I guess I should clarify. Zoning permits BRL occupancies in the downtown core only. they got through a registration process and the city and fire inspect them yearly.


What I am talking about is a single dwelling unit that has been chopped up to fit as many human beings in it as possible.

I guess this is really a question for the GTA departments and municipalities that have colleges and universities in them.


Does your department respond to complaints about suspected lodging houses, do you have a task group or dedicated FPO’s, do you involve other agencies? Do you issue 9.3 orders or F orders? Do you try to prosecute straight away?

I need to gather some data and perhaps support from other departments dealing with this issue to bring up my departments food chain to see if we can get something done to help tackle this fire safety issue.
