TelePermit Inspection System
Toronto Building TelePermit gives building permit holders seven days a week access to request, cancel or reschedule an inspection. Inspections are held Monday to Friday during normal business hours.
TelePermit also lets permit holders listen to inspection results and gives them the option of having a printed inspection status report sent to their fax or email (for the printed report, a fee of $27.50 applies).
Using TelePermit, you can:
- Schedule an Inspection
- Reschedule an Inspection
- Cancel an Inspection
- Review Upcoming Inspections
- Listen to Inspection Results
- Purchase an Inspection Report
TelePermit will prompt you through each step of your call. Whenever you’re prompted for information, you can speak or key in your response – a word, number, or date. You can perform multiple functions during a call. At the end of a function, you can say Main Menu to start a new request.
To use the system, simply call the same number you normally call to book an inspection. That number is listed on the documentation attached to the permit.
Toronto & East York - 416-338-0700
Etobicoke York - 416-394-8055
