Plumbing Permit Requirements
A plumbing system may not be constructed, altered, extended, renewed or repaired unless a plumbing permit has been obtained for the work. To obtain a permit, you must be a licensed plumbing contractor registered with the City of Saskatoon. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that the plumbing contractors comply with the Plumbing Regulations.
A Plumbing Permit is required whenever a plumbing system is being constructed, changed, renewed, repaired or when fixtures are being set for the first time on an originally permitted rough in.
When a Plumbing Permit is not required:
- to clear a blockage in a drainage system
- to repair a leak in a water distribution system
- to replace a fixture without any change to the drainage system
- to replace existing faucets, water heaters or valves
Plumbing Permit Application Process
- Complete the Plumbing Permit Application form.
- Submit application form and corresponding documents via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- A Building Standards representative will contact you to collect payment via credit card and a permit will be issued.
- Inspections take place at the rough-in and final stages. Several rough-in inspections may be required depending on the complexity of the specific project. A final inspection is required before the new system can be put into service.
