Compliance Letters and Building Records

Compliance Letters

The Town can issue compliance letters that provide information about a number of topics, including:

  • building permits
  • building violations
  • property standards orders
  • Zoning By-law violations

A compliance letter can also confirm if a subdivision agreement is being complied with, if there are amending agreements registered on title, if there are releases available from an agreement on title and if the Town holds sufficient securities to secure the obligations within the subdivision agreement.

If a property is listed on the Heritage Register, if it is designated, if it contains a registered archaeological site or if it is known to be (or has been) a cemetery, a compliance letter can confirm that. 

Such a letter can also confirm whether a property has an Official Plan designation and a particular zoning

A compliance letter can also be used to establish

  • an inspection station
  • a propane cylinder exchange program
  • a day nursery, or
  • a before/after school program
