Building and Construction
The Building Department is responsible for enforcement of the Ontario Building Code to ensure that standards for construction and plumbing are consistent throughout the province of Ontario. Staff are a wealth of knowledge and are happy to discuss your project, big or small, in advance to help guide you through the process.
The issuance of building permits for all building, plumbing, and demolition projects are the responsibility of the Chief Building Official.
Building Permit Applications
A building permit is your formal permission to begin construction. It means that plans for any new structure, addition or renovation have been approved by the municipality, and that they comply with the Ontario Building Code, the local zoning bylaw and any other applicable laws and regulations.
The City of Brockville now processes all building permit applications through a cloud based e-permitting software called Cloudpermit.
