When COVID-19 impacted the in-person Permit/Subdivision application process, a skilled group of employees from Planning & Development and ICT quickly addressed this gap by collaborating on an electronic solution to meet the needs of residents and industry stakeholders.

Planning & Development is excited and committed to continually improving customers’ digital interactions with a focus on service excellence.
