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

If your project requires rezoning of the property, your rezoning application must be approved before your Building Permit application will be considered.

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 by courier in 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.
