Building Permits and Inspection
Before any construction of a new building or renovation can begin, you will need to obtain a building permit. Whether you are finishing your basement, adding windows or doors or constructing a deck, fence or pool, you’ll need a building permit. Building without a permit can result in fines and penalties as set out in the Building Code Act.

The Town's Building Division is responsible for the review & approval of building plans, the issuance of permits & inspections under the Ontario Building Code (OBC). Including the approval of the structural & mechanical elements of buildings as well as, plumbing, heating & ventilation.
