The Noise By-law regulates excessive sounds to minimize disturbances in your neighbourhood such as:

  • Dog(s) barking persistently, 
  • Yard maintenance tools between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. (9 a.m. on Sundays),
  • Motorcycle noise above 92 decibels,
  • Amplified sound (from speakers or stereo system, radios or outdoor TVs), or 
  • Construction outside of permitted times.

Noise exemption permits can be obtained from the Municipal Enforcement Services department. Permits may be considered for construction, community or life events. Your application form must be submitted at least 30 days before the scheduled event or activity takes place. For more details, including a link to the online application portal, please visit the Noise Exemption Permit page.

Non-compliance with the by-law without an exemption may result in fees and charges under the Administrative Penalty By-law 2021-038.
