How long does it take to get my permit?
Building permit delays are due to incomplete drawings, zoning compliance matters, and other applicable law approvals (such as City Planning or Conservation Authority Permits) not being fully completed before the building permit application is filed.
Complete applications are usually processed in the following number of business days:
|Houses and other small projects
|Small buildings other than houses
Incomplete applications (where documents, zoning or applicable law approvals are incomplete) cannot be processed and issued until the outstanding requirements are fully completed. Incomplete applications may be deemed abandoned if they are not completed after 6 months.
