Municipal Addressing By-Law (09-050)

The City assigns addresses for all properties and buildings. The Municipal Address By-Law (09-050) ensures that the City uses a consistent system of addressing using Bell 9-1-1 standards.

Requests for Change of Address

  • Requests for a change of address related to 9-1-1 standards are free of charge.
  • Requests for a change of address not related to 9-1-1 standards are subject to a $60 fee.

For more information, please email Andrew Nichols or call 705-742-7777 ext. 1678

Why is an addressing by-law necessary?

The Address By-Law:

  • Ensures every occupied building and property has a unique address.
  • Improves services from local government and utility companies.
  • Provides emergency personnel a quick and effective way to locate addresses

Control monuments are brass or metal disks in the ground. They measure locations and elevations and act as an exact point of reference to surveyors.
