The primary objective of the Minimum Housing and Health Standards is to protect and promote the health and well-being of occupants of rental housing premises and of those who may reside in the immediate vicinity of such premises. It establishes minimum conditions which are essential to good health and which make housing premises safe, sanitary and fit for human habitation. The Housing Regulation and corresponding Minimum Housing and Health Standards govern the conditions and maintenance, the supplied utilities, and the use and occupancy of housing. They are enforced by inspections of housing premises by public health inspectors/executive officers of Regional Health Authorities.
