Permits and authorizations

Montréal Construction and Conversion of Buildings By-law (11-018) is now in effect in Pierrefonds-Roxboro.

Residential swimming pools safety

The safety of our children is a priority in our borough. Before you buy or install an in-ground, above ground or inflatable pool, we recommend that you see article 143 of the Pierrefonds-Roxboro Borough's zoning by-law CA29 0040.

Inspections will take place throughout the summer and statements of offence may be issued without further notice.
