Applicants submitting building-related permits in Richmond can now do so without going to city hall in person.

A new online, self-serve permit portal, called MyPermit, to help streamline the permit process officially launched on Nov. 20.

Trades contractors and permit applicants can apply for simple permit types such as plumbing and gas permits where people can make online payments and keep an eye on the status of their applications.

“The MyPermit platform is a key milestone in the Council-approved Permitting Optimization Project and a further step toward streamlining permit applications to improve accessibility for business owners and developers,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

“The City has again demonstrated its commitment to convenience and efficiency by leveraging technology to improve the customer experience and reduce the processing time for building and development-related applications.”

To access MyPermit, log into MyRichmond with updates to the MyRichmond mobile app coming soon.
