 Building Inspection Checklists:

During the course of construction and at the time of building occupancy, building officials inspect a building for compliance with the building permit documents and the Ontario Building Code. We receive many requests from builders, architects, professional engineers, owners and members of the public for information on what specifically our inspectors check for during construction. The following checklists can be of assistance to those responsible for ensuring a structure is built to code.(1)

(1)Checklists cannot contain all references in the Building Code. Compliance with each item on the above checklists does not absolve anyone from building in full compliance with the Ontario Building Code and Act.
