Environmental Sustainability Program
As part of the Strategic Plan, the City of Wetaskiwin is committed to being "a sustainable community that responsibly manages its' infrastructure, finances, and environment". That's why we're introducing the Environmental Sustainability Program - to promote development while encouraging environmental sustainability.
The Environmental Sustainability Program is comprised of three components: the low flow toilet rebate, the solar panel rebate, and the green building rebate.
Low Flow Toilet Rebate
This rebate is available for properties with a current City of Wetaskiwin utility account in good standing. Inefficient toilets (13L or more) must be replaced with a toilet using 6L per flush or less with the WaterSense label. A rebate of $50 per toilet up to a maximum of four rebates per property, per year will be credited to the utility account.

Historical Building Permits:
1979 - 2013 Building Permit Summary
- Late 80's construction of the Reynolds Alberta Museum spiked the Institutional permit values.
- Institutional permits peaked again in 2012 due to the construction of the Manluk Centre.
- Commercial development has been very stable.
- Residential permits hit a high in 2007. Unfortunately that peak tapered off sharply for the next three years.
A Compliance Certificate is a confirmation from the City of Wetaskiwin that the location of the building(s) on the site complies with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw. It does not regulate or enforce building code requirements. A Compliance Certificate is usually required by lending agencies and/or lawyers in the sale of property and/or mortgage approval in order to protect their clients' investments. Standard real estate purchase contracts often require the vendor to obtain a Compliance Certificate. A Compliance Certificate is not a legislative requirement, but rather a service provided by the City of Wetaskiwin. The City does not require you to get a Compliance Certificate.
The fees for a Compliance Certificate are $100.00 for residential ($200.00 rush) and $200.00 non-residential ($400.00 rush).
This Bylaw was approved by City Council at the January 11th regular Council meeting (2016). The purpose of Bylaw 1858-15 is to establish fees for safety code permits, development permits and engineering fees & charges. The fees listed in the columns below will be revised shortly to reflect the fees and charges stated in approved Bylaw 1858-15.
