Permit inspections

COVID-19 Notice: To ensure the health and safety of our staff, please refrain from booking inspections if you're experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or if any of the members of your household are in self isolation due to COVID-19. 

Request Inspection

Permit inspections are required during various phases of a project and are carried out by the Building Department. It’s up to the permit holder to arrange for inspections. Inspections are conducted Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (the office is closed on weekends and statutory holidays).

You can book an inspection by calling our 24-hour inspection line (250-469-8977) or filling out the online permit inspection request form. Requests received before 3:30 p.m. on a business day can be scheduled for the next business day; same-day inspections aren't available. Due to the volume of requests, we don't provide call backs to schedule.

All inspection requests must include:

  • Correct permit number for each type of permit
  • Type of inspection being requested
  • Contact person’s name and phone number
  • Date inspection is required

Please be advised that failing to provide the above information may result in your inspection not being registered and no inspection taking place.
