Permits & Inspections

There are a variety of permits that must be obtained before your business or residence undergoes any major construction or alteration. Permits are also required for projects that involve tree cutting or interior finishing. Inspections ensure the work on your construction or renovation project complies with your permit and the bylaw.

The BC Building Codes change regularly. Encourage your contractor, builder or designer to attend the City’s Builders’ Forums
