Notice of Violation Remediation
Inspections of fire and life safety services are executed by Toronto Fire Services as part of routine inspections to ensure public safety or as the result of a complaint. Inspections can occur at any time. Ensuring your building is code compliant through building audits, regular maintenance, and up-to-date records are all effective ways to prevent a notice of violation.
Fire inspections are guided by the Fire Prevention Act, 1997 (FPPA) and correspond with regulations outlined in the Ontario Fire Code, Ontario Building Code, and related municipal codes.
During an inspection, the inspector will assess the functioning of indoor and outdoor systems, reporting and maintenance records, and other regulatory standards. Systems include, but are not limited to:
- Smoke control systems
- Fire alarm systems
- Sprinkler systems
- Standpipe systems
- Lighting systems
- Alarm system
Failure to comply results in an Order of Compliance and Notice of Violation. The City of Toronto publishes fire inspection results online. These results list the building address, inspection date, description of the violation(s), and code reference.

- Review violations
- Engage the inspector
- Discuss timelines/alternative solutions
