Would you be surprised if your landlord asked you for a pet security deposit? Or worse, denied you as a tenant because you had a dog or cat (or some other animal or reptile family member)? Renting with pets can be tough but understanding pet rental guidelines where you live is important.

In Canada, landlords have quite a bit of power when it comes to pets and rental units, but how much power depends on where the rental unit is located. That’s why it’s important to know the differences in pet rentals, landlord rules and pet policies from province to province across Canada.
