Building Permits

A Building Permit is separate from a Development Permit. A Building Permit refers to building construction and compliance with the National Building Code of Canada. Every application for a Development Permit to construct, erect, place, alter, repair, renovate or reconstruct a building also requires the submission of a Building Permit. All construction, demolition, or relocation of buildings within the R.M. of Corman Park is governed by the Municipal Building Bylaw.

The Municipal Building Bylaw requires that any non-agricultural construction equal to, or in excess of 100 square feet and any agricultural building construction equal to, or in excess of 500 square feet shall require the submission of a Building Permit Application Form prior to commencing construction.

The R.M.'s appointed Building Official is MuniCode Services Ltd. Building inspection services are provided by MuniCode during construction for all non-agricultural buildings. An inspection schedule will be provided with your Development Permit. Visit MuniCode's website for more information.

A list of frequently requested numbers including the Planning Department, MuniCode and various service and utility providers can be found on the Before You Build document.
