Electronic payments for planning and building fees

You can make electronic payments by electronic funds transfer (EFT) or wire transfer for:

  • Building permit and planning application fees greater than $30,000 that cannot be paid through ePlans
  • Additional building permit and planning application fees that cannot be paid through ePlans

You can make Interac e-transfer payments for fees that can’t be paid through ePlans and are less than $30,000. The City will provide the email address for the Interac e-transfer only after we have received and accepted your EFT information.

A $15 surcharge is applicable to all wire transfers. Please ensure this amount is added to your payment before transferring your payment to the City.

Fees for planning applications can also be paid via cheque.
