COVID-19 Update: Extended Time to Request a Fire Marshal Review

In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency declared by the Government of Ontario, an emergency order (O. Reg. 73/20) has been made that suspends the limitation periods of legislation in Ontario for the duration of the emergency. As such, the normal 15-day and 30-day limitation periods for making a request to the Fire Marshal under Sections 25(1) and 25(3) of the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997 are temporarily suspended while the emergency order is in effect. For the duration of the emergency, the Fire Marshal may accept requests that are made beyond the normal 15-day or 30-day limitation period.

For more information, see Fire Marshal’s Communiqué 2020-07.
