When you have a building permit it is your responsibility to arrange for the required inspections listed on the back of your permit card. Inspections must be completed as required by the Ontario Building Code.

Ensure your permit card is posted at all times during construction or demolition in a visible location on the property for which the permit is issued. One copy of the approved permit drawings and documents is to stay on the property and be available to the building inspector.

Work on your building permit must start within six months of the issued date listed on the permit card and must be completed within one year of the issued date.
