Building Department

The Building Department provides the best professional service to administer and enforce the Ontario Building Code.

Through the examination of plans, issuance of building permits, and performing inspections, we ensure compliance with building standards of the Ontario Building Code and ensure health and safety, fire protection and structural sufficiency in buildings in which we live, work, and play.

We are here to offer zoning inquiries, building code information and technical advice and to be of assistance during the entire construction process. We also enforce property standards by-laws and investigate public complaints. If you need more information we invite you to contact us.

The Ontario Building Code is available on the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Ministry of Housing website at
