Building Division staff offer a range of services to builders and individuals that wish to build and/or renovate in the Town of LaSalle, including:

  • issuing permits for the construction, renovation, demolition, and certain change of use of buildings and structures;
  • issuing permits for the installation, alteration, extension, or repair of on-site sewage systems;
  • issuing permits for fence enclosures for swimming pools;
  • carrying out inspections to ensure compliance with the Ontario Building Code; and
  • issuing Occupancy letters.

Building permits are required to protect the interests of both individuals and the community as a whole. By reviewing and approving building plans before any work is done, and by carrying out inspections while construction is underway, building staff can ensure that buildings comply with:

  • the Ontario Building Code, which sets standards for the design and construction of buildings to meet objectives such as health, safety, fire protection, accessibility, and resource conservation;
  • the local zoning by-law and other planning controls on buildings; and
  • other applicable legislation, including conservation authority approvals and certain requirements under the Environmental Protection Act.
