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 required 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.

Should you need further information, please contact Permits and Inspections staff for building permit application information.

Pre-Application Meetings

For new buildings and additions, the City facilitates a pre-application meeting with staff at your request. This meeting can be used by developers as a tool in the planning process and helps to expedite the building permit application process. Please contact the Permits and Inspections staff for more information or to book an appointment.
