Drawing records of prior permit applications are available. Complete the application form and submit via email to apply for Toronto Building records disclosure.


Records held by municipal governments are regulated by the provincial Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) and the City of Toronto Act. MFIPPA states that, in general, the public has a right to see most of these records, and can obtain copies of them (fees for photocopying may apply – see submitting a request section).

MFIPPA provides for specific exemptions from the general right of access, such as:

  • personal information about an identifiable individual, and
  • records, the disclosure of which could reasonably be expected to endanger the security of a building.
