Building permits & inspections

A building permit is required for any changes, alterations, or additions to a structure.

Apply for Building Permits at the Application Centre located on the second floor at City Hall. Depending on the complexity of the application, initial plan check takes approximately two weeks for a single family dwelling and four weeks for commercial, industrial and multi-family buildings. After a building permit is issued several site inspections are required (building, plumbing and heating) prior to final approval and the issuance of an occupancy permit. Permit fees vary according to the cost of development. 

Due to educational upgrades for the City Inspectors & Plan Checkers, these staff will not be available and there will be NO permit inspections on Wednesday December 5th. Regular inspections will resume on Thursday December 6th.
