Permits & inspections

Whether building a new home or business, or making changes to your existing service, we can help you get the required applications, permits, and inspections.


  • Residential do-it-yourself wiring
    If you can do electrical work for your home or cottage, submit a self-wire permit, install safely, and book an inspection.
  • Structure move clearance permit
    If you are moving a building or oversized structure, you must apply for a clearance permit so we can move power lines or electrical facilities out of your way.
  • Farm equipment move clearance permit
    If you are moving farm equipment, you must apply for an annual clearance permit and ensure your route has safe clearance from our power lines and electrical facilities. You must specify the type of equipment being moved.
  • Shore land development
    If you own or lease property next to shore lands along the Winnipeg River system, you must obtain approval before building or development.
