For Building Permit information and applications, visit the Licences & Permits Page

The Provincial Government, through the Community Charter and BC Building Regulations, has granted municipalities the power to regulate the construction of buildings and structures and the installation of plumbing, electrical and gas services. Municipalities therefore issue Building Permits as a means of regulating construction to ensure compliance with the applicable Municipal bylaws and Provincial regulations. To ensure that buildings are constructed and facilities are installed in accordance with appropriate regulations, municipalities have also been empowered to undertake inspections.
