Municipal Addressing

City building

The main goal of municipal addressing policy is to maintain a consistent system for the addressing of buildings to assist emergency services when they're trying to find your home, business or building in an emergency.

We want to ensure that every occupied building has a unique address making it easy to identify and locate. Consistent municipal addressing can also help improve services from local government and utility companies.

It's not just a number: It can save your life

To obtain an address or request an address change, please contact the Geomatics and Mapping Division by email or by phone at 705-742-7777 ext. 1678.
