Status of building inspection notices for evacuated properties

When buildings in Guelph are evacuated because of a flood or fire, the City’s Building Services staff assesses the property and determines whether it’s safe for occupancy.

Following our assessment, we issue inspection notices for any needed repairs—to ensure compliance with the Ontario Building Code—to the property’s owner and/or manager.

Here is the status of our inspections at the following properties:

16 Wilsonview Avenue

  • Building partially vacant
  • Inspection undertaken on March 23, 2017
  • Inspection report issued to the property owner and manager on March 24, 2017
  • City granted approval to re-occupy the majority of units on March 29, 2017. The property owner can notify residents to return to approved units
  • The property owner can continue working on the needed repairs for the 8 remaining units and common areas of the building. When this work’s complete and these units are considered safe by the City, the remaining impacted tenants can return home

316 Kathleen Street

  • Building partially vacant – areas most affected by fire
  • Inspection undertaken on March 23, 2017
  • Inspection report issued to the property owner and manager on March 24, 2017
