Bathroom Exhaust Fan / Venting ??

The Query is just What is Code / Allowed in Ontario for Venting the Condensation to the Outside ?? Some say You can vent through the Sofit ?? I wondered if I could run the exhaust hose up through a Cupola Style Vent Hood in the peek of our roof ??.. That idea was to save cutting into the roof, but others say With the Installation of Bathroom Exhaust Fan I have to run a dedicated hose directly through the Roof or Attic Wall ?? Thoughts, Ideas Appreciated, Cheers Thanks.

Re: Bathroom Exhaust Fan / Venting ??

I don't have the building code with me. (and your city or town can add more on top of it anyways) Generally though, it has to have a dedicated vent communicating to the outdoors.

They can be common vented with other similar exhaust fans, but different applications cannot be. Eg. 2 bathroom fans are OK, a kitchen and bathroom fan is not. This is why the vents in the attic can't be used.
