By-Law Enforcement

It is always best if neighbours can respectfully resolve their issues without the need for By-law Enforcement. If possible, discuss the problem with your neighbour. Remember to focus on the issue, listen to their concerns, and look for mutually beneficial solutions.

If your efforts to resolve the matter with your neighbour have been unsuccessful, the Township's By-law Enforcement officer may be able to assist in resolving the issue. Contact the By-law Enforcement officer to learn about the Township's By-laws and if they apply to your situation. He can be reached at 705-989-8788. You may find an answer to your inquiry in our FAQ's listed below.
