The Building and Electrical Permitting Improvement Act

The Manitoba government is moving forward to proclaim sections of The Building and Electrical Permitting Improvement Act, the Permit Dispute Resolution Regulation and the Performance Standards Regulation.

The Permit Dispute Resolution Regulation, under the new Permit Dispute Resolution Act, establishes the appeal process for disputes related to building permitting decisions. Permit applicants will now have a formalized appeal mechanism for cases where they believe a permitting authority is wrong in withholding a permit, or issuing an order on code matters.

The Performance Standards Regulation, under the Buildings Act, specifies the time periods that permitting authorities must respond to applicants, make decisions on applications, and conduct inspections.
These changes will come into force on March 1, 2024.
