Permit Central

Streamline and automate your permit approval and issuance process

A digital road permit platform that helps government agencies streamline their permitting processes and significantly reduce the time and administrative costs.

No more manual handling of paper or PDF forms. Work smarter, not harder. 


Our Approach, Your Results

Paper and PDF-based road permitting is a process that requires a lot of back-and-forth between applicants and reviewers. Modernizing the road permit process—from application through to payment and approval—optimizes workflow, reduces human error, and puts your organization's plans in the fast lane.

Permit Central, an entirely digital road permitting service, was defined with 10 municipalities in a year-long provincially funded project, that leveraged Transnomis' years of road permitting and road information management expertise. 

All Permits at Your Fingertips
All Permits at Your Fingertips 

Authorities and applicants can quickly access their applications and all associated document, communication and change logs, payment receipts and more – all in one place. No more digging through paper or emails and managing information across multiple systems! 

Eliminate Manual Data Entry

Manual processes are time-consuming and error-prone. The digital approach will greatly reduce those issues, and can help in cases where information is required to be entered across various forms and documents. 

Reduce Processing Times
Reduce Processing Times

The road permit application process involves multiple stages of review, conflict checking, approvals, and (at times) consultation from different departments or agencies. Permit Central can help save up to 80% time savings compared to the previous process. 

Mapped Experience

Having the applicant map their location through the Permit Central system standardizes the format of route information, helping to avoid conflicts and ensure authorities have a full view of all upcoming work.

Local and Regional Approaches

Applicants can apply to multiple authorities at once in cases where a plan or route involves multiple jurisdictions. For reviewers, reaching out to other road authorities for consultation takes only a single click. 

Municipal511 Integration

Applicants are able to view road closures, construction, truck routes, and cautions as they map their route, allowing them to adjust their plans and timing to work around known road use conflicts. Approved permit content can flow directly to the travel and project views in the Municipal511.ca public site.
