Abstract

This paper examines the factors that may influence social housing eviction rates in Ontario in terms of local authority, autonomy, and discretion over eviction. A survey and interview of staff members of the largest public housing providers in 12 Ontario municipalities were conducted. The findings reveal that there are several factors that influence each social housing corporation’s eviction rate and there are many explanations for why social housing administrators may or may not decide to evict.
