Refer to Building Codes & Bylaws
Building codes and bylaws provide the regulations and standards that architects, builders and homeowners must meet when designing constructing or remodelling buildings.
No matter what part of construction the code or bylaw refers to — construction, property maintenance, fire prevention or plumbing — the codes and bylaws all have the same purpose: to protect the health safety and welfare of the building’s occupants.
Not all bylaws involving building or construction are listed here; use the City's online Contact Us form or phone at 306-777-7000 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. (holidays excepted).
