    Thanks for the replies everyone.

     

    buildings, zoning, property standards and Bylaws divisions are all involved in rooming house complaints. Owners have gotten wiser and refuse access to the city. Fire is the most successful getting in. 9.3 is applied when application can be met, which is extremely difficult. That is where I am looking for insight from other municipalities.

    Proving remuneration is VERY difficult and is required to apply 9.3.

     

    What is your city doing?

    Are you successful with 9.3?

    Does your department use 2.1.2.2?

    Does your department issue F orders?

    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.

    Hey Matt,

     

    Brampton Fire has a special team that was created to tackle hoarding issues.

     

    Shoot an e-mail over to Maddie Crevier, and I’m sure she can give you some more info about SOG’s, training and task groups they are working on.

     

    Crevier, Madelaine
