Building Permits
The Town issues building permits. Other permits involving plumbing, gas and electrical inspections are the responsibility of the builder.

You must obtain a permit before you begin your project. In most cases, both a development permit and building permit are required. In some cases, only a building permit is required. To confirm whether your project requires a building permit, please contact the Planning & Development department.

Building permit application forms are downloadable below. Complete and submit your form to Planning & Development along with two sets of detailed construction drawings.


New Home Buyer Protection Act (NHBPA)
The NHBPA came into force on February 1, 2014.  As of that date, all new homes in Alberta must be built with a home warranty in place.  The Act applies only to new homes constructed under a building permit and states that the proposed new home has been registered with the Registrar, and (a) has the required home warranty coverage (b) will be built by an owner builder who has a valid authorization, or (c) is otherwise exempted from having the required home warrant coverage.

More information about the new warranty standards and warranty providers in Alberta is available at: http://www.homewarranty.alberta.ca
