Teleinspections for First Nations Remote Communities

For most of Canada, conducting Building inspections is not a challenge.

However, conducting inspections for new homes in many First Nations is not always possible. When this happens, homes are not constructed to national building code requirements and will need major repairs in a few years. This is especially a problem in First Nations remote communities.
