Legal Action

Once an Order is final and binding and where there is no attempt to correct the deficiencies, the City may take legal action against a property owner. Charges may be laid under the Building Code Act.

The fines under the Building Code Act are a maximum of $25,000 for an individual for the first offence, and a maximum of $50,000 for each subsequent offence. The fines for a corporation are a maximum of $50,000 for the first offence and a maximum of $100,000 on subsequent offences.
