Check local by-laws

Many cities, towns, and other municipalities have by-laws that say how many people can live in a place based on its size. Your local councillor or city hall might be able to help you find out what the says.

If you are breaking a by-law by having too many people living in your home, your landlord could tell you to ask some people to leave. If you don’t, the landlord could try to you.
