Every swimming pool, as defined by the By-law, is required to be completely enclosed by a gated fence. Whether the fence is new or existing, a permit is required before the swimming pool can be installed.
All documents and information for a swimming pool fence application can be obtained below. It is recommended you review the Swimming Pool Fence By-law PS-5 and Fence By-law PS-6 prior to applying for your permit.
