The City of Pickering wants you to 'Build Smart. Build Safe'. Whether you're a homeowner with a DIY project, or a professional contractor with years of experience, our friendly, knowledgeable Building Services staff are here to help. Remember: "Measure twice, cut once; 15 minutes now saves 2 hours later", so call us first before you make that first cut.

The Building Services Department is responsible for administering the issuance of Building Permits, including the application process, review of plans for all new construction, and the inspection of building and plumbing systems during construction. We also provide zoning by-law interpretation and zoning compliance checks along with approvals letters for lawyers regarding status of applications and building permits and orders related to a property.
