Rural Addressing

What is Rural Addressing and why do I need it?
Rural Addressing is a standardized system which assigns an address to rural properties throughout a municipality to allow them to be quickly and easily identified by emergency response agencies (police, fire, ambulance), service providers, residents and non-residents

Is the Rural Address the same as a Mailing Address?
No. Your current Canada Post mailing address will not change.

How do I get a Rural Address?
All new residential developments require a Rural Address. The fee for Rural Addressing is $50.00. Replacement signs are $50.00.
