Tool sheds

Each house is allowed one tool shed, providing that the shed:
• is used to store garden tools;
• covers an area of no more than 12 m2;
• stands no more than 3 m high;
• is located in the backyard at least 0.75 m from the property lines;
• has an outer appearance in keeping with that of the main building.

Before starting construction, contact the Citizens’ Office at 311 to make sure your project respects regulations.

A permit is not required for the installation of a garden shed. However, the project must conform to the bylaws in effect.
