RE: Public Consultation on the Next Edition of The Ontario Fire Code
The Ministry of the Solicitor General is currently seeking input on proposed changes for the next edition of the Ontario Fire Code, O. Reg. 213/07 made under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997.
The proposed changes to the Ontario Fire Code focus on improving harmonization with the 2020 National Fire Code, aligning with recent changes to the Ontario Building Code, strengthening fire safety by addressing known fire safety risks, and addressing administrative, consequential, and minor technical issues in the code.
Between May 29 and July 13, 2023, stakeholders are invited to participate in the public consultation and provide feedback on the proposed changes, as well as on potential costs and impacts related to these proposals.
Proposed changes are available for review and comment via the Ontario Regulatory Registry at the following link: 2023 Ontario Fire Code (ontariocanada.com)
