Will I require a building permit to finish my basement?

You will require a building permit if you are making structural changes (cutting, notching, drilling or relocating exterior foundation wall or load bearing walls/beams), adding a bedroom and/or changing the means of egress requires a building permit. Please complete a Building Permit Exemption form for any other basement work.
