Building Permit Fees

Building Permit Fees

Building permit fees depend on the floor area, scope of work and the type of building being constructed or altered. Please refer to the Fee Schedule in the Building By-Law for current rates.

Acceptable forms of payment include cash, cheque, or debit card.

3 Day Permits

Building Division offers a 3 Day review process, which can expedite the review of certain types of permit applications.  Typical examples of permit applications eligible for 3 Day review include:


  • Single detached dwellings
  • Small commercial/industrial renovations requiring architectural review only.
  • Small residential projects

Consult with your plan examiner when applying to determine if a 3 Day permit is possible for your application.


  • Additional permit fees are applicable to 3 Day applications.  (See By-law B-6, Schedule A for current fee)
  • All applicable drawings and information must be provided at time of application.  Partial submissions are not permitted.
  • All required approvals must be in place prior to applying. (eg.  Zoning, site plan approval)
  • A 3 Day application expedites the review process only.  Issuance of a building permit will proceed once all approvals are in place and any deficiencies have been addressed.
  • Acceptance of 3 Day applications is subject to staff availability at the time of application.
