Property Inquiry Information
Property INFORMATION PortaL
General zoning attributes, assessment & taxation information, and a property's legal address and property identification (PID) number can be obtained through the Property Information Portal .
The CityViews Map can be used to search for a variety of information, including underground services, easements & right-of-ways, land use classifications, permits & licensing, and transportation.
After selecting a specific property, by either using the search bar, or right-clicking a property and selecting "find data on map", a Site Report for that property can be obtained from a link on the left column. This Site Development Report will outline the zoning information for the site, and any buildings on the property, as well as a listing of permits issued for the property.
BUILDING DIVISION DOCUMENT REQUEST
Property owners wishing to obtain Building Division records, including archived drawings, copies of permits, inspection reports, or professional reports may do so through a Document Request Form. The City cannot guarantee that the requested information will be on file, or that documents that are on file are complete.
Please note there is a non-refundable search fee, in addition to the service fees and per page fees. Additionally, the request must be made by either the registered property owner, or an authorized agent of the owner, with a complete Letter of Authorization. For strata properties, the Letter of Authorization must be signed by a sitting member of strata council. If the owner is a Corporation or Non-Profit, the Letter of Authorization must be accompanied by a letter from the owners solicitor, confirming the signatory has signing authority.
A Comfort Letter is a formal letter provided by Development Services, which provides a summary of the property, based on existing archive information. A comfort letter does not provide copies of documents or drawings.
Information provided can include, but not limited to;
- Outstanding violations against the property
- Written record of permits and occupancy dates
- Confirmation of zoning and development entitlements
- Heritage protection status
- Fire inspections & notices of violations
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST
When the requestor is not the property owner and not acting with the owners authorization, or is requesting information beyond that outline in the Document Request Form, the requestor must complete a Freedom of Information Request for Records.
