I lived in Mississauga, Ontario, I want to build a treehouse for my son, where can I find the information about it? do I need a permit?

I've never built in Mississauga. So I can't say for sure what the regulations are there. But, if I had to guess, I would say that tree-houses are probably illegal. 'Coz if they were legal, there would be all kinds of regulations governing their construction. :wink:

There are some projects that the building inspectors must know about and inspect. There are others that they really don't want to know about. A tree-house would fall in the 2nd category.

Keep safety in mind as u build it. Anchor it well, put railings on any high platforms, no protruding nails, good, solid ladders . . . and such. Keep in mind that there may be more kids up there at times than u bargained on. :o lol

Have fun . . and get yr kids involved in its creation. :)
