Permit reinstatement or extension

A permit will expire if it is found that work authorized by the permit has not started within 180 days of the issue date located on the permit OR if it is found that work authorized by the permit has been started but is since suspended or abandoned for a period of 180 days.

An expired permit may be reinstated at the written request of an applicant within thirty (30) days of expiry provided there have been no changes made in the submission documents. Additional fee(s) are required prior to reinstatement.

Permits may be extended a maximum of two (2) times with the term of each being no longer than 180 days and if the permit has not been revoked, has not expired or there is no change to the scope of work. If a permit has expired, it may not be extended. Additional fee(s) are required prior to an extension.
