The City of Toronto ensures that tenants live in safe, well-maintained buildings through RentSafeTO, a bylaw enforcement program. Building owners must comply with the bylaws within the program or face financial penalties.

RentSafeTO currently governs apartment buildings and rooming houses. In the near future, the program may also include short-term rentals such as Airbnbs.
