Common Building Permit Application Form

Email this page

On July 1, 2005 the provisions of the Building Code Act, 1992 and the Building Code that mandate the use of a common building permit application form (“Application For a Permit to Construct or Demolish”), came into force.

The common application form is submitted to your local municipality / principal authority with your complete building permit application, and not to the Building and Development Branch in the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.  

The common application form streamlines the building regulatory process throughout Ontario by providing certainty to municipalities, designers and builders as to the information required at the time of the building permit application.

The current version of the common building permit application form may be downloaded at the following link:


NOTE: Please do not send in the completed common building permit application to the Building and Development Branch in the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. Please submit it to your local municipality / principal authority.
