Here’s how permits works:

Most building permit applications are completed within 10 business days. Before getting started on your next project, complete the online permit process. 

Cochrane Inspectors work with homeowners and contractors to inspect and approve the design and construction for building, electrical, gas and plumbing work to uphold Provincial and National safety codes and standards.

Permit applications give you:

  • Legal documentation showing compliance with applicable codes and standards.
  • Permit documentation, granting legal permission to start construction.
  • Consultation with Inspectors

Online permit process

All Cochrane permit applications (building, electrical, gas, plumbing) can be filled out and submitted via email, saving paper and dealing with applications efficiently. Payments can be completed over the phone then we’ll email your final permit — no trip to the RancheHouse required!
