A landlord is entitled to make reasonable rules that may prohibit the use, sale, or distribution of cannabis in a rental unit. These rules must be in writing and brought to the tenant's attention.
A tenant has the right to make an application with the ORT if they believe the rules are unreasonable.
See section 22.1 of The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006.

Did you know...
A lease or other contract, either written or verbal, is legally binding and can only be changed by mutual agreement of the landlord and tenant, with one exception – a landlord may raise rent on proper notice.
The landlord and tenants may agree to a change of the services provided, for example to install meters to charge for utilities rather than including utilities. If the landlord can not obtain the agreement of tenants to the change, usually by a reduction in rent, the landlord may apply for an order from this Office to allow the change and set the conditions.
