Municipal Numbering of a Property

Different kinds of developments need different kinds of municipal addressing or municipal numbering. In particular, those developments that result in new properties.

Emergency services, property assessments, building and other permits all need correct municipal addresses.

ExpandWhen is revised addressing required?

Revised addressing may be required when severance of property is needed through:

  • Committee of Adjustment consent

  • Development of site as condominium
  • New construction results in an additional building or entrance on the property requiring a separate address
  • New construction results in main entrance to building being on a different street (corner lot)
