There are two main sources of employment law in Canada; statute law (legislation passed by the government) and common law (judge-made law). The relative importance of each source depends on the particular area of law under consideration. Wrongful dismissal actions, for example, are based on the common law, while minimum employment standards, anti-discrimination, and health and safety laws are provided through statutes.
Concerns the area of law related to the admission of foreign nationals into Canada, their rights and responsibilities once admitted, and the conditions of their removal. The primary law on these matters is the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, which goals include economic growth, family reunification, and compliance with humanitarian treaties.
The Residential Tenancy Act applies to landlords and tenants of all residential rental units in Ontario. This includes landlords and tenants of all types of rental housing from units in high-rise apartment buildings to single-family homes. The purpose of this Act is to:
- Provide protection for residential tenants from unlawful rent increases and unlawful evictions
- Balance the rights and responsibilities of residential landlords and tenants
- Provide for the adjudication of disputes and for other processes to informally resolve disputes.
The most common question a tenant has is my lease says no pets, can I get one?
- A provision in a tenancy agreement prohibiting the presence of animals in or about the residential complex is VOID.
- Check with the Municipal Bylaws, they may have restrictions on the number of pets and the type. This supersedes the above.

- Debt recovery
- Breach of Contracts
- Recovery of Personal Property
