Building, Renovating & Land Use Planning

When thinking about any kind of construction or demolition work, it is essential to understand the process and requirements before beginning. Most construction projects, large or small, require that the owner apply for and obtain a Building Permit. Understanding the correct procedures will save time and money, and can avoid legal issues.

The Building and Planning Departments are responsible for the co-ordination of such services as land use planning; development design; Committee of Adjustment; building permit issuance and inspections (including Sign Applications & Pool Enclosures); septic installation and re-inspections; and property standard enforcement and inspections.

Within this section you will find information on determining whether your project requires a building permit, driveway and entrance permits, as well as general information on planning.

Information on WSIB Coverage Update

If you work in construction, the rules for mandatory WSIB coverage have changed. Do you run your own construction business? Are you the purchaser of construction services? Big or small, with workers or without, you still need to know what's changed. Find out what it means for you.
