The Property Standards section is responsible for the enforcement of private property offences, in order to ensure residents maintain their properties. The section is composed of 20 officers, of which 4 are assigned to the Second Unit Task Force. During the summer months, post-secondary students are hired as Summer Inspectors to address excess grass and weed growth, as well as waste-related complaints.
Second Unit Task Force
In July 2018, the Second Unit Task Force was launched to assist with the investigation of illegal dwelling units in multi-unit houses and lodging houses, in order to ensure by-laws and relevant codes are followed. The Task Force is comprised of members from the Enforcement Division, Building Division and Fire Prevention team. The goal of this collaborative effort is to ensure safety standards are met, as well as the well-being of residents in these homes.
