The building department is responsible for ensuring that the minimum standards of the Ontario Building Code (O.B.C) are 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.

Planning Services

Before you get started and apply for a building permit, Planning must review your proposal to ensure that the project meets the requirements of the Zoning By-Law.  The Planning department's forms and submission requirements can be found on the Planning Services Page.  If you require any assistance, please contact the Planning Department.

Building Services

If you are planning a construction project, the Building Department is here to help. We review permit applications, issue permits, and conduct inspections for the following:

  • Accessory buildings (i.e sheds, garages, shops)
  • Additions and renovations
  • Demolitions
  • Septic Systems
  • Tents over 60 square meters
  • Zoning and property usage requirements

Learn more on our Building Permits page. 

Call before you dig

Before you dig, think about what services might be buried in the ground such as gas pipelines, electrical services, telephone, cable, and water and sewer connections.

Damaging underground services can have serious consequences.
