Building and Planning


1. Why do I need a building permit?

Building permits are necessary to ensure that zoning requirements, fire and structural safety standards and other building standards are met, primarily for safety reasons.  Zoning requirements are contained in municipal by-laws and the building standards are contained in the Ontario Building Code.  This code is Provincial regulation administered by the Housing Development and Buildings Branch of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.  Under the Building Code Act,local governments are given authority for the enforcement of the Ontario Building Code within their municipality. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing maintains a website which contains useful information about the Ontario Building Code at www.obc.mah.gov.on.ca.


2. When do I need a building permit?

Under the Ontario Building Code Act, a Building Permit is required for the construction or alteration of any structure over 10 m2 (108 Sq.Ft.) in area; for example, a structure with outside dimensions greater than 3.16m x 3.16m (10.37 ft. x 10.37 ft.).  However all structures must still comply with zoning requirements.  For information please contact the Building Department at (807) 683-4545 or visit our building and planning page
