Toronto Building works with the public, designers and the building industry to create a safe, healthy, sustainable and accessible built environment.

The Ontario Building Code Act establishes the Division's primary responsibilities, which are:

  • review applications to demolish, alter or construct buildings and issue permits
  • conduct inspections during construction to make sure work being done is in compliance with the Building Code and issued permits
  • if necessary, issue orders to enforce compliance

In addition to the roles prescribed by the Ontario Building Code Act, Toronto Building administers and enforces the City of Toronto's Sign By-law.
