New Elevator Repair Legislation - 2022

Publication date:

Article Summary: 

A new elevator legislation has been put into effect in Ontario as of July 1, 2022. The legislation requires a report to be submitted to the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) within 30 days after an elevator in a building used for residential occupancy experiences an "outage," defined as being out of service for 48 hours or longer. The report must include outage details, building address, elevator maintenance schedule, and names of manufacturer and maintenance contractor. There are currently no financial penalties for non-compliance, but elevator outage data will be searchable online by address. This legislation is a first step towards improving the availability of elevators, which is currently at 93% in condominium buildings, due to a shortage of trained elevator technicians.
