Thus, 19.6% of Quebecers aged 12 and older were smokers in 2014, while the rate is 18.1% for all of Canada. The APQ is interested in the extent of the restrictions on the electronic cigarette by which the draft Act aims to assimilate its use to smoking. Because of its harmful effects and situations where batteries have exploded causing injuries the APQ agrees with the fact that the electronic cigarette should be subject to the same prohibitions as tobacco.

The Association of Quebec Landlords (APQ) reminds you that the tenant who has notified his departure must move out on the last day of his lease, i.e. on June 30th for all leases ending on the 30th of June.

“There are only a few days left for rental property owners before the big moving day. One last tip: go see your tenants, if it is not already done, and ask them about the time of their moving to their new place. You can be sure that your tenants prepare their moving well,” says the APQ.

One of the worst situations that can happen on the 1st of July, or at any end date of the lease, is that the tenant decides to stay in the dwelling. Your former tenant, “theoretically”, does not want to leave anymore and your new tenant is at the front door. If you are unable to make him understand reason, you will need to open a file at the Régie du logement for “Eviction of an occupant without right.” This request is given priority.
