In the interest of public safety and as required by the Provincial Safety Codes Act, all building installations require a Building Permit and are subject to appropriate inspections. Building permits are required for the construction, alteration, repair, relocation, demolition or change of occupancy for any building. Permits must be obtained prior to commencement of construction.

Final accreditation with the Alberta Safety Codes Council and approval of final agreements was finalized on April 1, 2015. This contact was renewed in 2018 for another three year term.
