In Quebec, all buildings must comply with the requirements set out in the National Fire Code, which are included in the Quebec Safety Code and in the municipal by-laws of many cities, including Montreal. Absolutely unavoidable, these requirements apply to both preventive measures and protective equipment, including the installation of a sprinkler system.
All residential, commercial and industrial buildings must meet the passive and active protection standards prescribed by regulations. Passive protection refers to fire resistance, including structural and material resistance; active form refers to the use of an automatic detection or suppression system.
However, it is the owner or operator of the building who is responsible for ensuring adequate fire protection. The regulations clearly define its obligations. According to the National Fire Code, this includes ensuring that "... sprinkler systems, alarm systems, door closers and emergency equipment are maintained secure and in good working order."
