Development and Building Permits

  •  The Development and Building Services Centre is currently closed except for those with an appointment or providing payment.
A multi-year effort to streamline our development and permit processes has been accelerated by our response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and resulted in a digital transformation of how we support businesses and homeowners.

We have shifted from a paper-based system with in-person meetings and review, to a digital ecosystem where people can apply, meet, and participate from anywhere.
