Named the way to make money on Ukrainian refugees in Canada
Globe and Mail: Canadian landlords ‘take advantage’ of Ukrainian refugees
Canadian landlords have found a way to block refugees from Ukraine. about that says In an article in the Globe and Mail.
Real estate owners require Ukrainians to pay a deposit for housing months in advance. And despite this refugees often don’t have enough money to pay a month’s rent.
As an example, the publication cites the story of 45-year-old Galina Durisvit, who arrived in Canada with her 15-year-old son in March. The woman had been looking for an apartment in Toronto for six months, regularly responding to rental offers. But she was constantly being asked by landlords to pay six months’ rent in advance, which is prohibited by local law.
According to the charity, this is far from an isolated case. Some refugees have to pay a year in advance. Landlords take advantage of newcomers. Asking for a deposit for six months and a year is ridiculous. It’s just inhumane,” said Ifat Ghasemi, executive director of the Peel Newcomer Center.
There were earlier reports of Ukrainian refugees being forced to return home due to rent problems in Britain. High prices and poor conditions in the UK real estate market forced them to return to their homeland.
