Building Permit Applications
The Building Department provides formal permission to begin construction or demolition in both commercial and residential settings. This process ensures that minimum building standards established by the Ontario Building Code and municipal by-laws are followed. It also protects the interests of the property and building owners and helps to make sure that construction is safe, legal and sound.
Fees and Charges
The cost of the permit will vary depending on the scope of the project. For information on costs, please download the resources below:
Inspections are required to ensure construction is in compliance with the health, safety, and structural requirements in the Ontario Building Code Act. Depending on the scope of your project, you may require a number of different inspections (e.g. a new home requires 6-7 inspections while a renovation may only require 1-2 inspections). Please ask for a list of inspections when picking up your permit.
In addition to inspecting construction, renovations and demolition projects, complaints from the public related to unauthorized construction, unsafe conditions or buildings may also be inspected.
To book an inspection and close your permit file, call 613.476.2148 ext. 2040 or email email@example.com, Monday-Friday, 8:30 am – 5 pm. Please note that a minimum of 24 hours is required to book your inspection.
