Notice for Applicants: The RDCK cautions applicants that they should expect longer than normal permit processing and issuance timelines, due to current staffing shortages. There is a scarcity of experienced and qualified building officials across the province, and the RDCK is not immune to this. We are engaged in active recruitment of building officials and our current staff are doing their best to process and issue permits in a timely fashion. Thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
Attention to sustainability in planning and building your project will create a quality building with reduced long-term utility costs. Use these checklists to help plan, design and build with goals of sustainability and energy-efficiency.
