Facility Alteration Permits

The FAP process reviews all proposed construction and development to ensure work doesn't harm airport operations or infrastructure.

No construction or demolition work can be done at Edmonton International Airport or Villeneuve Airport without an approved permit, and any work found being conducted without an approved permit may be shut down.

What Work Needs A FAP?

Any work that may impact existing airport infrastructure will require review by Edmonton Airports.

A FAP - Development permit is required for a new development, addition or major renovation to an existing building, change in use of a building in occupancy, site stripping or creation of a stock pile.  Edmonton Airports is the Authority Having Jurisdiction for development at EIA.

A FAP - Construction permit is required when changes or improvments are made to infrastructure owned by or leased from EIA at both Edmonton International and Villeneuve Airports. Leduc County (EIA) and Sturgeon County (Villeneuve) are the Authorities Having Jurisdcition for work under the Alberta Safety Code.  They will not provide approval without an approved FAP- Construction from EIA.

Contact Technical Services at 780-890-8582 for more information on the approval process or excluded developments.


Who Needs to Apply?

All parties, whether they are tenants on an Edmonton Airports site, an agent of the Airport, or a third party working on Airport lands need to apply. The Applicant may be the contractor doing the work, the corporation for whom the work is being done for, or an outside representative acting on behalf of the corporation.

If the Applicant is not the Owner of the property, you will have to provide the name and contact information of the Owner or Primary Lease Holder.


Submission Requirements

Authentication of drawings by a Professional

In general FAP applications will require drawings completed by a professional (engineer, architect or both) and the continued involvement of the professional in the inspection of construction as mandated by the Alberta Building Code, and/or Architects Act and/or the Engineering and Geosciences Professions Act of Alberta.  Both permit submissions and project record drawings are required to be authenticated.

To avoid processing delays ensure that applications are complete including drawings authenticated by the appropriate professional(s).  For further information, please contact Technical Services at 780 890 8582.
