Create records, statistics and reports


The City of Burlington provides copies of building records to residents upon request. These include:

  • Real estate surveys
  • Residential or commercial construction drawings or house plans
  • Investigations

Request to see building records

Due to an extremely high number of requests for routine disclosures, we are unable to accept any more applications until Fall 2022. Please check back in September for open dates for applications. Individuals who choose to exercise their rights to access information under MFIPPA by submitting an access to information request will be subject to search extensions that will extend until routine disclosure be available again in fall 2022.

During this time, if your request is urgent, we recommend that you contact the following organizations to see if they can help you find a copy of your survey:

  • Mackay, MacKay Peters Limited
    3380 South Service Road, Burlington
    [email protected] – They may have older property surveys on file

To request to view building records or to obtain copies of documents, please contact the Building and Regulations Department at 905-335-7731 or [email protected] You must have a letter of permission from the architect or engineer who produced the drawings to obtain copies.

You can also search land property records by visiting ServiceOntario.

Build statistics and reports

We prepare statistics and reports that summarize building permit activity for the City, including:

  • Monthly Reports – monthly summaries of building permit activity, such as number of permits issued, estimated value of construction, and number of residential units created
  • Quarterly reports – two-year comparisons of building permit activity by building type for the quarter and year-to-date, including number of permits issued, estimated construction value, and permit fees paid
  • Annual Reports – several reports that give a five-year comparative summary of overall building permit activity in Burlington
  • Permit Issuance List – a monthly report available for a fee that lists building permits issued in a specific month. To purchase previous or future monthly listings, please contact the Building and Bylaws Department at 905-335-7731, ext. 7470 or [email protected]
