Apply for a Building Permit
The City of Regina has prepared a building permit checklist that you can follow to ensure your application is properly filled out.
For most projects, you will need to include the following with your application for a building permit unless otherwise specified:
- Building permit application
- Two sets of plans. Each plan must contain or illustrate the following information:
- drawn to scale with metric dimensions
- identify lot dimensions where the building will be located
- list the position, height, and horizontal dimensions of all buildings that exist or are to be constructed on the lot
- note the elevations of the building
- show the plan of each floor or building that identifies the use of each room
- contain cross section showing construction of walls, roof and floor, including insulation
- mechanical and electrical drawings where required
Note: If your application involves liquor licensing, you will be required to submit 5 to 10 sets of plans.
- Permit fee: Look at the building fee schedule to determine the amount. If writing a cheque, make it payable to the “City of Regina”.
- Architect’s or Engineer’s Seal: If your project requires a foundation plan, you must have it stamped by an engineer or architect (excluding accessory building plans), licensed in the province of Saskatchewan. Most commercial projects $75,000 or over require an architects or engineer’s stamp for the construction drawings.
- Any other information, zoning permissions, permits or plans required under law.
