For information specific to the proposed project on your property, call the Development and Building Services Centre at 604-873-7611.
Our staff will help you determine which permits you need, and help you navigate through the process, so you can speak to your contractor with confidence.
Related permits and deposits
If you need a building permit, you will likely need at least one "trades" related permit (gas, electrical, plumbing, tree removal, or other). Depending on the work proposed, the property zoning, and other factors, you may also need a development permit. Some types of projects qualify for a development-building (combined) permit.
A building permit must be issued before any work can take place.
Construction damage deposit
A construction damage deposit may also be required.
