If you have ever built a house or started a business, you've probably dealt with staff from Inspections, an integral function offered by the Community Services Department.
The Inspections service is responsible for the licensing of businesses in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas. Business licenses are issued on an annual basis. This also includes participation of the Regional District in the Inter-Community Business Licensing program.
The building inspection staff also work to ensure the safety of the public through the application and enforcement of the BC Building Code and local zoning bylaws.
