We make sure our city’s properties are safe to live and work in.

Toronto’s the fastest growing city in North America, with new buildings springing up every month. And our city is also filled with more than 8,000 heritage buildings that must be preserved and maintained. If any building or home ⁠— new or old ⁠— is unsafe, our members are there to make sure it’s fixed. We monitor construction sites to protect both passersby and the people who work on them, strengthen bylaw enforcement, give tenants better access to information and make sure Toronto’s buildings are kept up to code.

Now these vital services are under threat.
Now these vital services are under threat.

With thousands of people flocking to live here every year, and new construction projects springing up everywhere we look, Toronto’s growth shows no signs of slowing down. But the services our city provides can barely keep up.

We cannot allow public safety standards to fall behind. This means our city needs more inspectors, testers, and enforcement officers to reduce the burden on current positions and ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.

Toronto deserves better. Help us continue to deliver the services our communities depend on.
