Commercial & Farm Buildings
Authority Having Jurisdiction
The Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) is determined by the geographic location of the building in Manitoba and whether the building must comply with Part 9 or Part 3 of the Manitoba Building Code.
The three AHJs in Manitoba are:
Municipal Relations (MR)/Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC)
Municipal Relations, formally the OFC, is the AHJ for all farm buildings having an area greater than 600 sq.m. (6,458 sq. ft.) and all buildings that fall under the Part 3 designation in the Cypress Planning District.
Please see below for the MR/OFC permit application as well as the permit application guide.
Please note that a Cypress Planning District Development Permit will be required, as Municipal authorization prior to MR/OFC being able to issue a building permit.
For more information please contact the Cypress Planning District.
