Green Building Permit Rebate Program
The Township offers financial incentives through building permit rebates for construction of new energy efficient residential dwellings that voluntarily excel under the EnerGuide rating system.
Secondary suites offer many benefits to the community by providing more affordable housing options to residents. All existing and new secondary suites must conform to municipal bylaws and provincial standards for public health and safety.
As of March 2013, all secondary suites, existing or newly constructed, are required to have a Secondary Suite Licence. A Building Permit is required to ensure the secondary suite has been inspected and can be licensed accordingly.
