The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) made amendments (Ontario Regulation 867/21) to Ontario's Building Code related to building permit requirements for sheds. The changes provide more flexibility for property owners to store their equipment and other belongings in sheds.

 

Effective April 29, 2022, a shed is exempt from the requirement to obtain a permit under section 8 of the Act and is exempt from compliance with this Code, provided that the shed is:

  • no more than 15m2 in gross area

  • no more than one storey in building height

  • not attached to a building or any other structure

  • is used solely for storage purposes ancillary to a principal building on the lot

  • does not have plumbing

HUMAN HABITATION IS NOT PERMITTED
