Public meetings to provide information on 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.

New fee information can be found at:

TFS encourages property owners to attend one of the following public meetings:
• Wednesday, June 21, Scarborough Civic Centre, Council Chamber, 150 Borough Dr. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Meeting will be held from 7 to 8 p.m.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto will honour Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions.
