The information below has been provided to assist in summarizing the typical requirements to obtain a building permit for plumbing or HVAC systems within the Town of Collingwood. Additional information may be required depending on the application type and individual circumstances.
All drawings submitted for building permit applications are required to be prepared and reviewed by a qualified designer, architect or professional engineer or as outlined in the Ontario Building Code.
All drawings prepared by an architect or professional engineer must be sealed, signed and dated. A general review, where required by the Ontario Building Code, is to be conducted during construction by an architect or professional engineer.

- The name and Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) of the registered firm
- A statement that the qualified person has reviewed and taken responsibility for the design activities
