Public Meeting: Toronto's new Fire Code re-inspection fees

Toronto Fire Services (TFS) will host a series of public meetings to provide property owners with an overview of a new re-inspection process and associated fees.

Starting July 1, TFS will institute a fee for service related to the re-inspection of properties to confirm the status of previously noted fire safety hazards that were identified during the initial inspection. The introduction of these fees will end the current practice whereby TFS covers all costs associated with re-inspections, which are required when Ontario Fire Code violations are identified.

Property owners are responsible for maintaining buildings that meet the Ontario Fire Code. Taking immediate action to have building deficiencies rectified will increase life safety and will result in fewer Ontario Fire Code violations.
