Should a paralegal be running a property management company and representing landlords in LTB ?
According to the Landlord & Tenant Act.. NO she doesn’t fit the definition of Landlord and is known to us April Stewart as a Landlord representative instead of Catherine Stewart the LEGAL representative ! COMPLETE MANIPULATION OF THE LTB COURTS
Catherine April Stewart of Walters Falls, Ontario has been alleged to have been operating a fraudulent property management firm since 2006 when she became a paralegal and joined the Law Society of Upper Canada and was bound by the rules set out by the LSUC.
Stewart claims on her Landlord Legal website about us page, she sold the property management company in 2006 but obviously lied since she is still known to operate the company from Barrie, Ontario to this day although in conflict with the LSUC rules.Stewart uses an email contact system to screen landlord applicants off of her website.
Catherine Stewart, a licensed paralegal with the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) since 2006, has been known to operate the fraudulent property management company under the name Landlord legal from a small cubicle office located at 117 Bayfield Street, Barrie Ontario.
The property Stewart uses for her conflict of interest paralegal / property management businesses is shared with an account firm and the building is owned by Wendy Kara of Sophia Development Corporation.
The accountants that share the building have been known to receive legal documents that were suppose to be delivered to a secure Legal office but instead ended up in the hands of the other tenants thus unknowingly releasing private and confidential information meant for her legal firm.Another breach of the Rules of Conduct of paralegals for receiving private and confidential legal court documents.
As a licensed paralegal with the LSUC Stewart is suppose to be bound to follow the Paralegal Rules of Conduct set out by the Law Society. Stewart uses her paralegal status along with her property management firm and her boyfriends ex OPP status, private investigator claims and process server company to harass and evict tenants for her landlord clients.
Stewart has been known to file vexatious Civil Court claims in 2013 against Privacy-Violators but abandoned the claims when she filed in the wrong court to have this website shut down for warning the public against her sharp practice tactics against tenants.Stewart will,have to take the matter to Supreme Court of Canada to stop the warnings and publications of her illegal actions and knowingly misleading the Landlord and Tenant Board.
Catherine Stewart has been known to break many of the Paralegal Rules of Conduct, but when Stewart operates the 2 businesses together, they are a conflict of interest according to the Law Society guidelines set out for registered Lawyers and Paralegals.
Conflict of interest
- a) Paralegal – Landlord Legal.inc
b) Property management – Landlord Legal
- Insecure legal files being received by other tenants in building

Catherine Stewart’s Law Society profile can be found listed at the LSUC public portal HERE
Stewart has been known to sign April Stewart (not legal name) to legal court documents and then refuses to honor agreements she makes under her fraudulent property management company making tenants she goes after, waste court time, waste tenants money and knowingly breaches the LSUC Rules of Conduct again in doing so. As a paralegal she can not make and sign agreements and then deliberately not honor them costing the other parties monies to collect. This is another complaint put forth in the new LSUC complaints filed against her.
Stewart is known to refer to herself as a “Landlord representative” in LTB hearings not a legal representative !!
Stewart is known to manipulate the LTB courts constantly and breaches the rules of conduct for her landlord clients.
Diane Smith has been known to work for Catherine Stewart in the past and is a disgraced paralegal who also operated a paralegal firm under different names and failed to show up for the Law Society hearing when complaints were filed against her. Diane Smith sold her house on Masters Drive in Barrie and was alleged to have moved to New Market with her son before the Law Society could catch up with her.
Read the LSUC determination against Diane Smith and the fines set out HERE.
There has been numerous reports of this “SHARP PRACTICE” tactic done by paralegal Catherine Stewart.
If you would like to learn what Sharp Practice is then please read this post HERE.
The Canada Revenue Agency, after being contacted by us about possible tax fraud, stated it has no listed business or tax records of Stewart’s property management company she runs in conjunction with her paralegal firm.
There was also no business records or tax records for Paul Smith, Stewart’s alleged ex OPP boyfriend or husband operating a Private Investigator company, and acting as Process Server for over 10 years for his paralegal girlfriend.
Catherine Stewart, who works for landlords only, has also been known to break rules under the Business Act, when Stewart uses two separate names for running her fraudulent scheme.
Catherine April Stewart is also known to call herself a Landlord Advocate and the “Terminator” when she attacks tenants rights that are set out in the Landlord and Tenant Act 2006 and the Human Rights Code.
Catherine Stewart does not fit the definition of a “Landlord” under the act and again is in conflict with the LSUC when she knowingly appears for landlords at LTB hearings.
Catherine Stewart defended herself and ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, against Human Rights allegations brought up against them by a tenant in 2013.
The Paralegal Rules of Conduct set out by the LSUC can be read here : PARALEGAL RULES OF CONDUCT
New complaints have again been filed with the Law Society to look into the Sharp practice tactics, harassment, conflict of interest, false testimony and false evidence submitted by Catherine Stewart in the Human Rights allegations brought up against her and her ex OPP boyfriend Paul Smith, who operated as a Private Investigator when he was not legal or licensed to do so.
We will of course be following the LSUC complaints to see what if anything the Law Society does to protect the public and court participants against illegal tactics of this paralegal who took a 1 year college course to get her paralegal license and manipulates the law and the rules for her landlord clients.
This paralegal definitely puts the Law Society in disrepute with her Sharp Practice and illegal methods.
Please continue to email us details when you encounter this paralegal or her ex OPP boyfriend when they try to evict you.The new series, entitled The Stewart Solution might have some interesting tactics you can use against Catherine Stewart or April Stewart and her landlord clients. You can take or leave the advice we give to tenants in the new upcoming articles.
The Stewart Solution series will be published soon to give tenants some ideas of what you can do, or what you can destroy, and get away with it legally when you get harassed by this lowlife paralegal (in our opinion).
FIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS !! Nobody else is going to do it for you.

The public needs to know the laws concerning a paralegal who has an outside interest that is clearly in violation of the LSUC Rules and Regulations.
The public needs to know the Conflict of interest when a paralegal acts in the capacity of a paralegal and when a person acts as a property management company.
Unfortunately the complaints to get these issues investigated by the Law Society of Upper Canada, and have this paralegals license and actions reviewed to see if her actions were unbecoming of a paralegal, licensed through the Law Society will be heard after the Human rights allegations against Catherine A Stewart of Landlord legal, Catherine Stewart,ex OPP officer Paul Smith, Ralph Dykstra, Donald Dykstra and William Dykstra of Dykstra bros Electric.
In this writers opinion, this paralegal has blackened the reputation of paralegals and the Law society when she can manipulate and delay allegations and court procedures to save her little property management company and her conflict of interest paralegal business and personal reputation.
How can you be an advocate for rights when you abuse the system and violate other peoples rights to fight for Landlord clients ?
Why should this paralegal be allowed to hide behind a FALSE LEGAL legal status when she causes the issues and then hides in plain sight !!!
NO JUSTICE HERE only abuse of the system in our opinion. Send your comments and past interactions with Landlord legal and we will post to the NEW series continuing the paralegal Rules of conduct and business Rules of the Law Society and educate the public on the LSUC biggest mistake ever of allowing paralegals to work as a property management company.
Privacy Violators website is meant to warn you and educate the public of privacy violations and common rights that are being manipulated, ignored and trampled on because of the Canadian Legal system and the rules in place by the LSUC.
The Law Society of Canada should not have ignored and refused to investigate legitimate tenant complaints concerning landlord legal and manipulating methods used.
The Law Society has allowed another (3) three years of practice from Catherine Stewart and the same conduct unbecoming a paralegal complaints with the illegal break in allegations only because she claimed to have filed a SCC lawsuit in 2013 which April Stewart has done nothing to further. Another move to manipulate the system, abuse the system and delay the system as well as continue to severely harass the applicant who had filed the LSUC and Human rights allegations against her.
I hope you can learn something of some of these methods mentioned and write to the LSUC to have the paralegal investigated for her actions.
Law Society of Upper Canada fails to investigate complaints against Catherine Stewart of Landlord Legal inc.
In this websites opinion
The Upper Law Society of Canada is suppose to be a place where the public goes for protection and takes complaints against lawyers and paralegals to be investigated when rights have been violated or wrong doing has taken place. In our opinion .. What a JOKE !!
The following NEW series of posts will follow ALL the complaints that were filed by a Canadian citizen and tenant in regards to several serious paralegal complaints filed in 2013-2014 with the Upper Law Society of Canada.
