Carbon Monoxide Legislation

On October 15, 2014, the Ontario Fire Code makes it mandatory for all residences to have carbon monoxide detectors in every sleeping area, if it has fuel fired appliances (natural gas, propane), a fireplace or an attached garage.  

This requirement comes into effect April 15, 2015.  Homeowners and landlords are required to install and maintain the alarm. 

For more information please refer to the Carbon Monoxide Alarm Legislation.

Fines and/or charges may be laid to either the landlord or tenant if these responsibilities are violated. Please visit the OFM website for further information.
