How do I get a Building Permit?

Imagine your project as a blockbuster movie with a unique storyline. The permitting process has its own script, typically following five steps:

  • Determining Compliance: Check if your project aligns with zoning and applicable laws. It's like ensuring your script meets Hollywood standards.
  • Plan Creation: Draft your plans or bring in the design dream team. Think of it as creating the visual storyboard for your deck epic.
  • Permit Application: Apply for a building permit, navigating the bureaucratic maze at the City of Toronto. This step is like sending out your screenplay for approval.
  • Construction Commences: The cameras start rolling as you begin construction, with inspections at key moments—think of them as the plot twists in your deck adventure.
  • Closing the Loop: The grand finale, calling for the final inspection to ensure your deck meets the highest standards. It's like the premiere night where your deck steals the show.
