ONTARIO BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS
The Ontario Building Code provides clear standards to help keep Ontario residents safe. One of the priorities is the accessibility for Ontario residents with disabilities. These requirements are set in place in order to help establish an accessible Ontario by 2025.
The New Accessibility Amendments to Ontario’s Building Code came into effect on January 1, 2015. The current code requires that all buildings must have at least one universal washroom for every three floors.
The washrooms can be located wherever is most suitable within each building, based on architects recommendations. The universal washroom requirements will enhance accessibility within the buildings which are undergoing renovations that are more than 300 sq. ft. or newly constructed buildings.
Existing buildings, which are not undergoing any renovations and small renovations under 300 sq. ft. are not affected by these new requirements.
The Building Code requires that new builds and large renovations must construct universal washrooms with an enclosed area equip with a barrier-free toilet and sink to allow for more turning space to accommodate a wheeled mobility device. In addition, the building code requires the installation of a power entrance door.
The universal washrooms provide privacy and dignity for people with disabilities, which may require assistance or an attendant.
