The town is in the Red-Control level under the new provincial COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
We have new comprehensive online processes in place to help planning, building, and development projects move forward as well as to support the submission of other types of permit applications during the COVID-19 pandemic, while protecting the health and safety of you and our staff. The town’s intention in resuming these services online is to give all who need approvals the chance to advance essential projects and prepare non-essential work for when the Ontario government lifts essential business restrictions.
Find out how to submit your permit or application electronically by visiting the Electronic Permits and Applications page.
