Can I BBQ on my Condo Balcony?

Article Summary: 

During BBQ season, questions arise regarding the permissibility of BBQs on condo terraces and balconies. The regulations vary depending on municipal by-laws and condo corporation rules. While the Ontario Fire Code does not expressly prohibit BBQs on balconies, some cities allow them, while others prohibit them. Condo corporations have the authority to further restrict or permit BBQs. Propane-fueled BBQs are regulated by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority, with specific safety requirements. Electric BBQs may be recommended as a safer alternative in some municipalities. It is essential to verify local regulations and condo rules before using a BBQ on a balcony for compliance and safety.
