Prior to starting any stage of your project, including excavation or demolition, you must obtain a Building Permit.

Permit Intake and Application Requirements for all Building Permits

For a smoother permit application process, please check that you have all the information using our checklists before applying for your permit. It is optimal that you apply in person; permit packages that are sent in by courier may be refused if they are not complete or incorrect.

Should you need further information, please contact Olivia Spencer for residential and commercial building permit applications.

For new complex buildings, the City is piloting is a pre-application permit intake meeting with staff. Please contact the Permits and Inspections staff for more information or to book an appointment.
