A sewer and water connection permit allows you to connect your new property with our water, sanitary, and stormwater sewer services.
Separate sewer and water connection permits are needed when you are building a new commercial building or renovating an existing building.
Building a house or laneway house?
Houses or laneway houses go through a different application process than commercial sewer and water permits. Apply for a residential sewer and water line connection (Step 2D)
After you get your permit
If you already have your permit and want to know when you'll get your connections, use our questionnaire to find out what happens next.
