Not sure about how the building process works?  What permits will you need and why?  How do you find out?  It's easy!  Simply take some time to browse these pages to find all the information you need to get started on your next project - big or small, the City of Brantford is here to help you every step of the way.

It's our duty to ensure that all building construction governed by a building permit meets the minimum acceptable standards as required by statutory authority under the Building Code Act.  This is done through processing all building permits, and reviewing all applications - surf around in this section or contact the City's building department for more detailed information on how this process works.  We're here to help!

Did you know that renovation programs are available for low-income households, seniors and persons with disabilities?  Funded by the Government of Canada and distributed by the provinces and territories, financial assistance is offered in the form of forgivable loans or non-repayable contributions.  Find out more about Brantford's Homeowners Assistance Programs.
