2023 Ontario Fire Code
The Ministry of the Solicitor General is seeking input on proposed changes to the Ontario Fire Code (OFC) for 2023. The approach for the 2023 OFC focuses on changes that:
• Improve harmonization with the 2020 National Fire Code;
• Align with recent changes to the Ontario Building Code;
• Strengthen fire safety by addressing known fire safety risks; and
• Address administrative, consequential, and minor technical amendments.
The government has committed to bringing into force an updated version of the Ontario Fire Code by March 2024, as part of efforts to reduce red tape and barriers through more coordinated development of construction codes at the federal and provincial/territorial levels.
