You need a Building Permit for most projects. No construction can take place until a building permit has been applied for, and obtained in accordance with the Building Code Act. The Building Code Act is enforced by the Municipality of Sioux Lookout and Set Fines are in place for non-compliance.
The Ontario Building Code, the Municipal Zoning By-Law and other by-laws and statues regulate the various aspects of construction.
