What am I owed since my landlord shut off the water?

: My landlord had to shut down the water on Saturday and only gave me a couple of hours warning. It's Monday and it's still not on. I'm in Ontario and I'm wondering what my rights are in this situation.

I'm not looking to sue or anything like that, but I was talking with coworkers today who said that my landlord had to pay for a hotel room. While I'd prefer to stay at home anyway (I have a water tower and can shower at work), I am eating out rather than making my own food and I'm using a lot of bottled water for things like the toilet which all costs money.
I found this section of the Ontario Tenant Protection Act
, but it doesn't really speak to remedies or how long things are allowed to go on. It looks like the water may be back on tonight or tomorrow, should my landlord be responsible for my additional costs? (this was due to a leak in the basement apartment)
