A building permit is used to collect information from anyone undertaking a project large or small to ensure that buildings provide both the people living within and those living adjacent to the building with a minimum level of safety and security. A building permit allows a licensed building official to review and verify that the aspects of construction meet the minimum requirements of the National Building Code of Canada.
A building permit is required whenever you are planning on building, renovating, moving or demolishing a building or planning a change of use or an addition to a new or existing building.

It is important to note that in Saskatchewan, the owner of a property is responsible for ensuring that every building on their property meets the standards imposed by the National Building Code of Canada and local building codes.
