  • Restriction on the use of gas-powered leaf blowers now in effect

At a meeting held on February 13, 2023, Council unanimously adpoted an amendment to By-law R-2014-094 concerning nuisances to restrict the use of gas-powered leaf blowers.

The following restrictions are now in effect for both residents and landscapers operating in the City:

The use of gas-powered leaf blowers is prohibited at all times:

  • June 15 to September 15

Gas-powered leaf blowers may be used before June 15 and after September 15:

  • Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sunday and statutory holidays, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Electric leaf blowers may be used at any time.

Policy changes regarding gas-powered leaf blowers have been adopted in recent years in small, medium and large municipalities. The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux is joining the movement to address the concerns of its residents and to ensure quieter summers, a better quality of life and the protection of the health of its residents, while minimizing the effects on the environment.
