For the past few years, I have been on many job sites where the Ministry of Labour Insepector has come by and demanded work stoppage until a Designated Substance Survey has been performed and the corresponding reports have been received.

  • The maximum fine issued this year was $60,000 CAD.  

Having a DSS done can not only save you time and money, it can save your life and the lives of your workers.  Having a DSS done is the responsibility of the homeowner.

The Healthy Abode Inc. provides Ministry of Labour approved DSS reports, in as quickly as one business day.  We are fully insured, WSIB and certified.

If you are a contractor or demo company, please email/call if you’d like a DSS Homeowner’s Fact Sheet, to assist you in explaining the necessity and importance of having a DSS performed to your clients.

If you would like any more information or if you would like an estimate for The Healthy Abode Inc. to perform a DSS on one of your sites, please call me at 647-889-2254, email at or check out our website at
