- Submit your application through our new online eBuild software or in-person at City Hall. The City will review your application to ensure it meets all building, heritage, zoning, landscaping, engineering, environmental, disposal, assessment, open space and utility regulations and/or bylaws.
Once your application is approved, you will receive an email advising you of the permit fee (be sure to check your junk mail folder). Payment can be made online for eBuild customers, over the phone, or at the permit counter on the main floor of City Hall. Please note, the permit is not issued until you have paid the fee. Once issued, the applicable permits and approved drawings will be sent to you via email.
Construction cannot begin until the permit is issued. If work starts prior to issuing of a building permit, you will be subject to a surcharge.
