The City of Calgary is now offering a new online service that will allow contractors to apply, pay and receive permits online. This is the first online payment system for services related to planning, building and development in Calgary.
The online system will allow electrical, plumbing, gas, fireplace and HVAC trade contractors to get permits online at calgary.ca/vista, which will save them a trip to City Hall.
“Moving the ability to apply, pay and receive permits online is the first of many services that will be available to accept payment and we are very pleased with the direction we are heading,” says Kevin Griffiths, Chief Building Official. “Providing a service like this helps the process become easier for those applying for permits as well as reduces time and effort for our staff to process. That’s the main objective.”
Last year the process to have qualifications verified for new trade contractors called City Qualified Trades, was placed online. This one-time process gave new contractors the ability to apply and book appointments online to become qualified in order to pull permits. For more information, questions and self-help guides regarding trade permits, visit calgary.ca/tradepermits.
