In February 2011, a fire in Sudbury Ontario resulted in an occupant sustaining severe, life threatening injuries. Irrespective of the cause of the fire, 45 charges were laid against the property owners and managers for infractions related to the poor maintenance of their fire alarm system and inadequate measures taken to prevent the spread of fire. Under the Ontario Fire Code, corporations found guilty of an offence under the Fire Prevention and Protection Act are subject to a fine of up to $100,000 per infraction and up to a year in jail.

“This incident was a wake-up call for owners and managers of all types of buildings,”
– Marc Leduc, Greater Sudbury Fire Chief
