In some cases we do not require an occupancy permit (such as for houses and laneway houses), but the property owner or their contractor may want to get an occupancy permit for other reasons. In these cases, additional fees will apply.
When an occupancy permit is not required under a City by-law (such as for houses and laneway houses) and the property owner or their contractor may want to get an occupancy permit for other reasons, a fee of $267 will apply.
If an occupancy permit is required under the by-law, you will not be required to pay any additional fees.
If you don't already have an online account with us and your project requires a fee, please set up an online account using our instructional guide PDF file (723 KB). Please set up an account prior to applying. The email used should be included in the application form.
Do you have a large multi-residential or commercial property where required landscaping cannot be provided prior to the proposed occupancy date? You must arrange for an agreement to complete outstanding landscaping before an occupancy permit can be issued. Please email email@example.com for further details.
