What is a Zoning Compliance Certificate?

A Zoning Compliance Certificate (ZCC) is intended to confirm for the purchaser that the existing development on the property is compliant with the zoning district in which it is located and that all buildings on the property meet both the Zoning Bylaw regulations as well as the R.M. Building Bylaw requirements. Any development not noted on a ZCC may have been constructed without the required approvals.  A ZCC is generally requested by a prospective property purchaser, a real estate agent or lawyer before a formal offer is made to purchase a property.  This information can help inform your real estate transaction.
