Carbon monoxide detectors are now mandatory in Ontario homes

Carbon monoxide in the home is impossible to smell or see, and is deadly.  So in order to improve community safety, carbon monoxide detectors are now mandatory in homes in Ontario, as reported by CBC.

Although technically the carbon monoxide detectors have been required since October 15, 2014, there was a phase-in or "grace" period.  But as of April 15, 2015, they are now required in all small residential properties- including personal homes - by the Ontario Fire Code.

For more information on the installation and testing requirements, refer to the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services page on it <here>.
