Once the Pre-Application Fee is paid, Applicants will receive an email invitation with instructions on how to upload the digital drawings and documents required for the permit type they are requesting (see our Guide to Building Permits).
All uploads must comply with the requirements outlined in our ePLAN Submission Standards for Building Permits, Sign Permits, and Zoning Preliminary Review. Review this document for more information on required file types, border standards, and file naming standards.
Staff will be notified once the Applicant completes the Applicant Upload task and will conduct a pre-screen of your request. This is a cursory review of your uploaded drawings and documents to ensure that you have met the City of Markham’s Submission Standards for electronic plans review.
In the event that the submission does not comply, the Applicant will be notified by email that they have a Pre Screen Corrections Task to complete. Items to be corrected will be in the form of Checklist Items.
