ServiceOntario Assists Huntsville Fire Victims

The ServiceOntario office in Huntsville will offer extra help on Wednesday, October 21 to residents of the Empire Hotel who lost important identity documents in a recent fire.

Staff will be available to help fire victims fill out applications for items such as lost birth certificates, health cards and social insurance cards.

Representatives of the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board will also be present to offer advice to former apartment tenants of the Empire Hotel.

Assistance will be available during normal business hours and extended from 5 to 6 p.m. on October 21, at the ServiceOntario office located at 207 Main Street West in Huntsville.


“Fires like this can be devastating to the victims. It's only right that we help them restore important documents that were lost. We did the same for Huntsville seniors who were affected by a residence fire in 2008.”

Harinder Takhar

Minister of Government Services
