Smoke-Free Housing

In Ontario, there are no laws that regulate smoking in private, self-contained units in multi-unit housing. However, it is legal for landlords to create a smoke-free policy for their building.

The majority of Ontario residents do not smoke in their homes and prefer smoke-free environments. To respond to this demand, Ontario landlords and housing providers are offering more smoke-free options for residents. Having smoke-free housing benefits both the tenant and the property owner, including cleaner air for residents and lower turnover cost for the landlord.
