No building permits for dwellings will be issued until such time that the applicant has supplied a valid septic system permit as well as include the Energy Compliance Forms (see below) with their Building permit application. Please include your email address with your application. Energy Compliance, 2019

As of January 1, 2019, the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB) 2017 Edition and Section 9.36. of the National Building Code of Canada 2015 (NBC Section 9.36.) is enforced within Saskatchewan. All new construction is required to conform to the energy requirements as per the NECB and the NBC Section 9.36. The R.M. of Vanscoy is within Climate Zone 7A and all new development is required to conform to the energy requirements for Climate Zone 7A.

Please refer to the Required Forms for Energy Compliance Information Sheet to determine what forms are required for the development you are seeking to pursue. Please ensure you are aware of the proposed occupancy classification as this will determine what forms are required to be submitted with the Development and Building Permit Application form. For simplicity, all residential development will potentially require Form C1 to be provided, while all commercial and or industrial development is required to have a designer determine and demonstrate compliance.

Additional NECB compliance information can be found HERE.
All forms can be found at the Municode Services Ltd. web page or by clicking HERE.
