The Town of Erin Building Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of various Provincial Regulations and Policies such as the Ontario Building Code, the Building Code Act and Town of Erin Building By-law as they apply to buildings, structures and their occupancy and in accordance with municipal bylaws such as the Building By-law, Zoning By-law and Property Standards By-law. This is accomplished through the review of applications and issuance of permits for buildings, designated structures, on-site septic systems, demolition and change of use and by conducting inspections relating to same.

The permit application, plans review and inspection process ensures that all health and safety standards have been met. This process was established under the Building Code in order to protect the owner and the public from deficient building standards. Depending on the location and type of project, other approvals may be required.

It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that a building permit is obtained prior to any construction.
