The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) is pleased to announce the filing of Ontario Regulation 275/14, a regulation made under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997, that comes into force on January 1, 2015, and amends the 2007 Fire Code (Ontario Regulation 213/07) with changes that clarify requirements for licensed child care programs in schools, provided for children enrolled in full-day kindergarten and higher grades.

Proposed changes to the Fire Code were posted for public consultation on the Ontario Regulatory Registry in April 2014. The OFMEM extends its appreciation to all stakeholders who provided feedback during the public consultation period.
