Building Permits

A building permit must be obtained from the Town of Caledon Building Services Section before you begin most construction projects within the municipality.

By obtaining a permit, not only will you comply with the requirements of the Building Code Act, you will also benefit by having your plans and the actual construction of your project reviewed and approved as it progresses.

These reviews and approvals are meant to ensure that the minimum construction standards established by the Ontario Building Code have been met to protect the health, safety and welfare of both inhabitants and users of buildings.
