A building permit is required for any changes, alterations or additions to a structure or property.

Planning to build a deck, add a shed to your yard, or do some renovations? As a homeowner or business, it is your responsibility to obtain a building permit for a variety of projects. Permits help ensure that construction, major renovations, and structures comply with the BC Building Code and City bylaws while also ensuring they are safe for your family, neighbours, and employees.
