Recently went for a viewing of a 2 bedroom condo for rent and the landlord has created a third makeshift room in the living room which is also available for rent. Is this legal in Canada?

The condo is located in the Kitchener/Waterloo municipality (Ontario, Canada) and is geared towards university students. The unit has 2 bedrooms and the landlord has created a third makeshift bedroom in the living room by placing a large shelving unit to corner off an area. The shelving unit is not floor to ceiling and there is no door for the "room". The place was advertised as a 3 bedroom unit for rent.
I am wondering if this is legal to do (for renting purposes). Also looking for relevant links that can speak to the legality of this.
