Certificate of Compliance application process

If the application is mailed in or if further review is required (i.e. development permit needs to be ordered from storage or information is required from the surveyor/owner/lawyer) the processing time will take approximately 5 to 10 working days.

If the application is submitted in person on the 3rd floor at the Development and Building Approvals counter the compliance may be granted instantaneously if further review is not required.

If the subject property is an apartment building, a commercial building or an industrial building the application can be expedited with the processing time being 7 days. Please see the Fee schedule for the price of an expedited compliance.

Low density residential compliances cannot be expedited. However, if the applicant has the approved, stamped development permit plans they may bring in the plans along with the Real Property Report to reduce the processing time.

If the existing development complies with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw, compliance will be granted and the applicant will be notified that the Certificate of Compliance is ready. If the application has not been picked up within 10 working days the application will be mailed to the customer.

Applications may be picked up at:
