Building Numbers

The Street Addressing information pamphlet (PDF, 857 Kb, 4 pages) is a guide for the placement of address numbers on the building.

Don't take a chance not knowing your house / building number. It is IMPORTANT.


A street address is obtained from the Lands & Survey Department shortly after the Building Permit is issued by the Planning Department.
