Building By-laws

Interpretation and Application

All building by-laws currently in effect in the Greater Miramichi Region are found below. In general, each building by-law outlines:

  • The adoption of the National Building Code (NBC) of Canada;
  • Provisions for the requirement, administration, and revocation of a building permit; 
  • Responsibilities of the Applicant and Building Inspector;
  • Powers of the Building Inspector;
  • Building permit fees.

We strongly encourage clients to contact us and ask to speak with a Building Inspector for the interpretation and application of building by-laws.


By-laws are amended on a regular basis. Although the Greater Miramichi Regional Service Commission (GMRSC) - Planning Services strives to keep by-laws accurate and up-to-date, they are for informational purposes only. All new by-laws and amendments to existing by-laws must be registered with the New Brunswick Land Registry office wherein official legal versions are kept on file. The GMRSC - Planning Services makes no representations or warranties, either expressed or implied, as to the accuracy of the by-laws presented below. The user assumes all risk using any or all information therein.
