Do you know where you can find zoning information for all municipalities within the RAHB market area as well as for the surrounding areas covered by the regional group?
The answer: in Matrix!
Just click on the Links tab, and when you see the list of System Links, scroll down to Zoning. It’s that simple! Click on a link and you will go straight to the zoning information or, in the case of Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville and Niagara Falls, you can choose to use the interactive zoning maps or read the zoning bylaw.
While you are scrolling down the list of links, why not check out what other information you can link to in Matrix: RAHB sites, tax information for various municipalities, CREA sites, OREA sites and other resources.
Check out what you can find under the Links tab today!
P.S. You will also find links to the Hamilton and Burlington interactive zoning maps through buttons on your dashboard at my.rahb.ca!

All residential leases signed on or after April 30, 2018 must be on the new Ontario standard lease form.
Changes to the Residential Tenancies Act makes it mandatory to use the standard lease template that is currently available only through the Government Forms Repository. According to information provided by the Ontario Real Estate Association (and sent by OREA to all members on March 21, 2018), OREA Form #400 – Agreement to Lease Residential can be used only to set up the terms of the lease and the standard lease template must be used to formalize the actual lease.
OREA is in the process of reviewing their Form #400 – Agreement to Lease Residential – and its associated clause for any revisions they may need.
Be sure you know the terms of the standard lease form for Monday, April 30, 2018!
The RAHB Directors and staff wish you a safe and happy holiday weekend! (Please note the RAHB office will be closed on Friday, March 30. We will re-open at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, April 2.)
