Winnipeg Building Permit Amnesty Program

Effective June 1, 2021, the Permit Amnesty Program encourages Winnipeg homeowners who have done renovations or upgrades to their primary residence without permits, to apply for their permits, and have their work inspected and approved as compliant with applicable Codes, By-laws, and safety standards. Post-construction permit fee(s), normally applied to permits where work has been done, will be waived upon payment of applicable permit fees.

Homeowners opting into the amnesty program must ensure that work is completed and inspected by City staff within a three-year time frame. Homeowners who receive a notice or order for work done without permits as a result of an investigation by City employees will not be eligible for the amnesty program.
