Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 629 (9) requires all private property be free of infestations including pests, vermin, rodents and insects.

Third parties (i.e. neighbours) wishing to file a complaint can submit a service request for investigation by Municipal Licensing & Standards on the website or call 311.

Termite control
There is currently no Termite Grant Program by the City and the original program was discontinued in 1999. You should contact a provincially licensed private pest control company to deal with any infestation. We cannot make recommendations to a specific company as these are private businesses.

There is an exemption in the Pest Control Bylaw for the use of pesticides for termite control.
