Building Permit Status

You can find out the status of your Building Permit using the online Building Permit search. You can use this tool 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Homeowners or contractors can find out if their Building Permit application:

  • was received
  • is being reviewed (pending)
  • is approved

Check if your neighbour has a Building Permit

You can use the online Building Permit search to find out if your neighbour has a Building Permit or has applied for one.

However, we cannot guarantee completely accurate results if you search by address instead of by Permit number. Only permits issued within the last 12 months are shown for addresses.
