Extended Hours for Homeowner Inspections
Effective Monday, October 19, 2020 all in-home inspection appointments will be conducted virtually until further notice. Inspections of unoccupied homes will continue, as will on-site inspections for urgent situations.
Commercial inspections of unoccupied dwellings, new construction, and alterations in existing buildings, are subject to COVID-19 pre-screening at time of inspection requests and at time of inspection.
The Zoning & Permits Branch, located at 31-30 Fort Street, is not accepting walk-in customers. Permit applications are being processed; however, applications must be submitted digitally.
Please be advised that all evening and Saturday time slots are suspended until further notice.
We recognize that homeowners need flexibility in arranging inspections. That is why we offer extended hours for homeowners across Winnipeg.
