Ontario Building Code - Permits and Inspections to Continue

2020-05-14 9:40:43 AM


Earlier this week on May 11th, 2020, amendments were made to Ontario’s Building Code under O.Reg 209/20. .

This amendment requires that municipal building officials must continue to review permit applications and conduct inspections for all construction projects. This reinforces that all the time periods set out in the Building Code will remain in effect, even if municipal offices are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, conditional permits can be issued for non-essential construction projects during the outbreak. The amendment remains in effect until municipalities are open to the public for in-person services.
