A building permit is your formal permission to begin construction, demolition, addition or renovation work on your property.
As part of the building permit process, the City of Pembroke staff must review your plans to ensure they comply with the Ontario Building Code, local zoning by-laws, and other Applicable Law.
Building permits regulate the type of construction allowed in a community and ensure that minimum building standards are met. The permit process protects the owner’s interests, the community, and it helps to ensure that any new construction is appropriate and safe.
