Building Department staff welcome your feedback. Share your comments in the discussion forum below. Comments will be reviewed and evaluated and the findings will be take into consideration when staff bring forward the new fees for Council's decision on May 25, 2021.

Background

At the March 11 Committee of the Whole meeting, staff from the Building and Planning departments presented a joint report about setting new fees for both building and planning applications. Council directed staff to initiate the mandatory public consultation process in the Ontario Building Code for the proposed new building fees.

At the current level of service provided, the Building Department is unable to continuously meet the timelines for issuing building permits and performing the required inspections as set out in the Ontario Building Code due to the increase in the number of building permits being issued and the added number of inspections.
