Building Services provide an efficient system of building permit approvals which minimize hazards to persons and property by ensuring that all construction within the Town of Blind River adheres to provincial and municipal regulations.

Through inspections, Building Services ensures that projects are designed and constructed in accordance with the terms and conditions of applicable municipal and legislative requirements. This section issues building, plumbing, demolition, occupancy and other permits governed by the Ontario Building Code.

WHAT IS THE BUILDING CODE?

The Building Code is a regulation outlining the requirements for construction of new buildings and additions or alterations to existing buildings.  The Code is constantly evolving to reflect changes in technology, new building practices and the needs of the public.

The prime purpose of the Ontario Building Code is the protection of people, to allow them to enter, occupy and leave buildings safely. The standards in the Code are centred on Health, Safety, Accessibility and Energy Efficiency.
