It is important that emergency responders
can find a specific home as quickly as possible and they rely on clearly posted addresses on the front and back of your home.
Under the Community Standards Bylaw, addresses must be:
- Clearly visible from the roadway.
- Clearly displayed at the back of your property, if adjacent to an alley or public walkway, this will assist emergency services.
Fines for violations of these regulations range between $100 and $300.
Property addressing regulations are found in part 14 of the Community Standards Bylaw. This is an overview of these regulations. Please refer to the actual bylaw for more detailed information. Original copies of the bylaw are available at the City Clerk's office.
