Do I need permits for my renovation? why? when? how?

In Ontario, building permits are typically required for any construction or renovation work that involves:

  1. Structural changes, including alterations to the building's foundation, load-bearing walls, or roof structure

  2. Electrical systems, including new wiring, service upgrades, or alterations to existing systems

  3. Plumbing systems, including alterations to the water supply, drainage, or venting systems

  4. HVAC systems, including installation or alterations to heating, ventilation, or air conditioning systems

  5. Fire and life safety systems, including the installation or modification of fire alarms, sprinkler systems, or emergency lighting

It's important to note that building codes and permit requirements can vary depending on your location and scope of the renovation project. Therefore, it's recommended that homeowners consult with their local city building department or a qualified professional to determine whether their renovation project requires permits and to obtain the necessary permits before starting the work..
