The City of La Malbaie offers taxpayers an urban planning service for everything related to the protection of the environment, the issuance of permits, the application of municipal regulations, services, consultation as well as information related to municipal zoning.

Considering that some of the work of our inspectors requires a visit to the properties, it is recommended to make an appointment at (418) 665-3747 before coming to City Hall.

Please note that it is very important before starting work on your property, to check if it is necessary to obtain a permit or a certificate of authorization to carry out this work. In the event that you perform work without a permit, you will be liable to the penalties provided for in the regulations.

Certain sectors of the City are subject to the Site Planning and Architectural Integration Program (P.I.I.A.) by-law. For these sectors, the application for a permit or certificate of authorization will be studied by the Planning Advisory Committee, which will make a recommendation to City Council for final approval.

It should be noted that the Planning Advisory Committee meets once a month, on the first Tuesday of each month, therefore requiring additional time for the issuance of the permit or certificate of authorization. It is recommended that you request your permit application at least 30 to 45 days before starting your work.

For more information please contact one of our inspectors as soon as possible.
