Building Permits provide the means for Building Officials to ensure the health, safety and welfare of building occupants. All Building Officials are expected to follow the Code of Conduct for Building Officials at all times.
The Building Permit process helps you understand what the local bylaws and regulations are. Before any construction or remodelling work begins, a permit must be obtained.
Building Officials use Building Permits as a vital step in their enforcement of codes. You have a major investment in the home or business you are about to build or remodel. When that home or business does not comply with the codes, the value of your investment could be reduced. Applying for a Building Permit notifies the Building Official that you are constructing or remodelling a building so he or she can ensure the regulations in the Ontario Building Code are followed.
A Permit is required to construct or demolish a building. Construction can include anything in the erection, installation or extension or material alteration or repair of a building. Common permits include Building, Plumbing, Sewer, Water, Demolition, Moving a Building, Swimming Pools, Temporary Event Tents, and Signs.
The standard Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing Application Form is now required for all permit applications.
Payment of the building permit fee must also accompany your application for permit.
