Toronto Building enforces compliance with the Ontario Building Code, which is achieved through mandatory inspections for building permits and demolitions, as well as investigations of emergency orders and work without permits.

Make sure you review and comply with the Construction Site Requirements & Good Neighbour Guidelines before you begin construction.

Note: Property owners are required to schedule a final inspection upon completion of their project to close the permit.
