Release of Data Related to Elevators Across Ontario

As a provincial regulator, TSSA is committed to transparency, openness and accountability. To that end, TSSA is releasing data related to elevators across Ontario. The following data sets were selected for release based on the richness of data and the current public interest in elevators.

The data was extracted during the fall/winter of 2016 as a one-time initiative and references a five-year timeframe – from January 2011 to December 2016.

TSSA’s intention is to make data sets from all its program areas available at no cost, consistent with the Government of Ontario’s Open Data directive, once its information systems are fully upgraded. That said, all bulk data requests will be consistent with TSSA’s Access to Information Policy and Fee schedule.
