Important Updates

  • Dampproofing Inspections: As of December 2, 2021, all damp proofing inspections are to be scheduled in association with the building permit rather than the drainage permit. If booking online, please login to the building permit account associated with the subject property in order to schedule the damp proofing inspection. If sending in an email request, please reference the building permit number.
  • Inspections During the Pandemic: All construction sites, whether for new construction or renovations, must adhere to WorkSafeBC guidelines to preserve workers’ safety on site. Inspections may be postponed or cancelled if COVID-19 protocols are not being followed.
  • Electrical Inspection Requests: An Electrical Contractor Authorization & Declaration of Compliance (PDF) form is required for each electrical inspection request.  If this document is not submitted, the inspection may not be completed.

Once your permit has been issued and work completed, it must be inspected.
