Service description


​​
Building Safety reviews building plans to ensure compliance with provincial and national safety codes. We issue permits and follow up with site inspections to ensure construction is safe and to code.

We respond to site safety concerns by providing guidance and direction to ensure a safe resolution. Building Safety also works with industry and partner agencies to identify, educate, and promote safety best practices to reduce incidents and public safety concerns.
