In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Township of Drummond North Elmsley has closed the Municipal Office to the public until further notice. Building permits and inspections are still being provided subject to some limitations.

The Building Department continues to support construction projects in the Township and is available to provide information, pre-consultation, permit processing as well as inspection services. Check the Building Permits page on our website  for required the forms and applications or call 613-267-6500 if you can’t find what you are looking for.

Applications, building plans and other pertinent information can be received in electronic format or hard copies can be placed in a portable drop box located on a table outside the Township office at 310 Port Elmsley Road. This drop box is only available during business hours from 8:30am-4:30pm.

At the present time, only cheques are accepted for payment and can be mailed or left in the secure drop box location on the wall at the main entrance to the office.

Building inspection services will continue although inspectors will not enter any occupied areas of buildings. Inspectors may request that no trades or site personnel be in the building during the inspection and that the physical distancing of 2-meters will be adhered to while on-site.
