Of note, if you’re wanting to submit for a Building Permit in Toronto, there is a new regulation that requires you to submit all documentation in digital format now, on a re-writable DVD. Okay, okay, as of Nov.7th 2011, but only really enforcing it as of late. You still need to submit 2 sets of hardcopies along with it.
I’ve heard no word yet if any other jurisdictions will adopt this format. Stay tuned.
