Submit a special construction, modification or occupancy project for a building

Last updated May 20, 2022

Special construction, modification or occupancy projects are designed to allow for work that fall outside urban planning by-laws. They are particularly useful for large or complex projects.

Special construction, modification or occupancy projects are exceptional measures. This procedure aims to allow a project to be carried out, under certain conditions, despite the fact that the work falls outside urban planning by-laws, for example regarding surface area, building height, number of units, or zoning.

In all cases, standards that are set for an area or the whole city must be met. The project must follow the objectives of the city’s Urban Plan and all conditions that the borough council may set out.
