Can Landlords Ban You From Smoking Marijuana? It Depends on the Province

Recreational cannabis will be legal in Canada on Oct. 17, but renters in some provinces might not have the right to smoke or cultivate it in their homes.

Quebec’s new cannabis act, considered among the strictest in the country, gives landlords the right to change signed leases specifically to ban tenants from smoking marijuana.

The Quebec law states that “a lessor may modify the conditions of a lease … and in the absence of a refusal, the prohibition is deemed entered into the lease.”
Landlords will only have 90 days to make the change after marijuana becomes legal in October, and it will not apply to medical cannabis.
