Every permit requires at least one or more inspections. It is the responsibility of the owner, or a representative designated by the owner, to arrange these inspections.

Remember to:

  • Arrange an inspection prior to covering any work.
  • Provide 48 hours' notice and quote your permit number.
  • Keep approved permit drawings at the construction site and make them available to the inspectors.
  • Use a separate sheet for each requested day.

Covering work prior to inspection may result in delays, the removal of finishes, and/or prosecution under the Building Code Act.

You may request inspections at any time by faxing the request form to 905-623-1824. We must receive your fax prior to 3 p.m. on the business day before you require an inspection. If you do not have a fax machine, call 905-623-7876 to leave a message on the answering machine.
