Online Inspection Requests allow Sign/Building Permit holders to request, cancel or re-schedule an inspection. Inspections are carried out Monday to Friday during regular business hours.


Whenever a Sign Permit is issued, one or more inspections will follow. Your Inspector will be listed on the Sign Permit, and you can contact them to arrange for a footings/foundation inspection for ground signs, and a final inspection for all signs once the installation has been completed.

Sign By-law Unit Inspectors also carry out pro-active inspections to ensure that signs in Toronto comply with the Sign By-law and Ontario Building Code, and do not present any health or safety concerns.
