Community Planning Permit By-Law

Attention: Please note that due to the growing concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Innisfil’s Planning Services Department is requiring all owners/applicants to submit their development application(s) digitally. This will ensure that applications will be reviewed by Planning Staff during a time when staff are making efforts to work remotely. Face-to-face pre-consultation meetings will be suspended until further notice. Should the Planning Department receive a pre-consultation request, we will try our best to facilitate a video-conferencing call with the applicant and required Staff to discuss the proposed application.  

Please contact for questions on how to apply digitally and to submit your development application(s). Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time.

Shoreline Permit applications can be submitted in a digital form via email.  To submit digitally, please email your complete shoreline permit application package to To submit an application in person, please visit us at Town Hall, 2101 Innisfil Beach Road and ask to speak to one of our Development Coordinators.
