Buildings and construction in Olympic Village

Learn how to request copies of building plans, building and development permits, and property records (including outstanding bylaw orders, zoning, approved use, issued permits, and more).

Building plans

The City typically has building plans for work done under permits for most commercial buildings, condos, and one- and two-family dwellings constructed since 1979.

You can access or get digital copies of your plans in PDF file format at our Development and Building Services Centre (contact on this page). Copies of plans are for reference only.

Permits

Copies of permits are available in person for a fee at the Development and Services Building Centre (contact on this page).
