A Building Permit is separate from a Development Permit. A Building Permit refers to building construction and compliance with the National Building Code of Canada and Uniform Building & Accessibility Standards. Almost every application for a Development Permit also requires the submission of a Building Permit.
Please contact the R.M. Planning Department to determine whether or not your proposed project needs a Development Permit, a Building Permit, or both. Click for Info on Development & Building Permits
The application fee is $125 and payable at the time you submit your application. The Building Permit fee for residential, commercial or industrial permits is $5.50 per $1,000 of construction value. For example a structure with a value of construction of $250,000 will result in permit fees of $1,375.00 [($250,000 / $1,000) x $5.50].
Please ensure you are providing yourself ample time prior to when you want to begin construction for approval. Contact the Planning Department anytime for an update on current approval timeframes. Click for More Info on Building Permit Application
An extension can also be granted during the 1 year time period if you require more time. For example, if due to financial concerns you have delayed construction, but now are in a position to start and need more time, the Planning Department can grant an extension.
An extension may be applied for with a signed, written request to the R.M. from the landowner.
Building permits are valid for the duration of the building process. As long as you have started construction and continue construction, as per your conditions of approval, you can take as long as you want to complete your project. However, if work on the project stops for more than 12 months the permit will expire and a new permit will have to be issued to complete the project.
Please note, you cannot occupy or use the building or structure until construction is complete and the permits have been closed. The R.M. Planning Department recommends completing all Building Permits in a timely manner.
