Local municipalities are responsible for the calculation of new civic addresses and installation of property number signs for all new developments.
Bell Canada obtains new civic address numbers from property owners when phone is connected.
Local municipalities advise County staff of all proposed road name changes, road extensions, and new roads.
County staff maintain a Road Registry (to ensure no road name duplication) and a database of all addresses assigned. Staff also update number ranges and digital mapping.
