STANDARD LEASES COMING TO ONTARIO
Leases signed in Ontario after April 30 this year will have to comply with a newly announced standard leasing form—which will apply to rented homes, apartment buildings, condos and other secondary units.

You can see a sample of the new lease and read more about the requirements on the Government of Ontario's website.
