Building Department

Residents, who are considering building, or renovating over 108 square feet (10sqm) must obtain a building permit and pay all fees prior to commencement of any construction. We recommend you contact the building department in your early planning stages so we can help identify the steps for your consideration and this will avoid any potential costly delays and disappointments.  Building By-Law 2019-16

We wish to emphasize that the Building Department enforces the Ontario Building Code. Questions concerning Zoning or land use By-Laws should be directed to the Planning Department and any questions concerning property drainage, and grading should be directed to the Roads Department.

Please note that while we strive to keep all forms and applications available online up to date, it is advisable to contact the township office for updated forms and prices for all packages.
