The City of Markham issues permits and licences for the development, construction and use of all commercial, industrial or residential properties and buildings. The permits set standards for the health and safety of the citizens of City of Markham and ensure Markham's reputation as a great place to live, work and play.
Permit and licence approvals are made based on legislation from the Municipal Government Act, Municipal Bylaws, the Markham Zoning Bylaw, and Ontario Building Code.
We consolidated permit and licence applications so that the customer can apply for any of the following permits and licences at one central location: development, building, and mechanical permits, business, personal, taxi and pet licensing, and inspections.
