What Does the Building Inspector Do?

A building inspector reviews projects during different stages of construction to ensure work complies with the Ontario Building Code and the plans originally submitted with the building permit application. The inspector may visit a site several times depending on the project. They must be able to see the work that requires the inspection. All inspections needed for your building project will be marked on the backside of your Building Permit. An inspector requires a minimum of 48 hours' notice to book an inspection.
