The Hawkins-Gignac Act, As of April 15, 2015, all Ontario homes at risk of carbon monoxide (CO) exposure must have CO alarms installed near sleeping areas, or risk penalties. We have prepared materials from the unique vantage point of one of Canada’s worst carbon monoxide related tragedies, in which CO claimed the lives of a family of four from Woodstock, ON and was the impetus for the creation of the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education. This new law makes carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes with fuel-burning appliances or attached garages, no matter the age of the home.
As of July 1, 1998 under the Ontario Fire Code, every home in Ontario is required to have a working smoke alarm. Homeowners must ensure that smoke alarms are installed between sleeping and living areas. They are also required to maintain the smoke alarm in working order.
