To help streamline our processes and deliver the highest levels of service possible during this building boom, the Municipality has introduced new approaches to process your building permit applications. These will include new online resources, administrative assistance, and dedicated appointments with our Building Officials, among other aids.

To book an appointment with MOPC Building Officials you can email .   You can also call 902-485-4588 to speak with Mike McKenzie or 902-485-2243 to speak with Travis Spears. 

MOPC Building Officials now require appointments during business hours due to the higher volume of building permits being processed in the Municipality of Pictou County.   

We look forward to working with you on your next development as we continue to experience and promote the sustainable growth and development of our beautiful region.
