Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear that you are in this difficult situation.
Are you asking about whether the tenant is permitted to do this in Ontario?
She can have whomever she wants live there with her unless she is causing a situation of overcrowding and she is not with two adults and two kids in a two bedroom apartment.
But she can be evicted if she is depriving you of peaceful enjoyment of your home.Yes you can also evict her if you need the unit for yourself or your family. There is no time limit but if she takes you to the Landlord Tenant Board because she finds you have a new tenant you will have to provide proof that you intended to move in and then did for a while and then why you then took in a new tenant.If you are not believed you will end up having to pay her moving fees and also paying the difference in rent for one year if she rents a comparable place that costs more.
Does that help clarify the law?

I am a senior lawyer in Ontario. It doesn't make sense to simply reply back and make that statement.
I cannot simply tell you what you want to hear but I can help you gain a good understanding of the law.
So why not take the time to explain what more information you would knowing that you cannot evict her for having roommates but you can evict for noise and that if you say you need the space for yourself you may have to prove it. Those are the laws. I don't make them but just explain them.
So what more can I help you with knowing all of this now?
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
