Under Ontario Law, inspections are mandatory at certain stages of construction. With your building permit you will be issued an Inspection Requirements Checklist indicating the inspections your permit requires. It is the owner’s responsibility to contact the building department to request any inspection that has been checked on the list. The Building department is to be given a minimum of 2 days notice for each inspection.
Accessibility to buildings by people with impaired mobility can be greatly improved by eliminating barriers in the design process. For assistance in designing and building barrier-free buildings, please refer to the Building Guide to Barrier-Free Design.
