Addressing New Subdivisions
Municipal addressing within new residential subdivisions is typically assigned 1 to 2 years prior to construction. Please contact the Clerks Department if you would like to confirm the address for a particular lot prior to purchase.
Property Identification Signs
Property owners are required to display a municipal street address on every improved property. The reflective green and white property identification signs are recommended for rural properties as they can be easily seen at night.
How to purchase a Property Identification Sign:
- Make an order through our Online Services.
- Fill out the order form in-person at our municipal office (or leave in Drop Box with cheque after-hours).
- Send order form via mail, along with a cheque.
The green and white signs are often called 911 signs as they were recommended for use as part of the 911 Emergency System. Your "emergency number" and "municipal address" are one and the same.
It is also mandatory to display a municipal address on properties in urban areas. The green and white signs may be used, but other types of numbers may be placed on the building. Such numbers must be visible from the road and illuminated at night. For emergency services it is most important that your municipal street address is visible day or night, and not be blocked from view by trees or shrubbery.

Change of Address - Municipal Street Addressing Policy
The Township has a Municipal Street Addressing Policy for change of address requests that permits the reassignment of select municipal numbers. The Township can only consider a change of address request for the following numbers providing that the change meets the criteria set out in the policy COR-POL-110: four (4), thirteen (13), and fourteen (14). This means that only these numbers can be considered for reassignment. The change of address request must also be approved by the Township Clerk and Fire Chief.
