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 the tent be erected less than 3 m (9'-10") from other structures.

* The aggregate ground area refers to the sum of the total area of all tents on site. Therefore, if the total ground area of all tents on site exceed 60 m2 (645 ft2), then a permit is required.
