This checklist has been provided to assist in summarizing the typical requirements to obtain a building permit if you plan to erect a temporary tent and you answer "yes" to any of the following statements:

  1. Is the tent more than 60 m2 (645 ft2) in aggregate ground area*?
  2. Will the tent be attached to a building?
  3. Will the tent be erected less than 3 m (9'-10") from other structures?

*Aggregate ground area refers to the sum of the total area of all tents on site. If the total ground area of all tents on-site exceeds 60 m2 (645 ft2), a permit is required.
