Building Permits

While development permits regulate your property's appearance and use in the context of your neighbourhood, building permits make sure that what you build is actually safe.

City building permits make sure that development on your property is up to the standards of the Alberta Building Code.

You can order free online access  or free downloadable copies of the Building Code, Energy Code, Fire Code and Plumbing Code here.
