The City occasionally emails important information about the RentSafeTO program to apartment building owners. Provide at least one active email address during the registration/renewal process so that you receive these notices.

Every rental apartment building with three or more storeys and 10 or more units must register with the RentSafeTO: Apartment Building Standards program. Once registered, building owners are required to renew their registration every year by July 31 and pay a renewal fee.

 

Register and renew your apartment building through the RentSafeTO portal. A login number and PIN are required to access the portal. The City will provide you with this information.

  1. For new registrations: download and complete the Apartment Building Registration Form and submit it to the RentSafeTO team. Staff will review the application and provide you with a login number and PIN for the RentSafeTO portal so that you can finish the application process and pay the registration fee. Payment can be made using a Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card. Visa Debit is not supported online at this time.
  2. For renewals: you can view your invoice and make payment using a Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card once you have logged into the online portal. Invoices are sent out at the beginning of July and payment must be received by July 31. Visa Debit is not supported at this time.
