New Smoke Detector Regulations in Ontario

Under changes to the Ontario Fire Code that take effect March 1, 2006, every floor of every house in Ontario must have a working smoke detector. The regulation will require every household and rental property to purchase multiple alarms for each floor of a multi-storey dwelling, and all smoke alarms will have to be replaced every 10 years. Fines can be up to $235 for homeowners and $25, 000 for landlords.
