The Ups and Downs of Ontario's Elevators

Article Summary: 

The article discusses the challenges faced by residents of high-rise and low-rise condominiums in Ontario due to elevator breakdowns and maintenance issues. Elevators have become a crucial aspect of transportation in condominium buildings, especially for aging communities and mobility-challenged residents. Data shows that elevator functionality in condominium buildings is at 93% availability, and elevator delays can cause major disruption to residents' lives. The article highlights a private member's bill, the "Reliable Elevators Act, 2017," which sought to address the elevator crisis in Ontario but hasn't been proclaimed into law yet. The Ontario government introduced the "Access to Consumer Credit Reports and Elevator Availability Act, 2018," which mandates penalties and deadlines for elevator downtime, but its implementation remains uncertain.
