BUILDING & ELECTRICAL PERMIT
Planning to Build?
Building permits are required throughout the province for the construction of a new building or structure as well as the demolition, relocation, alteration or replacement of an existing building or structure.
As the homeowner, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary permit(s). If you choose to have your contractor take out a permit on your behalf, make sure that it's done before the project gets started. The process may also be longer for commercial, industrial or public buildings which usually require specific approvals.
Within an area with a Rural Plan, a proposed development or structure may require a rezoning or variance. To view where there are plans in effect in our region, please take a look at to our land use plans . If you require a variance or rezoning, please fill out the appropriate form and return to our office. If you have any questions, you can contact our office at (506) 432-7530 or email@example.com.
When obtaining a building permit, you can help the process by being prepared. Information you may need when applying for a Building Permit:
