When applying for a residential home improvement project, please use the Home Improvement Application Form.

Specific project types and requirements to make application for either a building or development permit are found in Section 4 (What are you applying for) on this application form.

The checklists within the application form replace the individual development and building permit requirement lists (also known as CARLs) previously shown in this document library. These checklists are specifically for home improvement projects only.

For more information on applying for a home improvement project, building code, land use bylaw, inspections or illustrated drawings visit

All requirement checklists (CARLs) and forms for any other building or development permit projects are still applicable at this time.

For questions about building, plumbing, electrical or HVAC code or construction methods, building safety and fire regulations, contact the Technical Assistance Centre or contact 311. For all other inquiries (e.g. Land Use Bylaw questions), call 403-268-5311 .

Download a new document each time you need one, to be sure you have the most up-to-date copy.
