The Building Division is responsible for the enforcement of the British Columbia Building and Plumbing Codes and bylaws relating to building construction, the review and investigation of complaints on building matters and the technical review of development applications.

A building permit must be obtained before starting:

  • New construction
  • Alterations
  • Reconstruction
  • Demolition
  • Removal, relocation or change of occupancy of any building or structure including excavation or other work related to construction

Building permits ensure that all buildings comply with the safety, health, building and zoning requirements of the FVRD and the Province of British Columbia. Contact us and we can help guide you through the process.
