Oshawa starts issuing student housing rental licences

January 14, 2010

The 2009-10 academic year began without a single licence issued to landlords renting homes near the Durham College/University of Ontario Institute of Technology campus. Now the City of Oshawa has approved 26 licences, and as many as 100 more applications have been denied and referred to a hearings process. The licences are part of a bylaw Oshawa introduced nearly 2 years ago to regulate student housing near the campus. Durham Region News
