Building & Demolition
You require a permit from the City of Regina if you wish to construct, demolish, build an addition or renovate buildings on your property. The permit allows City of Regina staff to review your plans to ensure they comply with all current building codes, bylaws and other applicable regulations.
Either you, your contractor or your builder may apply for a permit; however, the application must be signed by the legal owner of the property, as well as the applicant. As the building’s owner, you are responsible for complying with all building requirements as per Section 7(1) of Uniform Building and Accessibility Standards Act, which states: "The owner of each building in Saskatchewan shall ensure that the building is designed, constructed, erected, placed, altered, repaired, renovated, demolished, relocated, removed, used or occupied in accordance with the building code."
Adoption of 2015 National Building Code
The Province of Saskatchewan is currently reviewing the adoption date of the 2015 National Building Code. The City of Regina will implement appropriate code review and compliance once this is adopted and implemented by the Province. More details, including when the adoption may take place, will be provided as information becomes available.
Effective immediately, the National Plumbing Code of Canada, 2015, with Saskatchewan amendments is in force.
