Created from elements extracted from the coat of arms
, the City shield is wreathed in pine branches and gold maple leaves.
The shield is for use on official internal corporate documents such as Council reports and resolutions and other regulatory applications (building permits, Provincial Offences Act forms, vendor cheques, tax forms, etc.).
The words 'The Corporation of the City of Sault Ste. Marie' or 'The City of Sault Ste. Marie' must accompany the placement of the shield to identify the document as originating from the City.
