As part of the CFAI accreditation process, Toronto Fire Services is undertaking a city-wide risk assessment exercise. Part of this exercise includes examining building stock attributes, demographics, vulnerable occupancies and historical fire event data. In preparation for the risk assessment, a 2016 building construction date layer has been created. This has provided a unique opportunity to examine residential development patterns since the Toronto Building Construction Date map was first created in 2003. Instead of distinct colour bands spreading out from the core, the map now shows scattered infill throughout much of the City of Toronto.
