How can I get information on a building file?

You may request information from an existing building file using the following form. The form must be filled out by the listing agent and home owner then emailed to inspections@cvrd.bc.ca

Once we receive your email, you will be notified if information is available. Printing documents is provided for $0.25 per page. When your package is ready for pick up you may pick it up at 175 Ingram Street, Duncan. Unfortunately we cannot send documents electronically. Please note, identification is required at time of pick up.
