Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education Takes Pulse
on How Homeowners Have Responded to Ontario’s CO Alarm Law

The Hawkins-Gignac Foundation has commissioned a new Home Owners’ CO Awareness Poll to provide insight into how Ontarians have been impacted by the new law mandating the installation of Carbon Monoxide Alarms.  John Gignac, the Executive Director of the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation for CO Education is available for interviews leading up to and during Ontario’s CO Awareness Week, which runs Tuesday, November 1st to Monday, November 7th.

Discussion Points:

  • How many homeowners are in compliance, 1-1/2 years after the law went into code?
  • Just how aware are homeowners today about the type of appliances and equipment that can be potential sources of carbon monoxide?
  • What are the Myths and Facts about CO Alarm Replacement Requirements?
  • Exactly what do homeowners need to do to help protect their families, especially as we head into colder weather which typically sees a rise in CO close-calls and poisonings?
  • Why we can’t forget the terrible Woodstock tragedy and how it inspired Ontario’s new Law and the formation of the Foundation?
  • The latest initiatives involving the Hawkins-Gignac Foundation in the drive for greater awareness AND consistent standards all across Canada – is there momentum outside of Ontario?
