Bulletin Le Citoyen

Permits and inspections division

Are you thinking of renovating, erecting, or transforming a building? Before you get started, visit this web site to see whether you need to acquire a permit and to obtain a wealth of information with regard to your project.

The Borough’s by-law and inspection experts give you information, take your permit applications and building inspection requests, and provide follow up. They also see to it that the provisions of the Règlement sur la salubrité, l’entretien et la sécurité des logements (in French), the by-law concerning the hygiene, maintenance, and safety of residential dwellings, are respected.

Follow up of inspection requests
Once an inspection request is submitted to the permits and inspection division, an inspector is sent to examine the building in order to insure that it meets the appropriate standards and that it is safe. For instance, he might be summoned because of a defective heating system, a dangerous wall, or unhygienic conditions. If the inspector deems the complaint legitimate, the division notifies the owner (or the tenant, if the latter is at fault) so that the required repairs may be undertaken within a specific time frame.

As of February 22nd 2012, if repairs required by the permits and inspections division have not been executed within the prescribed delay, owners or tenants, depending on the case, will be billed $125 for any subsequent inspection and $125 for the issuance of any subsequent notice.
