Building Inspections

The Building Section issues building permits and collects applicable securities. Once a building permit has been issued, a Building Inspector will visit the site at scheduled points during construction to ensure that construction conforms to the approved plans, conditions of the building permit, and the requirements of the BC Building Code.

To book an inspection, please contact the Building Section at 250-708-2256 or 

The successful completion of the building permit process results in the building receiving final approval. This building permit becomes part of the permanent record in the property file. This information is important to future property owners since it assures them that the work was done in accordance with applicable zoning, health and life-safety regulations.
