Noise by-law exemptions

You can request an exemption to the noise by-law by filling out an application form for a noise exemption (pdf, 140 kb) and submitting it to By-law Services.

If you are applying for a noise by-law exemption, you must notify residential properties within 120 metres of the location/event that you are applying for an exemption. A Notice of Noise Exemption template is included with the application form. Your exemption application must be accompanied by a copy of the resident notice with a list of addresses where the notice was sent.

If you are having trouble identifying properties within 120 metres of your event, use Google Maps to help you. You can use the measuring tool (accessed by right clicking on location) included on Google Maps.
