Gas

Installation Permits

Overview

Gas installation permits are required for licensed contractors installing regulated gas equipment or gas systems working with natural and manufactured gas, liquefied petroleum gas, hydrogen, digester gas, landfill gas, or a mixture or dilution of gasses.

Please note that the following process does not apply to homeowner permits.

We issue gas installation permits, unless you are located in one of the following areas, in which case you should check with the municipality or district.

  • Burnaby
  • Maple Ridge
  • North Vancouver
  • Kelowna
  • Richmond
  • Vancouver
  1. Apply and pay for a permit through your online services account or using this online form. If you use the form, you will have to submit payment separately through mail, or by calling us.
  2. Once your application is approved, we will issue a permit number.
  3. Your gasfitter then submits the gas notification of completion, installation, or alteration form. This must be done after each phase is complete and at least once within 180 days of the permit being issued.
  4. We will process the request and determine if a further physical assessment is needed.

Often, the scope of work changes over the course of a project, affecting the value of the permit. If this is the case, a permit amendment must be submitted. A permit for the final value and scope of work must be in place before requesting for a final inspection. Undervalued work may be subject to enforcement action.
