Ontario legislators have raised the monthly rent allowance for MP’s in Toronto to $2300 a month. The MPPs said the 20 per cent increase was necessary due to Toronto’s sky-high rental rates. But with the average cost of rent in Toronto set closer to $2,055, we can’t help but wonder what $2,300 really looks like in Toronto’s rental market.
We decided to follow up on last week’s news by gathering some noteworthy apartments currently available in the market. Wonder no more, this is what you’ll find in Toronto for $2,300 or less.
