A building permit grants legal permission to start construction of a building project. It ensures work is structurally sound and safe for habitation. Permits are used to regulate construction and ensure minimum building standards are met.
Typically before receiving a permit to build, floor plans must be reviewed and approved by the building department related to the city in which you live. This ensures compliance with the Ontario Building Code, local Zoning Bylaws, and other Applicable Law. Projects that require architectural plans and building permits include;
-Finished Basement / Second Units
-Decks attached to the home or more than 10’x 10’
-Garage / Carport Addition
-Sheds and Bunkies more than 10’x 10′
-Renovations with supporting walls
-Adding a new window or bathroom
