Changes to Provincial Code Regulations

Some recent changes to provincial regulations will make it easier for residents to complete home renovations and upgrade projects!

Some projects that used to require a building permit may no longer need one. The $5,000 threshold has been eliminated for non-structural residential projects, and has been increased to $10,000 for non-structural commercial projects. New regulations are also in place for "tiny homes".

As always, it is best to call and check with the Planning & Development Department about the permits you need BEFORE starting home or commercial projects, and we encourage you to let us know when you have something coming up.

For more information, or to talk with us about your upcoming project give us a call at 902-679-2535 or drop in!
