If electrical wiring exists and you are replacing existing fixtures (ie. switches, plugs, lights), an electrical permit is not required. For any alterations or new wiring, a permit is required.
Who can apply?
A licensed electrical contractor can apply for an electrical permit for a commercial or industrial building. Contact Licensing at 403-342-8182, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us on the third floor of City Hall between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for business licence information.
How do I apply?
You can apply for your permit online using MyPermits or fill out a paper application and submit it in person on the third floor of City Hall between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or email it to email@example.com.
Please note: electrical permits for solar installations must be applied for in person at Inspections and Licensing. Additional documentation and a Safety Codes Officer review will be required.
What inspections will I need?
You will need at least two Safety Code inspections during the course of your electrical installation:
- A rough-in inspection before concealing any work
- A final inspection when all fixtures and covers are installed and all wiring is complete.
You will be required to correct all deficiencies. Re-inspection fees or other penalties may apply.
