Building Code Updates

The role of the Building Department is to review, issue, and inspect building permits. We ensure that structures are safe, accessible, and comply with the Ontario Building Code. Through the Code, we ensure that the minimum standard of health, life, and fire safety are maintained. We also confirm that projects comply with minimum setbacks and permitted uses of our Zoning By-law.

Before you begin construction, check to see if you require a building permit. When you have a permit check to see what inspections are required.
