What's Else is New?
Check out what’s new by reading the updates and announcements below:
Redesigned web pages - We've updated our webpages to make it easier for you to find out everything you'll need to know about the permits required for your next project and to make it easier for you to find online help to navigate the permitting system (see below).
Metric Measurement Requirements - As part of our transition to the new system we will also begin transitioning to the metric system for applications.
Metric measurements are required for the following:
• All measurement fields in the new online application form must be entered in metric. These include area and height (for example: building footprint area and height of building)
• All measurements captured in metric on the online application should also be noted in metric on the submitted plans. A soft conversion is recommended and notation on the plans or a cover letter is acceptable for those specific data fields found on the application.
Although we are not seeking a full transition to metric drawings at this time, we are in the process of establishing a transition plan that will meet the needs of industry and the municipality.
Permitting, Planning. Licensing & Compliance (PPLC) Modernization - Planning & Development is undertaking a multi-year initiative to modernize its services. In 2020 we rolled out the new permitting system. Licensing, Compliance and Planning modules are in the works for the near future. View the project page for specific updates.
