Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network
Starting May 1, 2018, tenants from four high rise buildings in East Hamilton took the bold and
courageous step to launch a rent strike. Tenants are withholding rent to protest the landlord’s application for a large rent increase above the government guideline and to demand that the landlord make longstanding and necessary repairs to their units. For more information.
