A Message from the Mayor

My main message is be safe this long weekend.

We have established an after hours By-Law service. If you have a complaint or questions regarding a by-law on the weekend, holidays or after hours Monday to Friday, call the Municipal office at 705-738-3800 (or 1-800-374-4009), then enter 311 and you will be connected to the after hours service.

Private parks and campgrounds may open to enable preparation for the season and to allow access to trailers and recreational vehicles whose owners have a full season contract. Owners of trailers or recreational vehicles within private parks and campgrounds that have a full season contract should contact their park operator/manager for more information.

The yard waste ban is still in effect at our transfer stations. It a non-essential service and our priority is on allowing the safe disposal of household garbage and recyclables.

The MNRF has advised that they will be lifting their Fire Restricted Zone for our zone at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, May 16th. Burn permits are still required and will be made available online through the Municipality of Trent Lakes website. Remember you are not allowed to daytime burn between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm from April 1st to October 31st.

Boat launches and golf courses are open as of Saturday, May 16, 2020. Two institutions of summer. I hope many of our residents will have an opportunity to enjoy them.

Keep your distancing of 2 m (6 feet) and wash your hands! While the army is still in long term care homes helping out, and restrictions begin to slowly be lifted, we should not be lolled into thinking we are getting back to business as usual.

According to the Essential Business/Workplace list, short term rentals in rental accommodations booked after April 4, 2020 must only be provided to individuals who are ‘in need’ of housing during the emergency period. The in need may be isolating from a family member who is symptomatic, or in need while construction is performed at principle residence, etc. However, OPP is prepared to investigate complaints of non-compliance.

Please observe and respect that the 5 person limit is still in place for all activities.

We have done well, now let us keep it up. We don’t want any setbacks after coming so far. I encourage you to continue on course, take a bit of time to enjoy the recent changes but remain diligent in protecting the health of yourself and your loved ones.

If you have a concern of non-compliance, you can contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 to discuss and report it.
