Demolition Work

If you are fully or partially demolishing a structure contact the Building Division at building@cityssm.on.ca or 705-759-5410 for more information.

A demolition permit is required before you take down all or part of a building.

The process is much the same as for a building permit; however, your application may be affected by special situations. For example, if a building has historical or architectural significance, it may be designated as a heritage building under the Ontario Heritage Act and approval from the Sault Ste. Marie Municipal Heritage Committee will be required. In some cases, you must hire a professional engineer to oversee the demolition.

To apply for a demolition permit you must complete the Application for a Permit to Construct or Demolish and provide a PCO certificate. A PCO certificate can be obtained from any pest control company and must be provided at time of application.
