This only applies to rentals in Canada. Even if your lease says no pets,
and many still do, a renter can have pets with impunity. The pets have to
be causing a problem and complaints from other tenants before the animal or
tenant can be forced out.
Owners of condominium apartments, however, are not so protected from bylaws
that the condo corporation enacts. If the bylaws say no pets the owner must
get rid of the animals to stay. If they choose to keep the animal they must
move out and promptly. If they fight, they will lose and the court costs
will be added to their unit maintenance, the corporation could even sell the
apartment out from under them if they persist.
