Province Holds Consultation in Vaughan-Woodbridge to hear Ideas from the Public and Building Industry

Woodbridge— Ontario is modernizing services related to the Building Code to help speed up the construction of new housing and building projects, while maintaining the same high standards for public safety.

New and enhanced services could include:

• Developing digital tools to support municipal e-permitting and make the Building Code easier to use and understand
• Providing supports to help municipal governments increase the number of building inspectors in Ontario
• Providing supports to small, rural and northern municipalities to help them deliver local building services
If you have ever used building code services, or applied for a building permit, we want to hear from you.

Vaughan-Woodbridge residents are invited to share their Building Code experiences and provide ideas on how to improve services at an information session being held on:

October 16, 2019

From 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Vellore Town Hall,
9541 Weston Road, Woodbridge, L4H 3A5

“In 2018, there were over 131,000 building permits issued in Ontario with a total estimated construction value of $38 billion, said Michael Tibollo MPP Vaughan-Woodbridge. “Some of those permits are issued to people building an addition on their home, adding a backyard deck, or creating a basement apartment. We want to hear their experience, so we can work to modernize and improve service.”

Residents can also provide feedback online at Ontario.ca/buildingtransformation until November 25, 2019.
