For safety and aesthetical reasons, the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux adopted a bylaw concerning fences, whether in a residential, commercial or industrial zone.
Anyone contravening to any provision of Bylaw 623 is liable to a $50 to $2,000 fine when the offender is a natural person or to a $50 to $4,000 fine when the offender is a legal person.
No permit is required for the installation of a fence. However, in commercial and industrial zones, prior approval by the building inspector is required.
General prohibitions and restrictions
Prohibitions and restrictions – residential zone
Prohibitions and restrictions – commercial or industrial zone
In commercial and industrial zones, a plan showing the location, design and materials of proposed fences must first be submitted to the Building Inspector (or of his representative) for approval.
These guidelines are for information only and hold no legal value. The official text written in the bylaw takes precedence.
