Toronto Building works with the public, designers and the building industry to create a safe, healthy, sustainable and accessible built environment.
The Ontario Building Code Act establishes the Division’s primary responsibilities, which are:
- review applications to demolish, alter or construct buildings and issue permits
- conduct inspections during construction to make sure work being done is in compliance with the Building Code and issued permits
- if necessary, issue orders to enforce compliance
In addition to the roles prescribed by the Ontario Building Code Act, Toronto Building administers and enforces the City of Toronto’s Sign By-law.
