Building Department

Welcome to the Building Department

The Building Department is responsible for making sure that all new buildings, additions or structures are built in accordance with the Ontario Building Code Act. Building Permits are required prior to the construction or demolition of any building/structure. Our goal is to provide efficient service in administering the Ontario Building Code and various municipal by-laws and programs. The staff of this department is committed to ensuring any construction proposal is dealt with in a fair, consistent and cost effective manner, and is willing to assist whenever possible.
