Update on RentSafeTO: Apartment Building Standards Program
Ensuring that all our friends and neighbours live in safe housing is a critical priority. I'm proud that City Council recently approved an apartment buildings standards program to help us move forward in doing that.
The RentSafeTO: Apartment Building Standard Program took effect on July 1, 2017 and applies to all residential rental apartment buildings that are three or more storeys tall and have 10 or more apartment units.
The online registration system for building owners is live, as of July 21, 2017.
Next week, building owners will begin to receive a letter, with a unique Login and password that will allow them to set up an account, and register their buildings with the City. They will also receive a copy of the RentSafeTO: Building Owner Handbook that walks them through the new program.
If residents or building owners have questions, concerns or comments, they can go to: www.toronto.ca/RentSafeTO, e-mail RentSafeTO@toronto.ca or call 416-396-7228, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
