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.

See the links to the left for specific information regarding building permits.

Any non-agricultural building equal to, or in excess of 100 sq.ft. and any agricultural building equal to, or in excess of 500 sq.ft. requires the approval of a Building Permit prior to commencing construction. Any development less than the above described amounts may still require a Development Permit.

All construction, demolition/removal, or relocation of buildings within Corman Park is governed by the Municipal Building Bylaw and amendments made thereto (see Amendment Bylaw 03/21). The R.M.'s appointed Building Official is MuniCode Services Ltd. who provides building code review and inspection services.
