December is not that and 250 $ is not that expensive to get your self out of this situation, maybe the guy who is doing this for you is on a way to be deported too so he is taking on everyone as a hobbit.
with la regie du logement you can open a case but the time you will be scheduled a hearing your lease will end anyhow.
the cops will be a better option if he keeps slamming the doors this way , they gonna talk to him .
don't cry , watch a comedy and go to sleep everything will be fine soon

Your current lodgings sound a bit dodgy, i'd pack my stuff and just leave, i doubt the landlord will do much about it,
move in with a room mate, or rent a room, never mention your previous landlord to any future landlords.

montreal rooms & shares classifieds - craigslist

If you dont want to just walk away at least lodge a complaint with the regie de lodgement.

And if your downstairs neighbor is doing what you say he;s doing i;d also lodge a complaint with the local police dept.. and next time your neighbor is making a big ruckus/noise call the cops so they can actual see and hear whats going on, and tell them you fear for your wellbeing as the neighbor is liable to exact retribution for your actions.

I don't want to seem insensitive but four years should be long enough to pick up enough conversational French to be able to work in a store and deal with the public.

I had dinner with a friend over the weekend who is eastern European and moved here 5 years ago with no French at all. He works in French all day and can crack jokes in French with references from Quebec TV shows.

And it's not as if not not knowing a language is an unchangeable status. It's like not knowing how to a ride a bike. Or not knowing how to cook food.

I don't understand how you haven't been able to move out in four years given how hellacious this all is. Is there anything else going on? There has to be some other kind of constraints if for four years you were unable to get ahold of the owner of the building nor find another place to move to.

My advice (if you're real)? Go to a library with an internet connection and no cameras (don't use your own computer), and look up revenge tactics. If the authorities won't help you, you need to beat them at their own game. Sometimes the only way to stop a bully is to bully them harder. You're lucky, in the old days before the internet, we had to learn this stuff on our own, or through hard-to-find books. Look up things like the chicken bomb, stuff that won't hurt anyone but will be very annoying. And don't admit to trying anything here. [This advice is for entertainment purposes only. ;-)]

She tried. Evidently two hundred places turned her away.

it's a question of being qualified or no , it's not a question of number of places she tried .
if you have a low income you can try 1000 times with no results , especially the area she come from (around Vandom) is notorious for having expensive apartments (still don't know why) in her case renting a room in a shared house will be the best option.

Which points to a lot of other context missing here.

As the upstairs neighbor, I'd say you have the upper hand in being a pest to an adjacent tenant. If you haven't been able to figure out even one way in four years how to get revenge on a neighbor who lives underneath you, that says more about you than him.

Your best bet is to just ride it out and leave, or just leave.

I know a young woman on welfare with two kids and three cats and she found a new place within a week in Cote St Luc. I can't imagine being refused 200 times, unless you're shopping around in Westmount on the hill, where rents start at about 5 grand a month, if not more.
