Compliance Certificate

A compliance certificate is a confirmation from the Municipal District that the property conforms to the provisions of the Municipal Land Use Bylaw.

It is not a requirement of the Municipal District that landowner obtains a certificate of compliance however it is common real estate practice that the seller obtains a Certificate of Compliance. Financial institutions and mortgage companies also require confirmation that the property is in compliance with municipal planning regulations.

Application Request

In order to make a request for a certificate of compliance the following items must be submitted:

  • A written request must be made to the Planning & Development Department

  • At least one original Real Property Report dated within the last 3 years or if older than three years it must be updated by the original surveyor (no larger than 11 in. x 17 in paper)

  • A Land Title Certificate for the subject lands (dated within the last 3 months)

  • Request fee


Once the request is received a review of the land file is conducted to confirm if the development meets the current regulations and, all permits and approvals have been obtained.

If the development on the property meets the regulation a certificate of compliance letter will be attached to the Real Property Report which will also be stamped by the municipality.

If the development on your property does not meet regulations, you will be advised by a letter indicating what has not met approval and how to resolve it.
