Bill 77 updates the Ontario Fire Code to mandate the use of carbon monoxide warning devices in houses, condos, apartments, hotels and university residences that have a fuel-burning device such as a fireplace, gas stove, water heater or furnace — or if the home is attached to a garage.The devices range in price from $30-$60 and can be plugged in, hard-wired or battery operated.

Progressive Conservative MPP Ernie Hardeman first introduced a private member’s bill calling for mandatory carbon monoxide detectors after the tragic death in 2008 of OPP officer Laurie Hawkins, her husband, Richard, and their two children.

Bill 77 is called the Hawkins-Gignac Act in honour of the family. Retired firefighter John Gignac, uncle to Laurie, launched a charitable foundation that promotes carbon monoxide awareness and raises funds to purchase alarms for at-risk residents.
