Which documents are required for a Secondary Suite Permit Application?

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.
