Paper Submissions for Building Permits
The following building permit types are still available for paper submission at the counter fire damage repair,
motor vehicle impact repair, backwater valves, emergency plumbing repairs, sewer conversions and revisions to existing paper submissions.
Second Units Update
The Licensing By law for Second Units has been repealed so the need to obtain a license is no longer required. However, you still need to obtain a building permit to ensure that your unit meets the current building code and/or fire code requirements. We are in the process of developing a new By law that will require that your unit be on a Registry. To be on the Registry, you will need to have a completed building permit.
Note: the requirement to obtain a Zoning Certificate in conjunction with License is also no longer required, just a building permit.
