What is accreditation? And why does it matter?
When a municipality becomes accredited through the Safety Codes Council, it allows municipalities to ensure all permits and inspections are completed in accordance with the Safety Codes Act. By becoming accredited the County is giving residents a “one stop shop” option for building permits. Becoming an accredited municipality will allow the County of Wetaskiwin to provide a more streamlined service to residents by providing both development and safety code permits at the County office. This also provides residents extra assurance that the necessary permitting is in place and properly reviewed by a qualified inspector. The safety codes program is also audited internally and by the Safety Codes Council to make sure all the requirements have been met.Accreditation
