letters, participation in consultation opportunities, stakeholder meetings, written submissions and petitions.  LSHC engages the client community through online surveys to gather input and feedback which is used inform submissions and law reform activities.
