A tenancy agreement cannot forbid a tenant from having a pet. And once there is a tenancy agreement, a landlord cannot evict the tenant simply for having a pet. This is true even if they agreed that the tenant would not have a pet. However, there are some cases when the landlord can apply to the Landlord Tenant Board to evict a tenant who has a pet. These are some common examples:
- the pet is making too much noise, damaging the unit or causing other tenants to have allergic reactions
- the breed or species is inherently dangerous
- the rules of the condominium corporation does not allow pets like the one tenant has.
