BUILDING CONTROLS DEPARTMENT

The Building Controls Department is responsible for administering and enforcing the Ontario Building Code Act and its Regulations, the Planning Act and Municipal By-Laws.  This is done through plans examination, issuing the appropriate building permits and conducting site visits at various stages of construction.  

A building permit regulates the type of construction allowed in the community and helps to ensure building standards are met. The building permit process protects each homeowner's interests, as well as those of the community and helps to ensure that any structural change is safe, legal and sound.

By obtaining a permit, you can also take advantage of the professional expertise of Building Division staff. Inspectors are good sources of information and can offer suggestions to help solve construction problems, often before they occur.

If you would like to schedule an in person meeting, please call the Municipal Office at 705-898-2294 to set up an appointment.

 NOTE:  Walk-ins will no longer be accepted.  You must schedule an appointment in order to speak to the Building Department staff.
