General principles

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.

Prohibitions and restrictions – residential zone

Prohibitions and restrictions – commercial or industrial zone
