Inspections

Are you ready to have your work inspected? If you have a building, electrical, plumbing or gas permit you will need to have at least one or more inspection done to ensure the work was done safely.

How do I book my inspection?

To book an inspection, you will need to call the number based on the type of permit:

Building Permit: 780-992-6207

Plumbing or Gas Permit: 780-992-6207

Electrical Permit: 780-454-5048

You can also email inspection requests.

Please have your permit number ready to book your inspection.

How many inspections do I need?

We include inspection information when we send you your approved permit. The number of inspections depends on the type of work and who is doing the work.

If you are unsure at what stage of your project to book your inspection, call our Building Inspector at 780-998-6198.

How will I know if my work is done right?

We issue an occupancy certificate once the work is completed and compliant. You do not need to apply separately for your occupancy certificate. We start the process as soon as your call for your final inspection.

If you receive an occupancy certificate, you will be given a paper certificate. The occupancy certificate status may also be shown by:

  • A sticker placed on the electrical panel after the final inspection
  • A note on the final inspection report to the property owner
  • A note on the Permit Services Report to the property owner

What if the work is not compliant?

We may grant conditional occupancy and give a timeline to make the work compliant.

What if I move into a house without occupancy granted?

Moving into a house without occupancy can impact you and your family's safety. We see this as a serious offence and can pose fines from $500 to $5000 depending on the offence and number of prior offences.
