The Building and Drainage Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of various Provincial legislation and policies including the Ontario Building Code Act, Drainage Act and Planning Act as they apply to buildings, structures and their occupancy and drainage issues as well as numerous municipal by-laws such as the Building Control By-law, Zoning By-law, Nutrient Management By-law and fencing by-laws.
The main role of the Building and Drainage Department is to ensure that the building environment in which we live and work is safe and healthy. This is accomplished through the issuance of building and demolition permits, approval of nutrient management plans and by conducting inspections.
