Plumbing Permits

A plumbing permit is required when:

  • Installing a toilet/shower in my/my client's basement (not roughed in)
  • Building a house, row house, semi-detached house or showhome

If you are installing a toilet and/or shower in a basement that is already roughed-in, a permit is not required.

A certified plumbing journeyman must apply for commercial plumbing permits. Contractors applying for plumbing permits must have a valid business licence in the City of Spruce Grove.

Wait times are approximately three business days.
