Development Permits
The City of Wetaskiwin issues development and building permits for all construction within city limits. The major benefits of obtaining a permit is knowing that the installation will conform to the construction and safety standards that have been accepted under the Safety Codes Act, and that the inspection(s) will be provided by certified safety codes officers.

Permits will be processed upon receipt of permit fees. Development and building permits should be submitted to the City of Wetaskiwin. Information regarding building permits can be found on the IJD Inspections Ltd website. Electrical, gas, and plumbing are processed through IJD Inspections Ltd. Subdivision applications should be submitted to West Central Planning Agency for approval.

No work can commence until the permits have been reviewed and approved. Failure to comply can result in double fees as well as violation enforcement fees.
