Places of religious assembly

If you’re building a structure or converting an industrial unit to be used as a place of public worship, there are regulations on permitted locations, area and number of parking spaces required.

Check Uses Permitted in More Than One Zone Category in subsection of the Zoning By-law.

The zoning of your property may have additional regulations. Review the general provisions, and then check the zoning regulations for your property using the find property information tool.

If something in the general provisions conflicts with the zoning regulations for your property, follow the zoning regulations.

If you’re converting an industrial space to a place of religious assembly, you may need a building permit.
