Ontario Building Codes and Permits

Provincial and Local Building Permits

If you have ever watched any home improvement show on TV or talked to someone who went through a bad home renovation project.

Then you have seen how bad it can be if the renovation company is not trustworthy or knowledgeable. As well, there were typically no building permits issued for the project.

There are codes to follow in Ontario and locally in your city/town.

A home is the largest purchase you will
probably ever make in your lifetime.

The purpose of building codes is to give reasonable assurance that a home is safe from structural failure, fire hazards from electrical and heating systems, electrical shock, and health risks. The permits provide a permanent record of the work performed and inspections conducted on the project.

Building permits are necessary to ensure that zoning requirements, fire and structural safety standards and other building standards are met, primarily for safety reasons.
