Permitting & Inspection

To ensure that your commercial and residential construction, renovation or demolition projects are safe for their intended purpose, the Permitting and Inspection service staff review applications, issue building permits, and conduct inspections.  

Building and plumbing codes and related by-laws guide the permitting and inspection process.  Our goal is to ensure these standards are met; through education, mediation and as necessary through enforcement and prosecution.
