Demolition permits are required for all buildings greater than 10 square metres (108 square feet), with the exception of farm buildings.
The first step in obtaining a demolition permit is to complete the Required Clearances for Demolition Permit form. This form can be obtained online, or in the Building Division office. Once the four steps outlined on the clearance form are complete, you are ready to apply for a demolition permit. For additional details, please refer to the 'Demolition Permit Process' information package on this page.
