List of some pet-friendly condominiums in Ottawa

As pet lovers ourselves, we know how important it is to make sure that our prospective next home will accept our dogs.

It is very common to find condominiums that don’t allow pets and specifically dogs. As a buyer with pets, you must know before making an offer whether or not your furry family member will be welcomed.

As condominiums’ rules and by-laws change over time, and construction of new condominiums reach completion, we will do our best to keep this list up to date…

Please note that we recommend double-checking any restrictions on weight and/or breeds accepted in your desired condominium before you buy a unit. If the condominium corporation’s declaration prohibits pets or has restrictions, they are allowed to restrict you from having pets in your condo and even in some cases, they can obligate you to remove your pets from the building.

As your Realtors®, we will make sure your pets are allowed in your new condo before you buy it or even consider making an offer.



On the other hand, landlords can refuse to rent to a person who has a pet. It’s unfortunate but true. Until a person actually enters into a rental agreement, there is no tenancy; the person and their pets are not protected.

The Ontario’s Residential Tenancies Act does not permit landlords to include “no pet” clauses in rental agreements. However, a landlord cannot evict a tenant simply because they were unaware of a pet, or because the pet was adopted after the tenant moved in. A tenant can only be evicted if a pet is making too much noise, damaging the unit, causing an allergic reaction to others, or is considered to be inherently dangerous. Even then, the landlord must apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board for an order terminating the tenancy before kicking people and pets out. Finally, a landlord is not allowed to charge a pet deposit.



As your Realtors®, we will make sure your pets are allowed in your new condo before you buy it or even consider making an offer.
