The province of Saskatchewan ensures a minimum standard for construction of new buildings under The Uniform building and Accessibility Standards Act. Bylaw 3-2011 is a bylaw to administer and enforce these safety standards within the municipality. The RM has contracted building officials, licensed by the province, to ensure that buildings under construction or being moved into the municipality comply with the National Building Code. Our commercial building inspector is Dale Wagner, Wagner Inspection Services; our residential building inspector is Norbert LeBlanc of Humboldt.

Agricultural Buildings: Non-commercial agricultural structures (excluding residences) are exempt from building permits.

Agricultural residences: recent legislation updates state that all residences, regardless of Agricultural status, must apply for a building permit and are subject to inspections. This includes any ag shops, barns, etc., with sleeping quarters. We are no longer permitted to provide exemptions for this.

All non-agricultural buildings (dwellings and commercial buildings) built or moved in to the RM that are larger than 100 square feet require a Building Permit application.

To apply for a Building Permit, the RM requires the application form, a Site Plan, and a copy of the building plans. The Site Plan should show the distances of the building from the property lines, any existing structures or bodies of water, the location of driveway, and if known, any utility lines that are on the property. There are no application fees for building permits. Building permits will be presented at the next regular meeting of council.

Once the contracted building inspector has completed the plan review, a fee for service schedule will be billed to the applicant. Permit fees are based on the estimated cost of construction. The building permit will not be issued until all permit fees have been received.

A copy of the Plan Review Report will be included with the permit. It will be the Property Owner’s responsibility to ensure the building is constructed to meet building codes and that all requirements set out in the Plan Review Report are met. The Plan Review Report will include an inspection schedule. The owner of the property will be responsible for contacting the inspector to book all necessary inspections and to ensure that all deficiencies reported in the inspections are completed prior to proceeding to the next step of construction.
