In May 2015, the City of St John’s, NL rolled out new technology to improve their building permit inspection process.

Building inspectors will begin using CityReporter on their smartphones and tablets to complete and file their reports electronically.

Thanks to this new technology, our inspectors will need to spend less time in the office, permits will be generated more quickly and deficiencies will be reported faster so that they can also be acted upon in a timely manner – everyone benefits, from the City to the builder to the homeowner.- Councillor Tom Hann

As a result, both the builders and the city inspectors will be able to go through the typical permit process much more quickly and effectively.
