WHAT IS A BUILDING PERMIT?


A Building Permit is a formal approval from your local municipality that allows you to proceed with construction, demolition, addition or renovation on your property. As part of the Building Permit process, Vancouver Building Permit Department must review your permit drawings to make sure that they are according to the Building Code, local Zoning By-laws and other Applicable Law.

WHO NEEDS A BUILDING PERMIT?


If your project involves any additions, demolitions, alterations or major changes to your property's structure or its mechanical systems, you are required to apply for an appropriate permit from your Municipality Building Permit Department. However, in some cases you might not be required to obtain a permit. You can contact us to find out if you need a permit or not.
