Noise bylaw exception permit
Most construction activities can take place at any time. However, noisy construction activities can only take place during specific times, under the Noise Control Bylaw.
If you need to do noisy construction activities outside of the allowed times, you will need to get a noise bylaw exception permit.
The times are:
|Day||Private property||City streets, lanes, and boulevards|
|Monday to Friday||7:30am to 8:00pm||7:00am to 8:00pm|
|Saturday||10:00am to 8:00pm||7:00am to 8:00pm|
|Sunday||No construction-related noise permitted||10:00am to 8:00pm|
|Holidays||No construction-related noise permitted||10:00am to 8:00pm|
