NOTICE: Update on short-term accommodation, building, and fire inspections in response to COVID-19

Short-term accommodations

Effective immediately, the County of Prince Edward is temporarily suspending the inspection of short-term accommodations (STAs).

The municipality is taking these measures to protect staff, residents, and businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak.

STA applications will continue to be processed and, where accommodations qualify, a conditional licence will be granted. Inspections will be scheduled for a later date.

STA owners seeking a licence should refrain from visiting municipal offices until further notice and send documents and correspondence electronically to stalicences@pecounty.on.ca

If you have questions or require further information regarding short term accommodations licensing, contact The County at 613.476.2148 extension 2050, 613.962.9108 extension 2050, or stalicences@pecounty.on.ca.

Construction-related building permits inspections / Fire safety inspections

Other building inspections will continue. However, out of an abundance of caution, inspections will be limited to vacant or unoccupied buildings. Building inspectors will not enter occupied sites, dwellings, or buildings.  For inquiries related to Building Permits, Contact 613-476-2148 ext. 2040 or building@pecounty.on.ca.

Fire safety inspections will continue on a case-by-case basis to ensure the safety and protection of the inspectors and the public. Should you have an immediate need for a fire inspection, please call 613.476.2345 to make arrangements.
