Building & Construction

Department Overview

The Building Department is responsible for the regulation and enforcement of the Ontario Building Code. Through the building permit and inspection process, the Building Department ensures that all building projects meet the minimum requirements and standards as set out in the Ontario Building Code as well as any by-laws of the municipality and other regulating bodies. This helps to protect your investments and contributes towards a better standard of development in the community.
