TOWN OF BOW ISLAND

All Permit Applications to be submitted to the Town of Bow Island as well as all permit fees. Once paid and information submitted, they are forwarded to our team for processing and issuance. Copies of your permit documents will be emailed to you, if an email is provided. Otherwise copies will be mailed or faxed.

How long is your permit good for? Dependent on your scope of work and project-your permit has a timeframe upon which work needs to be completed. This is in accordance with the Municipality’s Quality Management Plan, which sets the framework for when projects need to be inspected and how long the permits can be valid for. This timeframe is noted on your permit. You may receive an extension if needed. This needs to be supplied to our office in writing and noting the additional time you are requesting.

When should you call for an inspection? Your required inspection stage(s) may be found on your permit under “Permit Conditions”. You will also note on your permit that work needs to start within 90 days and must continue every 120 days. This is in accordance with the Safety Codes Act, legislated by the province of Alberta. We follow up on all permits issued to ensure this criteria is met and that your project is moving forward and to ensure no vital inspection stages are met. If any scope or needs of your project change, where these timeframes cannot be met, please contact our team to arrange and establish alternate arrangements.

Please feel free to contact our team for any questions or additional details or contact the Town of Bow Island at 403-545-2522.
