Building Permits & Inspections
Under the Ontario Building Code, a building permit is required for the construction or alteration of any structure over 10 meters square (108 sq. ft.) in area. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that a building permit is obtained prior to any of the construction taking place. A building permit application and detailed drawings of the project must be submitted for approval.
In addition to a building permit, other approvals may be required, based on your location and/or type of project.
