• Will be up longer than 6 weeks duration;
• Is intended to hold more than 60 people; or
• Is more than 1,000 sq. ft in size
Only if all three of the above are under these numbers, a permit will not be required.
2) In order to apply for a Temporary Placement Permit, the following information must be provided:
• Copy of documentation that the tent is an engineered structure
• Copy of verification of flame spread rating, per CAN/ULC S109
• Detailed site plan showing:
I. Location of tent with distances (in feet) to property lines and other structures
II. Size of tent
III. Location of exits in tent
IV. Openings (i.e. doors and windows) in existing building(s) in relation to the tent
3) Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba Licensed Tents (in addition to the above) requires:
• Fire Safety Inspection
• Emergency Lighting
• Fire extinguishers at exits
• Greater than 150 capacity, requires exit signage
• A final inspection, PRIOR TO OCCUPANCY, is required
• The tent and amenities (i.e. tables, chairs, bar, etc.) must be completely assembled for the inspection
• Only if the final inspection passes will an occupancy permit be issued, thus your right to open the tent to the public
Per Section 18.104.22.168. of the Manitoba Fire Code, “smoking and open flame devices shall not be permitted in a tent or air-supported structure while it is occupied by the public”.
All the Municipalities in our District require an owner to enter into a Performance Agreement/Bond prior to our office issuing an approved permit for the relocation of an older home or building.
A Performance Bond is the Municipality’s protection if an owner fails to fulfill all the terms of a Building Permit and Contract entered into by all parties. Typically terms include, but are not limited to, upgrading the structure to meet current Manitoba Building Code requirements, landscaping, exterior finishing, etc.
Below is the information and requirements for the relocation and/or moving-in of dwellings and accessory structures. Please note that the information provided below is primarily for dwellings. If you are moving in a detached structure (eg. garage) then only numbers 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8 shall apply.
1. Review the booklet on "Relocating an Older Home" (available by EIPD).
2. Pre-inspection of building (fees applicable), conducted by the EIPD Building Inspector, if within our district (RM of Gimli, RM of Bifrost-Riverton, Town of Arborg and Town of Winnipeg Beach). If the building is being moved-in from outside of our district, other means for an inspection will be required.
3. Completion of the "Moving in Older Homes Inspection Check Sheet”. Note that if pre-inspection is conducted by our Inspector he will complete this form.
4. Interior and Exterior Pictures of the Structure.
5. Foundation Plans with an Engineer’s Stamp (if required).
6. Completion of the Heating & Ventilation Requirements Sheet (provided by EIPD).
7. Staking Certificate / Building Location Certificate prepared by a Registered Manitoba Land Surveyor.
8. Completion of a Building Permit Application (available by EIPD) with applicable fees paid in full. Note: the completion of a permit does not give permission to proceed at this point.
Once all the above information has been provided, the EIPD office will submit a report to Council for their decision on a Performance Bond/Agreement. Only with Council’s approval can our office issue approval of the Building Permit Application, thus your right to proceed.
DUE TO THIS PROCESS, APPROVAL OF A RELOCATION CAN BE TIME CONSUMING! PLEASE ACCOUNT FOR THIS WHEN PLANNING YOUR PROJECT.
There are no employment opportunities at this time.
