Amendments to Ontario’s Building Code Related to Building Permits and Inspections Code News Issue 299

On May 11, 2020, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing filed Ontario Regulation 209/20, which made amendments to Ontario’s Building Code related to the delivery of building code services, such as reviewing building permit applications and conducting inspections.
