The building department is responsible for ensure that the minimum standards of the Ontario Building Code (O.B.C) are being met prior to and during construction. We collaborate with our Planning Services Department to confirm that projects comply with minimum setbacks and permitted uses as per our Zoning By-law.

If you are planning a construction project, the Building Department is here to help. Make sure you apply for the required building permits. Projects may include additions, renovations, new construction, demolition, septic systems, plumbing, tents, change of building use etc. Before you get started, check with the Planning Services to ensure that you comply with all Zoning requirements, which details our permitted land uses, building regulations, parking, etc.

For a list of monthly building reports, check out the Building Permit Report list.
