COVID-19 and Electrical Service Changes
Electrical inspections are still being scheduled. Until further notice, premises that are occupied prior to final inspection will no longer be inspected. This is in accordance with Provincial Health Officer (PHO) orders. Site reviews of other occupied properties and spaces will, in some cases, continue to be carried out with alternative review methods and/or specific protocols.
In-person site reviews of occupied premises may be required and will involve additional safety measures and increased levels of service and effort, such as the Site Reviews for Final Permit Acceptance and Occupied Spaces Checklist. Final Building Site Reviews will continue to require in-person attendance from building officials. For more information, refer to the Site Reviews for Final Permit Acceptance and Occupied Spaces Bulletin.
As COVID-19 evolves, we will continue to keep you informed of any other temporary service implementations and changes. We appreciate your patience and flexibility at this time. Please visit this site regularly to get the latest information.
