Fees for Fire Services

January 2019

When Toronto Fire Services are called to a condo building there may be a fee charged to the corporation. One reason for this is to help cover costs when a false alarm is triggered.



Three fees that are commonly paid by condo corporations for Toronto Fire Services:

  • Nuisance Fire Alarms – $1,378.35
  • Non-Emergency Elevator Entrapment – $459.45
  • Re-inspection of life safety systems relating to previously noted fire safety hazards after Ontario Fire Code violations are identified – $99.71+

Condo corporations can reduce their costs by maintaining equipment and avoiding false alarms. This results in fewer system failures and service calls.
