An Official Plan outlines how land in a municipality should be used and is updated to reflect changes in the community and economy in accordance with the Ontario Planning Act.

It is prepared in part, with input from the community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of the community.

An Official Plan addresses issues, such as:

  • Where new housing, businesses, and industry will go;
  • What services will be needed (ex. roads, water, infrastructure, parks and schools); and
  • When, and in what order, parts of your community will grow

The current Official Plan can be reviewed: Official Plan of 2011 with Official Plan Schedules (Maps) found here: OP Schedules.

The Municipality is in the early stages of the Official Plan Review.

The Background Report for the new Official Plan can be reviewed here: Background Report

We are inviting citizens, friends and interested persons to share ideas, join in dialog and consider each other’s points of view about the future of the Municipality.

Public sessions are upcoming and feedback can be provided anytime to or by calling/visiting the office 705-843-2033. We ask everyone to share information with those you know, whenever you can to reach as many as we can.
