The Building Department is responsible for the regulation and enforcement of the Ontario Building Code. Through the building permit and inspection process, the Building Department ensures that all building projects meet the minimum requirements and standards as set out in the Ontario Building Code as well as any by-laws of the municipality and other regulating bodies. This helps to protect your investments and contributes towards a better standard of development in the community.
Building Permit Application
If you are planning a construction project within the Township of North Stormont, you may require a building permit. Certain building permits may require additional permits and applications that need to be filled out and submitted. For instance, some new construction projects may require an entrance application, civic number and water/sewer connections. Building Permits are available at the Township Office.
Booking an Inspection
Please provide Building Department staff at least 48 hours notice when booking an inspection. This allows for the Department to schedule all requests and provide ample time to review files prior to inspections. To schedule an inspection, please contact the Building Department. Please note that although the Building Department does its best to accommodate requests for inspection, we cannot guarantee specific times.
CMHC Seed Funding
The Seed Funding Program through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation supports affordable housing through interest free-free loans and non-repayable contributions. There are two funding streams: one for new construction/conversions, and one to preserve existing community housing projects. Please visit the CMHC’s website for more information.
