Main Areas of Service

Issue Building Permits

Building Inspection will assist applicants in completing the building permit application. The application and supporting documentations must be submitted and the necessary fees paid (the City of Moncton accepts cash, debit, cheque, or credit card payments). Building Inspection will then follow the permit process, and upon verifying compliance with applicable by-laws, issue the permit.
