The Council of each municipality is responsible for the enforcement of the “Building Code Act” and the regulations made thereunder, in the municipality.


No person shall construct or demolish a building or cause a building to be constructed or demolished unless a permit has been issued.


The “Ontario Building Code” is essentially a set of minimum provisions respecting the safety of buildings with reference to public health, fire protection, accessibility and structural sufficiency.  It also sets out technical requirements for the construction (including renovation) and demolition of buildings.  Its primary purpose is the promotion of public safety through the application of appropriate uniform building standards.

Please refer to the “By-law” section of our site, to view our regulations.

All municipalities and provincial ministries are required to have an emergency management program.  The requirements for these programs are set out in the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.  Emergency Management Ontario supports municipalities and ministries in implementing their programs by providing them with advice, assistance, guidelines, training, and other tools.

Most incidents that do occur are handled at the local level.  In the event of a larger incident, the head of council may decide to declare an emergency and assemble local officials at the municipal Emergency Operations Centre.

To support municipalities in times of emergency, the province maintains an extensive emergency management capacity.

For more information on the subject, you may contact the municipal office at 705-339-2521.
