Under the Safety Codes Act, owners have responsibilities to help make sure the buildings they own comply with the Safety Codes Act. Contractors can assist homeowners in carrying out some of these responsibilities such as obtaining permits.
Effective May 1, 2016, the Alberta Safety Codes Authority (ASCA) will oversee the provision of safety codes compliance monitoring (permitting and inspection services) in unaccredited areas on behalf of the Government of Alberta.
This section will help you find information on the transition between Alberta Municipal Affairs (AMA) and ASCA permits and inspections process, and finding an agency.
If you are planning a construction project, please note the following important information regarding permit transition from AMA to ASCA. All complete permit applications (including supporting construction documents) must be received by midnight April 30, 2016, in order for an AMA permit to be issued. All permits issued after April 30th will be an ASCA permit and will follow the ASCA process.
