The Quebec rental board has released the percentages by which landlords can raise rents in 2015.

The basic percentage increases allowed for this year are:

- Unheated dwellings: 0.6 per cent.

- Heated with electricity: 1.0 per cent.

- Heated with heating oil: 1.4 per cent.

- Heated with gas: 1.8 per cent.

Any increase will take effect at the time a new lease begins, which in Quebec is normally July 1.

There is more information and a rental increase calculator on the Régie du logement's website.
