Over Dimension Moving Permits

All buildings must receive approval for relocation prior to permit issuance. The relocation of a building requires a building permit and all buildings must be inspected and approved for relocation into a new area of the City.

If you have a load that is over height, width, length or weight, or if you are moving a building, you must contact the Public Works Department in advance to obtain a permit. Please be sure to review requirements carefully. For more information, please also see the City's Over-dimension loads policy and the General Permit Requirements. 

See the Traffic Restriction Notices for information about traffic detours and construction delays to ensure the safest route is utilized. Please note that if there are lane restrictions between 12th and 15th Street on 2nd Avenue, or on the Diefenbaker Bridge, an escort is required during pre-scheduled times. Haulers must contact Public Works to make arrangements.

All haulers require a moving permit. Additional permits are required for building, overweight and over dimension loads. Additional permits are charged a $20 fee plus an additional $5.00 for every 500kg gross overweight. 

The City reserves the right to refuse passage to any hauler. The ultimate responsibility for the safe transportation of the load is on the hauler.

8:00am - 9:30am

Alternate River Crossings
