Before starting any construction work associated with your secondary suite, you will need a Building Permit. In order to apply for a Building Permit, you must be the owner of the property or produce a Letter of Agent Authorization (PDF) if you are not the owner. You will also need a completed Secondary Suite Permit Checklist (DOC).
Depending on the age of your home or building, for a fee, the Building Division may have a record of your plans and/or form survey. To enquire, please email Building Permits. Please note:
- Homeowners must provide proof of ownership.
- Non-home owners must provide a completed Agent Authorization Form.
- Realtors and prospective buyers must show a valid purchase agreement.
