Check your lease - it should stipulate the exact situation regarding viewings - I do believe you can request that you be present for the viewings and you are only avail certain days or times.
You can also double check the industry standard in the RTA, online (residential tenancies act). The landlord must make a reasonable attepmt to notify you prior to entry.
"...Entry to show rental unit to prospective tenants:
(3) A landlord may enter the rental unit without written notice to show the unit to prospective tenants if,
(a) the landlord and tenant have agreed that the tenancy will be terminated or one of them has given notice of termination to the other;
(b) the landlord enters the unit between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.; and
(c) before entering, the landlord informs or makes a reasonable effort to inform the tenant of the intention to do so. 2006, c. 17, s. 26 (3).
The above was taken directly from the ACT, so make sure you let your landlord know that YOU know that they must make contact with you prior to entry....be certain they have your cell # or they may say they had no number to reach you. Yada Yada...
They can enter without the standard written notice but they have to at least inform you prior to any viewings.
