Building Code Act By-law     5.1 Fees for permits:  
  New construction of, and additions to, residential buildings, community centers, cottages and churches $25.00 + $0.12 per square foot
  New construction of, and additions to, commercial, industrial and other buildings not otherwise specified $50.00 + $0.15 per square foot
  New construction of, and additions to, sheds, decks, storage buildings, garages, barns, and other farm, forestry or fishing buildings not designated for human occupancy $25.00 + $0.06 per square foot
  Repairs, renovations or alterations to all existing buildings $25.00 + $2.50 per $1000.00 of value of construction; except that for non-structural repairs, renovations or alterations where the estimated value of construction is between $1000.01 and $5000.00, the fee shall be $25.00
  Relocation of mobile homes and mini-homes where there is no finished basement

$50.00

  Additional fee where construction has been started prior to issuance of building permit. This fee reflects the heightened municipal cost and risks where a builder requests a permit (and therefore the associated inspection services) after already having started construction. It does not preclude prosecution for non-compliance, and does not prevent the Building Official from requiring construction work to be undone in whole or in part to inspect conditions not otherwise observed. $50.00 + applicable building permit fees
  Tents or Air supported structures $50.00
  Pools $25.00
  Demolition of building/structures $25.00
