posted Dec 12, 2017, 4:16 PM by Douglas Ratke
We are pleased to announce that homeowners can now apply for our most popular home improvement permits online. Applying is faster and easier than ever thanks to The City’s new single application form and 24/7 online services.

We’ve taken the hassle out of applying for our most popular home improvement permits by offering homeowners the ability to apply for these services from the comfort of their own home. Customers will be able to apply, upload documents and pay for their permit in a few easy steps, and in most cases, obtain their permit within a business day.

Calgarians can learn, apply and pay for our most popular home improvement projects on, including:

• Basement, and interior renovations
• Garages, sheds, greenhouses
• Decks (uncovered)
• Homeowner plumbing or electrical permits

A personal City myID is required to apply for homeowner permits online. 

The remaining home improvement permits will be available online by summer 2018. To learn more about the service improvements we're making for homeowners and business customers, visit
