Building Permits

Building Permits fall under the Township’s Building and Development Department. A Building Permit regulates construction in the community so that general safety standards including health, fire and structural are met to maintain the well being of all individuals in the community.

The municipal Building By-law incorporates rules and regulations. The Township’s Fees and Charges By-law establishes the fees that are associated with the department.

Under the direction of the Chief Building Official, the Building Department authorizes the issuance of Building Permits in compliance with the Ontario Building Code.

It is illegal to start work without a permit. Anyone who starts work without a building permit is in contravention of the Building By-law and the Building Code Act and is therefore subject to financial and legal consequences.
