A building permit from the City of Winnipeg provides legal authorization to begin construction of a building project. If you are going to build, add, renovate or alter any part of your building or residence, or perform work on electrical or plumbing systems, ensure that a permit has been obtained prior to starting any work. Permits provide a mechanism for the City to engage in a review of plans and/or audits of construction through inspections to help ensure that the work is in compliance with all building and electrical codes, and other relevant City by-laws such as zoning.
A permit may be required for work and special events
