Who can apply?
An owner, developer, contractor or anyone authorized to do so on behalf of the owner of the property can apply for a permit. If you are not the owner of the property you can submit a Letter of Authorization (pdf)
How do I apply?
You can apply for your permit by filling out a paper application and submitting your application in person by visiting Inspections & Licensing on the third floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday along with:
- 2 copies of the floor plan including:
- room sizes
- window sizes
- location of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors
- 2 copies of the site plan
- total size of the mobile home
- the CSA (Canadian Standards Association) certification number. This number can be found on the exterior near the front door, in a kitchen cupboard below the sink or on the electrical panel
- the Alberta Municipal Affairs number, showing compliance with the Alberta Building Code
What else should I know?
It may take up to three weeks for an application to be processed so it is recommended that you have your contractors apply for their plumbing and electrical permits while you wait. Once a permit has been reviewed and approved by a Safety Codes Officer it will only be released when all applicable sub trade permits are in place. Once your building permit and all subsidiary permits have been inspected and closed, you will receive a Completion Report. The Completion Report confirms all Safety Code Act disciplines have been finalized and must remain with the property if it is transferred or sold.
What inspections will I need?
The inspections required are specific to each project. A list of required inspections will be printed on your building permit. Any deficiencies identified during the inspection will need to be corrected. Re-inspections or a verification of compliance (written completion notification) may be required. Re-inspection fees or other penalties may apply.
