Building Permit fees are due at the time of application. No construction, including foundation or excavation work can begin until the appropriate permit has been issued.

Failure to obtain proper Building Permits can result in costly construction delays, legal action and/or the removal of work already completed. Anyone who starts construction without a permit may be subject to a penalty of 200 per cent of the original permit fee or $400, whichever is greater.
