Book an Inspection

It is the responsibility of the person to whom the permit has been issued to let the Building department know when they are ready for an inspection. A number of inspections at different stages of construction are required by the Ontario Building Code. 

All inspection requests are to be scheduled through the Cloudpermit Portal.  Log into Cloudpermit and request the required inspection in the building permit workspace.   

We understand that not everyone has access to or are well-versed in the online sphere, so traditional processes for paper applications and in-person payments will still be available at the Township Office should you prefer that method.  Please contact the Building Department at 905-985-7346 ext. 169 or
