Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find an example of the standards in the this TORONTO MUNICIPAL CODE CHAPTER 629, PROPERTY STANDARDS Document.

Here is an excerpt,

§ 629-25. Occupancy standards.

[...]

C. The maximum number of persons living in a habitable room shall not exceed one person for each nine square metres of habitable room floor area.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
