Bill 122 and its regulations, which came into effect on March 18, 2013, are aimed at improving building safety and security. All buildings of 5 storeys or more must present an audited report on the building façade every 5 years, duly signed by a professional engineer or architect. These verifications provide an opportunity to detect and eliminate any dangerous condition, and to make recommendations necessary for short and long-term solutions to any such problems.
