FAQs

Do I need a permit to build a deck on my property?

A building permit is required for the construction of a new building, an addition, or alteration of any building or structure with a building area of over 10 square meters (approximately 108 square feet). If the deck is adjacent or attached to the house, is elevated or exceeds a certain walking surface, then a permit is required under the Building Code Act. Get more details about deck permits here.

Do I need a railing on the deck?

Railings are required on decks that are over 60cm from finished grade. Smaller decks do not require a railing.

What height deck needs a railing in Ottawa?

The railing needs to be at least 90cm high on a deck that is between 60cm and 180cm. Any deck larger than this from finished grade requires a railing that is at least 107cm high.
