Updated Information for Residential Rental Licensing By-law

An update on court proceedings, including documents filed and orders issued by the court, is the latest addition to the Residential Rental Licensing (RRL) Pilot Study pages available online at CityW.ca/RRL.

Since the launch of the RRL Pilot Study on February 13, 2023, more than 500 licence applications have been received from owners whose participation shows their willingness to demonstrate and improve tenant safety. During this time, City administration has continuously updated and expanded information on its website as it becomes available.

The RRL By-law remains in effect, although a group of property owners has launched a court challenge. To address confusion in the community about this topic and provide reliable information, City administration has added additional resources on the City’s website, including links to court documents for public viewing.

Residents, property owners, and local businesses can send detailed questions not addressed by these pages to residentialrentals@citywindsor.ca by email. Knowledgeable staff monitoring this email address will ensure timely responses and update the website when new frequently asked questions are identified.

The City of Windsor continues to encourage owners of rental properties in Ward 1 and Ward 2 with one to four units to secure a residential rental licence for each rental housing unit as soon as possible. The City is committed to working with property owners on this safety initiative and remains focused on education and voluntary compliance at this time.
