Provincial Rent Guideline Increase

The Guideline sent by the Province of Ontario for rent increases in 2011 is .7%.  However, the Guideline set for rent increases in 2012 is 3.1% using the same formula.  The current government has indicated they may look at the way this increase is set annually as it is currently based on the Consumer Price Index which reflects changes in prices for goods and services not necessarily associated with rent.
