Do You Need A Permit To Finish A Basement In Toronto?

Before you start any work on your basement, it’s best to know if you need a permit. The answer is, yes. Under the Building Code Act, a building permit is required for the construction of a new building, an addition, or an alteration of any building or structure with a building area of over 10 square metres (approximately 108 square feet).

In the city of Toronto, a building permit is required If the proposed work for finishing a basement includes any of the following, 

  • Changes to the structure or the materials
  • Installing or modifying plumbing and/or heating systems,   
  • Digging and/or building basement foundations,   
  • Building a basement entrance,
  • Adding a second suite.

With our perfect kitchen renovation process, the outcome is always the homeowners’ desired result, and the journey to get there is as simple as can be.



An open and transparent conversation about the budget and desired outcome is the first step in the kitchen renovation process.



That goes without saying, but it is crucial to hire only certified kitchen professionals. The Right Guys are exactly that.

A building permit for finishing a basement does not require in the following scenarios;

  • Work does not include structural or material alterations;
  • No additional dwelling unit(s) is (are) created (i.e. a second unit)
  • Work does not include the installation of new plumbing;
  • Undertaking waterproofing repairs to a basement;

Be sure you get this or ask your contractor if they take care of it. It is important that you get this before you start. Your basement renovations could go against the by-law and they make you tear it all down.

Basement Finishing Costs

While home renovations are expensive, a basement renovation is a great way to get a great return on your investment. Depending on what you want to be done will obviously determine the cost.

You need to factor in labour and materials, which will also include walls, ceilings, flooring, paint, and then electrical and plumbing work, as well. Expect to be paying anywhere from $30-$80 per square foot.

Even if you consider yourself a handyperson, a basement renovation is not a DIY job. You will always need to hire someone to help you and you want the job to be done right by a licensed basement contractor.
