- The City’s Building Bylaw is in place to regulate the construction, alteration, repair, or demolition of buildings and structures for the health, safety, and protection of persons and property.
- It is the property owner’s responsibility to apply for and obtain a building permit for projects that require them.
- If anyone is in doubt about whether or not they require a building permit for their project, they should call the City’s Building Department at (250) 992-2111. Taking a few extra minutes at the start of a project saves time and hassle when compared to finding out a permit is required later.
