Founded in 1990, the Eastern Ontario Landlord Organization (EOLO) represents the owners and managers of more than 37,000 residential rental suites in the Ottawa area. EOLO’s members include some of the largest landlords in Ontario, as well as many small and medium size landlords. EOLO advocates for the rental housing industry in the Ottawa area, educates its members regarding changes to regulations, and provides a forum for information exchange among its members.
EOLO has a strong working relationship with the City of Ottawa and many other stakeholders in the rental sector. EOLO has achieved many positive results for landlords, including improved property tax treatment for landlords in Ottawa, municipal housing allowances for low income tenants, and preventing burdensome landlord licensing. EOLO has achieved those and other good results by engaging with community stakeholders, advocacy, education and teamwork.
