Building and By-law Enforcement

The Town’s Building Department assists developers, contractors and residents in obtaining permission to start construction on building projects. Prior to granting approval, the inspector reviews submitted plans for Ontario Building Code and municipal zoning compliance.

The Chief Building Officials (also called Building Inspectors) serve a dual purpose as By-law Enforcement Officers.


Services are provided in the following five areas:

  • Issuing building permits
  • Issuing building-related permits, including demolition, sewage system, pool fence, driveway entrance and sign permits
  • Enforcing zoning provisions
  • Investigating complaints and enforcing by-laws, including noise, fence and animal control
  • Investigating complaints and enforcing property standards by-law
