Residential Building Permit is a formal permission, from the city in which you are located ,required for the construction, renovation, alteration, relocation, demolition, and repair of all one and two unit dwellings, as well as decks, garages, car ports and accessory buildings. This includes new construction as well as work done to existing buildings. Building Permits are required to ensure that all new work to be done comply with  the Ontario Building Code, local zoning By-Laws and other applicable regulations.

Building Permits regulate different types of building constructions that are permitted within the community and ensure they meet all the standards.

        * Site Plan

The building permit process is essential because it ensures that the owner's interests and those of the community at large are protected.
