Every May, the building industry celebrates Building Safety Month to create awareness about safety and the importance of the Ontario Building Code. This year, the OBOA’s Building Safety Month campaign theme is, How to plan your construction project – some important steps.

While Ontario is still practicing social distancing, homeowners can use this checklist to start planning for upcoming renos to homes and cottages.
