Residential Permits in Calgary

With low population density and plentiful housing, Calgary is a prime place to live in Canada. This makes it a particularly appealing location for both families and property developers alike. This also means that the city has defined a range of different Calgary-based building permits that have been designed to meet residential requirements.

Commercial Permits in Calgary

From large-scale office buildings to small stores in Calgary, development permit applications are a requirement for commercial property owners looking to transform an existing building or expand upon a space. Calgary-based permits for basement development have also become increasingly common for renovations that are expanding into space below commercial properties, as well as renovation permits for improving and reworking older buildings.

As is the case with many cities, Calgary has stringent requirements for permits. Failure to adhere to the information stipulated on a Calgary building permit application form can lead to stopped or slowed work.
