Building Permit:
it is the responsibility of the client and contractor to ensure that the project is required for a building permit from the City having jurisdiction. If the client/contractor does not have a permit for work that has already started, and it turns out you need a permit for that work, it is the sole responsibility of the client and contractor.

As per Article 2.2.7.2 in Part 2 of Division C in BC Building Code 2018 or Vancouver Building Bylaw (VBBL) 2019 for the project located in the city of Vancouver, BC, it is the owner’s obligation and responsibility to ensure that the authority having jurisdiction receives all Schedules CB and/or CA after completion of the project and before the final inspection by the authority having jurisdiction.
