Please see my story before I could find a job in Canada
---A New Immigrator's Undergoing In Toronto---

My former landlord lives at Jane and Shoreham (near Jane and Finch). The man
was from northeast China and the woman was from Beijing. They have a girl
about 13 years old. The wife do not have a job, she just depend on the poor
salary about several dollars per hour from the husband. The apartment they
rented is two bedrooms, because of lack of money, they decided to change

They used timber board and cartons round up the hall and kitchen, then live
themselves into the hall and left two rooms for rent. When my friend
searched a room for me, he did not notice that it is a two beds rooms
instead of three bed rooms they had told him, so my first stop in Canada was
selected there, and the landlord always states the apartment is near the
York University, in order to get more attention from students. By this way
the income of our landlord from two tenants was over $800 a month, and they
can earn their payment for the apartment if we add the milk fee from their
child. When I just moved in, the landlord asked for deposit of 100 dollars
for the keys to inter the apartment and room. There were no telephone line
in my room, so I had to pay $69 to Bell Canada to do the inside wiring work
and set up a telephone for myself.

At the beginning our life is tranquil. One day I inform my landlord that I
would move out because my friend would have a room available 40 days later.
I told him that the Oct 1st is Monday; I would pack my belongings before the
noon. If there would be new tenant moved in, I would place my suitcases
aside and wait for the work over of my friend who will help me move out in
the afternoon.

Unfortunately they could not find a new tenant for my room before I moved
out, so their attitude to me became worse and worse. Some times I greeted
them when we met and the wife seemed reluctant to say something. Two days
before I left, the landlord came to me and said I must move out before
12:00AM of Oct 1st, otherwise I must pay the extra rent fee for the hours
after midday. Of course I refused him and inquired him why he changed his
mind after so long time we made a deal. He said at that time he did not say
agree word to me. At that time the wife rushed in my room, with great volume
and scandalous words, while her finger point to my nose, asked why I want to
delay shamelessly. The landlord let his wife went away and told her we would
discuss it again. Just after several seconds she went out, she rushed in my
room again with offensive high pitched voices and the landlord asked her to
go out again. Again after several seconds, I heard her coarse shouting again
from the aisle and she wanted to rush into my room the third time. I then
closed my door and locked it quickly, and bang! She hit herself on the door
heavily. This is the first time I dealt with a bitch. I just remember
clearly that their little girl stood aside to watch our three quietly,
watched her crazy mother. I told the landlord to dismiss the little girl;
this would have bad influence on her. And he then asked his daughter back to
their room. At this moment my telephone rang, my friend was waiting for me
under our building, so I had no time to deal with them and went out, while I
still could hear the women roaring in the apartment before I entering the

Originally I planed to move out on the afternoon, Oct 1st, but the tenant in
my friend’s apartment moved out one day ahead, so I moved to my new
location one day ahead also. I told my landlord that my SIN card will be
mailed to me few days later; I will call them to check after one week to see
if it comes. One day later the landlord called me and told me that he will
only check my letter for me only one day, he urged me to order the Letter
Transfer service in the post office, and he will not responsible for any
letter missing since the day after. Then I called the Human Resource Canada,
they said they just mail me the SIN card on Oct 1st, and they will resend it
to my new address, and I get my SIN number.

My neighbor besides me moved out of that apartment approximately at same
time, he also got the phone from our landlord for refused to receive our
mails for us. When he go to the post office to ask, the officer said they
need 7 days to begin transfer our letters. At that time he received a call
from post office to inform him that he had a package arrived, and he need to
get it using the package notice. When he called our landlord to ask the mall
notice, they always hung up our calls once they knew it was from us.

This issue makes me angry and I will do something to protect my right.
