The Apartment Building Standard (ABS) program is based on a new bylaw Chapter 354, which defines formal criteria to identify all rental apartment buildings in the city with 3 or more storeys and 10 or more units. The ABS program is part of RentSafeTO which is a multi-residential inspection program that establishes standards on how building owners operate their building(s) and communicate with their tenants, in addition to establishing a schedule for continuous building evaluation, audit and enforcement of these standards.
This dataset contains building information for the buildings that are registered in the ABS program. This information was collected from building owners/managers during the initial registration process, and is updated on an annual basis as part of the registration renewal process.
