Deck Notes;

When is a permit required?


Typically, in most areas of Canada, a deck does NOT need a permit when:

  • It is no higher than 0.6 m (2’-0”) above grade at any point, and it does not have a roof.

    • If your deck has a roof that is attached to your house, visit the additions page.

    • If your deck has a roof but is not attached to your house, visit the garage, shed, greenhouse, carport page.

  • A balcony will always require a permit.

In most situations decks only require a building safety approval (building permit). If your design or location does not meet land use bylaw specifications you will also require planning approval (development permit).
