Can I bring a tenant directly to small claims court, in Ontario, instead of going through Landlord and Tenant board?

Can I bring a tenant directly to small claims court, in Ontario, instead of going through Landlord and Tenant board? One tenant, have refused to pay rent, despite promises. I served an N4 to evict.  He moved in an "emergency" mid-June. I was tryting to help. Despite several promises, he is not signing the lease and has not paid a penny in 2 months. I need this money. I gave him an N4, which he ignores. Now he says he will leave but will not say when. The worse is that I have to show the apartment to inquiring tenant, but cannot promise the apartment to anyone because I have no assurance he will be gone, comes August, or still be there. I don't want him to just bail out at the last minute, leaving no forwarding address for claims court. He would certainly leave no forwarding address, they never do. Can I bring him to small claims court now? I have all emails to show, my superintendent's efforts and notes, and a motel manager (he still owes money to a motel). This is all ready for court.Thank you very much. Claude. Toronto
