Permitting and new construction monitoring

Civic Insight screen shot

Wood Buffalo Civic Insight is a mobile-friendly tool that allows residents to view and monitor permitting and new construction activities in their neighbourhood.


Residents can view detailed permitting, demolition and construction progress, including dates and the status of permits (i.e. applied, reviewed, issued, inspected or finalized) by inputting a street name or address, or by clicking on an address.

The tool also provides workflow checks each month in addition to daily, weekly and monthly permit volumes.

Residents can sign up for alerts, which offer up-to-date information about what’s happening with their property or properties in their neighbourhood.


To learn more, you can take a comprehensive tour of the tool.

More Information

Wood Buffalo Civic Insight has been developed to support current development and construction activities. Some information on permit approvals prior to 2012 may be incomplete and you will need to contact Planning and Development to review the property file.

Owners are strongly encouraged to track and monitor their rebuild progress to ensure the contractors are completing the work to code. The owner is ultimately responsible for the home and it is in the owner's best interest to keep tabs on their contractors.

For questions, call the Safety Codes Branch of the Planning and Development Department at 780-799-8695 or email
