Building Permit Inspections
Booking an Inspection:
All inspections are booked through the Building Administrative Assistant at 705-424-9770 extension 128. Inspections are booked 48 hours in advance. You will require your permit number, your address and lot number, the type of inspection(s) that you wish and morning or afternoon inspections. Times are not given, since some inspections, due to many unforeseen circumstances, are inconsistent in providing a specific time frame.
