Bill 22 – Act to amend the Civil Code as regards the resiliation of a dwelling lease in certain situations

Corps

The new provisions of Bill 22 clarify the rules applicable in the case of resiliation of a lease under certain articles of the Civil Code of Québec.

In a letter to the Minister responsible for Seniors, the Québec Ombudsperson stresses the importance of this bill, which she feels would better protect renters—especially seniors—thanks to the removal of certain vague points and the possible reduction of the financial consequences of resiliation of a lease.
