What You Need For Building Projects.

A building permit is the expressed permission of a municipality to start construction of a building project in compliance with the building code and act. You must obtain a building permit before you do any of the following:

  • Construct a new building over 10 square metres (107 sq. ft.)
  • Install a swimming pool
  • Renovate, repair or add to a building
  • Demolish or remove all or a portion of a building
  • Change a building's use
  • Install, change or remove partitions and load-bearing walls
  • Make new openings for or replace doors and windows
  • Build a garage, balcony or deck or enclose an existing deck
  • Excavate a basement or construct a foundation
  • Install or modify any life safety or fire suppression system such as fire alarms, sprinkler or standpipe or fixed extinguishing systems.
  • Install or modify heating, plumbing, and air conditioning systems, fireplaces, fireplace inserts and woodstoves
  • Install or renovate plumbing
  • Construct or reconstruct a chimney
  • Finish a basement or convert a room to a bedroom
  • Build a retaining wall or fence
  • Install sofit and facia or siding
  • Install eavestroughs
  • Damp-proof basements
  • Erect temporary buildings (incl. tents over 30 square metres)

Why do I need a building permit?

A building permit is a means to regulate developments in the community to meet health, fire, structural and general safety standards to protect individuals and the community as a whole. It is illegal to start work without a permit. Anyone who starts work without a building permit is in contravention of municipal by-law and the Ontario Building Code Act and is; therefore, subject to financial and legal consequences.
