Naming and Numbering of Properties

By-law 2014-13 (Numbering of Properties) regulates the numbering of lots and building suites within the City of Sault Ste. Marie.

By-law 2014-14 (Naming of Private Roadways) regulates the naming of Private Roadways and the numbering of lots and building suites thereon within the City of Sault Ste. Marie.

Highlights

A "lot" means a portion of land under one ownership, other than a highway, located within the City. A "building suite" means a single room or series of rooms of complementary use, operated under a single tenancy, which may be a building or part of a building. This includes dwelling units and individual or complementary rooms for business and personal service occupancies. 

Whenever a private roadway is constructed within the City, the Engineering Services Department, upon giving proper public notice with Section 48 of the Municipal Act, will allocate a name to a private roadway.
 
The Chief Building Official (CBO) is authorized to allocate a new lot a number conforming to the numbers of other lots and building suites. Whenever a new building suite is constructed or created on a lot within the city, the CBO is authorized to allocate said building suite a number conforming to the numbers of other lots and building suites. No owner shall display an incorrect number.
 
The owner of the lot is required to display this number compliant with the following standards:
 
  • The number affixed shall be of such a size as to be easily visible from the private roadway named in the address and shall be easily visible at night from said private roadway; and
  • The number shall be in plain block numbering, and not in script or written numbers.
