City of Toronto takes further action on marijuana grow houses
  
The City is enhancing its procedures for dealing with properties identified as grow houses.

When the City has evidence that a property could be hazardous to the health or safety of individuals, the City of Toronto will be preventing the occupancy of these properties until they are considered safe.

“Where there is evidence that a property could be hazardous to the health or safety of individuals, we will be prohibiting occupancy until property owners demonstrate that the property is safe to occupy,” said Ann Borooah, Toronto’s Chief Building Official.

In an effort to alert people who may be acquiring, or who have an interest in a property, changes are being made to how the City’s Municipal Licensing and Standards (ML&S) Division responds to grow houses.

“Municipal Licensing and Standards will be immediately registering property standards orders on title in the Land Registry Office when issued in relation to grow houses,” said Lenna Bradburn, Executive Director, ML&S.
