In the spring, unseasonably warm temperatures can cause the temperature in rental units to rise above 21 degrees making it uncomfortably hot for tenants. Building owners/operators, use your judgement. If outdoor weather raises the temperature of apartment units above 21 degrees Celsius, consider turning the heat off.

RentSafeTO: Apartment Building Standards is a bylaw enforcement program ensuring that building owners and operators comply with building maintenance standards. As part of the program, bylaw enforcement officers conduct building evaluations, audits and investigate complaints submitted to 311, so that Toronto residents living in rental buildings have clean, safe and secure homes.

The RentSafeTO Building Owner Handbook for an overview of the bylaw and summary of key regulations. The handbook was last updated in March 2024.
