What is an Official Plan?

An official plan describes council's policies on how land within the Township should be used. It is prepared with input from the public/ members of the community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of your community, and addresses the requirements of the Planning Act and the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS).

An official plan deals mainly with issues such as:

  • where new housing, business, industry, offices and shops will be located
  • what services like roads, watermains, sewers, parks and schools will be needed
  • when, and in what order, parts of your community will grow
  • where resource areas such as farming, gravel pits & quarries and forestry are located and are to be protected
  • identifying areas of hazard lands such as flood plains, unstable soils or slopes, and contaminated sites
  •  where natural features such as wetlands, lakes and rivers are located.

The Official Plan:

  • lets the public know what the municipality's general land use planning policies are
  • makes sure that growth is coordinated and meets the community’s needs
  • helps all members of the community understand how their land may be used now and in the future
  • helps decide where roads, watermains, sewers, waste disposal, parks and other services will be built
  • provides a framework for establishing municipal zoning by-laws to set local regulations and standards, like the size of lots and height of buildings
  • provides a way to evaluate and settle conflicting land uses while meeting local, regional and provincial interests
  • shows council's commitment to the future growth of your community.

 A copy of the Official Plan text and map schedules are available for viewing or download from this website.  The documents can also be viewed at the Township Office.  Please note, there have been some amendments to the Official Plan which may not have been consolidated with the document available on the website.  For questions related to the Official Plan you may also contact the Township Planner at 613-735-6291.

PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File # Z-2017-06)

The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to satisfy conditions of approval for County of Renfrew Application for Consent File No. B99/16. The proposed severed lot is occupied by an existing dwelling that is surplus to the needs of the owner who is a farmer with additional lands in the area. As the area of the farm property which is occupied by the existing dwelling is zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) an amendment is required to rezone the area of the severed lot to recognize the location of the existing dwelling and to identify that those lands are not suitable for extraction. The retained lot is required to be rezoned to prohibit residential uses on the agricultural lands and to prohibit the existing structures which are used for equipment storage from being used for livestock or manure storage in the future due to their proximity to the surplus farm dwelling.

The effect of the amendment is to establish an Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two (A-E22) zone to prohibit residential uses and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently zoned Agriculture (A) to Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two-holding (A-E22-h). The effect of the amendment is to also establish an Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three (EMR-E3) zone to prohibit the use of the existing structures on the retained for Livestock or Manure Storage and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) to Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three-holding (EMR-E3-h) . The effect of the amendment is also to establish a Rural Residential-Exception Eleven (RR-E11) zone with special provisions to recognize the existing dwelling and establish a reduced setback for a dwelling from lands zoned Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) and to rezone the severed lot from Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) to Rural Residential-Exception Eleven-holding (RR-E11-h).

All of the subject lands are being rezoned to a holding zone where the principle of development would be established by this Amendment but the holding symbol would remain in place until the conditions for removal of the holding symbol as established by resolution of Council are met, including the entering into of a Development Agreement with the Township to provide notice related to the agriculture and potential aggregate uses in the area and to reinforce the prohibition on the use of the existing structures on the retained for livestock or manure storage.

The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 23 Mud Lake Road (County Road No.19) within Part Lots 4 and 5, Concession 1, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

PLANNING ACT, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, AS AMENDED

NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY

THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-Law No. 2017-06-027 on the 20th day of June, 2017 under Sections 34 and 35.1(1) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.

PURPOSE, EFFECT and LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (File No. Z-2016-11)

The following provides an overall summary of what is proposed.

Why is there a Policy Change for Secondary Dwelling Units?

Municipalities are required to put policies in place to permit secondary dwelling units which are intended to help implement the Province’s long-term affordable housing strategy.

What are Secondary Dwelling Units?

A Secondary Dwelling Unit is a self-contained residential dwelling unit in which food preparation, eating, living, sleeping and sanitary facilities are provided for the exclusive use of the occupants of the dwelling unit, which can be located within a house, within an accessory structure (i.e. above a garage) or as a second dwelling separate from the main house which will be referred to as a coach house in the planning documents. Secondary Dwelling Units may also be known as basement/accessory apartments, two-unit housing or granny flats but for clarity the specific definitions in the By-law should be referred to.

Where do the new policies apply?
The proposed Amendments apply throughout the Township of Laurentian Valley and therefore no Key Map is attached.

What will the new policies do?

Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted in most single detached, semi-detached and townhouse/rowhouse dwellings, subject to meeting certain zoning requirements. Secondary Dwelling Units must still meet all Building Code, Fire Code and Property Standard regulations. The Amendment to the Comprehensive Zoning By-law Amendment establishes more detailed specific requirements. A corresponding Official Plan Amendment (OPA No. 12 - File O-2016-02) has also been adopted by Council and submitted to the County of Renfrew for Approval to establish broader policies outlining the more general principles around where and how Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted. This corresponding Zoning By-law Amendment will become effective with the County’s Approval of OPA No. 12. A corresponding Registration By-law 2017-06-029 has also been passed to assist the Township in making sure these units are safe, legal and liveable and comply with the Ontario Building Code, Fire Code, etc.

Under the new policies:

Only one Secondary Dwelling unit is permitted for each permitted primary residential dwelling type.

Secondary Dwelling Units are permitted either: within a single detached, semi-detached or row/townhouse dwelling; or as a second dwelling unit on the same property but in its own detached building (which will be referred to as a coach house) or as part of another type of detached accessory building (i.e. above a garage).

There must be adequate servicing available which must be demonstrated by a supporting study for lots on private services that are less than 0.8 hectares (2 acres).

There must be one parking space for the second unit, in addition to parking required for the primary unit. This may be a tandem parking space.

Secondary Dwelling Units are not permitted on lots where residential uses are not a permitted use in the zoning for the property or within lodging houses or group homes or on hazard lands.

No severances shall be permitted for new lots to separate the Secondary Dwelling Unit from the Primary Dwelling.

Specific definitions are established for the Primary Dwelling Unit, Secondary Dwelling Unit and Coach Houses (which are a specific type of secondary dwelling unit).

The full provisions are as detailed in the draft Amendments available from the Township Office or the Township website at www.lvtownship.ca

Registration?

The Registration By-law will be used to assist the Township with complying with provincial legislation through amendments to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law, while at the same time making sure these units are safe, legal and liveable. Before registration is approved, it would have to be demonstrated that the registered units comply with the Ontario Building Code and Fire Code, as required.

PLEASE NOTE: Per Section 34.(19.1) of the Planning Act there is no appeal in respect of the by-law that implement the policies for second units (referred to as secondary dwelling units in Township documents) described in Section 16.(3) of the Planning Act.

Privacy Disclosure: As one of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open and accessible, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Township to such persons as the Township deems appropriate, including anyone requesting such information. Please note that by submitting any of this information, you are providing the Township with your consent to use and disclose this information as part of the planning process.

COPIES of the amendment and any additional information relating to the Zoning By-law Amendment File No. Z2016-11 (By-law 2017-06-028) or the corresponding Official Plan Amendment No. 12(OPA No. 12)/File No. O-2016-02, and Registration By-law No. 2017-06-029, are available for inspection during regular office hours at the Township Office and on the Township’s website at www.lvtownship.ca Any questions related to the By-law should be directed to Lauree

NOTICE OF ADOPTION

OF AN OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT BY

THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY

 

TAKE NOTICE that Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-law No. 2017-06-027, thereby adopting Official Plan Amendment No.11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley on the 20th  day of June, 2017, in accordance with Sections 16.(3), 17 and 21 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.

 

PURPOSE & EFFECT OF OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT N0.12 (OPA NO. 12) • File No 0-2016-02

The following provides an overall summary of the Purpose, Effect and Location of Official Plan Amendment (OPA No. 12)- File No. 0 -2016-02.

Why is there a Policy Change for Secondary Dwelling Units?

Municipalities are required to put policies in place to permit secondary dwelling units which are intended to help implement the Province's long-term affordable housing strategy.

What are Secondary Dwelling Units?

A Secondary Dwelling Unit is a self-contained residential dwelling unit in which food preparation, eating, living, sleeping and sanitary facilities are provided for the exclusive use of the occupants of the dwelling unit, which can be located within a house, within an accessory structure (i.e. above a garage) or as a second dwelling separate from the main house which will be referred to as a coach house in the planning documents. Secondary Dwelling Units may also be known as basement/accessory apartments, two-unit housing or granny flats but for clarity the specific definitions in the By-law should be referred to.

Where do the new policies apply?

The proposed Amendment applies throughout the Township of Laurentian Valley. General Official Plan policies will be established which if met will allow a Secondary Dwelling Unit to be permitted without the need for an Amendment to the Official Plan.

What will the new policies do?

Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted in most single detached, semi-detached and townhouse/rowhouse dwellings, subject to certain requirements. Secondary Dwelling Units must still meet all Building Code, Fire Code and Property Standard regulations. The effect of the Official Plan Amendment is to establish broader policies outlining the principles around where and how Secondary Dwelling Units will be permitted with the effect of the Corresponding Zoning By-law Amendment By-law No. 2017-06-028 (File Z2016-11) being to establish the more detailed specific requirements. A corresponding Registration By-law 2017-06-029 has also been passed to assist the Township in making sure these units are safe, legal and liveable and comply with the Ontario Building Code, Fire Code, etc.

Under the new policies:

• Only one Secondary Dwelling unit is permitted for each permitted primary residential dwelling type.

• Secondary Dwelling Units are permitted either: within a single detached, semi-detached or row/townhouse dwelling; or as a second dwelling unit on the same property but in its own detached building (which will be referred to as a coach house) or as part of another type of detached accessory building (i.e. above a garage).

• There must be adequate servicing available which must be demonstrated by a supporting study for lots on private services that are less than 0.8 hectares (2 acres).

• Secondary Dwelling Units are not permitted on lots where residential uses are not a permitted or on hazard lands.

• No severances shall be permitted for new lots to separate the Secondary Dwelling Unit from the Primary Dwelling.

• The full provisions are as detailed in the proposed amendments available from the Township Office or the Township website at www.lvtownship.ca

LOCATION OF AMENDMENT

No Key Map is attached as OPA No. 12 (File No. 0 -2016-02) affects all lands in the Township of Laurentian Valley.

A COPY of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and any additional related information is available for inspection during regular office hours at the Township Office or at the County of Renfrew Planning Department.

PLEASE NOTE: Per Section 17.(24.1) of the Planning Act there is no appeal in respect of the policies, requirements or standards for second units (referred to as secondary dwelling units in Township documents) described in Section 16.(3) of the Planning Act.

PLEASE NOTE: One of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efficient.

Media Release
For Immediate Release: August 1, 2017
West Nile Virus Found in Mosquitoes in Renfrew County

Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus (WNv) have been found in Laurentian Valley Township around the intersection of Highway 41 and Whitewater Road. This is the first time that mosquitoes have tested positive for WNv in Renfrew County and District since the health unit began monitoring mosquitoes for WNv in 2005. Mosquito traps are set up on a weekly basis across the region during the summer months. There have not been any reported human cases of WNv so far in 2017.
“The Renfrew County and District Health Unit has been actively monitoring mosquitoes for West Nile virus” says Dr. Kieran Moore, Acting Medical Officer of Health. “This recent finding of local mosquitoes carrying WNv serves as a reminder that even though the risk is low, individuals should take precautions to prevent bites and reduce breeding sites”.

About West Nile Virus

WNv is an infection found in birds, and carried by mosquitoes which feed on infected birds. WNv is spread to humans and animals through bites by infected mosquitoes. 4 out of 5 people infected will not show any symptoms. Others may see early symptoms of fever, headache, body aches, skin rash, and occasionally, vomiting and nausea. Of those showing symptoms, approximately 1 in 150 may develop more serious symptoms such as stiff neck, confusion, tremors, numbness or sudden sensitivity to light. If you believe you are experiencing symptoms of WNv, please contact your healthcare provider.
The risk of being infected by the West Nile virus is low, but now is a good time to reduce your risk by the following actions:

Cover up when outside by:
• Wearing light-coloured clothing such as long-sleeved shirts, jackets, long pants, hats and socks, especially between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
• Applying federally-registered insect repellent (containing DEET) on exposed skin to limit exposure to mosquitoes. Follow label instructions for proper application.
Clean up by:
• Removing any standing water around your home, cottage or campsite. Mosquitoes need stagnant water to lay their eggs, and even small amounts will do such as that found in bird baths, old tires and unused containers.
• Keeping bushes and shrubs clear of overgrowth and debris. Adult mosquitoes also like to rest in dense shrubbery.

• Turning over compost piles on a regular basis.
• Making sure homes and businesses are “bug tight” by ensuring windows and door screens fit tightly.
For more information about West Nile virus including tips on how you can “Fight the Bite”, please visit the health unit website at www.rcdhu.com

PEMBROKE KIN CLUB TO HOST ANNUAL KIDS & COPS FISHING DERBY

 

(PEMBROKE, ON)  - Upper Ottawa Valley OPP officers will be helping children learn the joys of fishing this summer during the annual Kin Club of Pembroke Kids and Cops Fishing Derby on Saturday July 29, 2017. 

Children will join local Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers from 9 am until 12 noon at the Marina Breakwater in Pembroke. Free to children 12 and under, the catch and release derby is hosted by the Pembroke Kin Club and will feature giveaways and prizes for the largest fish caught in various age categories.  Young anglers are asked to bring their own rods, reels and bait as well as an adult buddy.

This event is sponsored by Fishing Forever, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding worthwhile fishing, conservation and education projects. It is also supported by the Police Association of Ontario, Canadian Tire, the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP and the Pembroke Kin Club.

According to Bob Izumi, chair of Fishing Forever, there is nothing that puts a smile on a kid’s face faster than catching a fish. “That’s why I love to create opportunities for children and families to go fishing,” states Izumi. “Fishing is one of the very best ways for parents and other adults to establish productive and healthy relationships with children.”

PEMBROKE MAN RECEIVES OPP COMMISSIONER’S CITATION FOR LIFESAVING

 

(PEMBROKE, ON) – At the Pembroke Police Services Board meeting on July 27, 2017, held at Pembroke City Hall, Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment Commander Inspector Mark Wolfe presented Daniel Hurry with the Commissioner’s Citation for Lifesaving. 

On October 19, 2015 Daniel Hurry rescued a distraught woman after she wrapped a cord around her neck and jumped from a foot bridge in the City of Pembroke.  He quickly untied the cord and the woman landed safely in the shallow river below.  The temperature was well below freezing as he encouraged her to walk to shore where he provided her with care until police and paramedics arrived.

Inspector Wolfe praised Hurry’s actions and stated, “His selfless actions that day are truly commendable.  He saved the life of a member of our community and a tragedy was avoided. He is very deserving of the Commissioner’s Citation for Lifesaving.”

OPP REMIND MOTORISTS OF CONSTRUCTION ZONE SAFETY

Speeding fines doubled when workers are present

(PEMBROKE, ON) – With many road construction projects underway in the detachment area the Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding motorists of the importance of construction zone safety and reducing speed when entering construction zones.

Drivers are advised to proceed with caution when approaching a construction zone and to obey all warning signs, people and/or devices that are directing traffic through the area.  It is an offence under the Highway Traffic Act (HTA) to disobey STOP or SLOW signs displayed by a traffic-control person.

Lower speeds are often posted in construction zones to increase worker safety and to reflect increased road hazards such as construction vehicles, uneven or gravel surfaces and narrowed lanes.  Motorists are reminded that speeding fines are doubled in construction zones when workers are present.

Information on roads and construction projects in Ontario can be accessed through the Ministry of Transportation’s Traveller Information Services, which provides road information for provincial highways in Ontario, by calling 5-1-1 or by visiting the MTO Ontario 511 website at www.ontario.ca/511

OPP WARN OF SCAM SURFACING IN AREA

 

(PEMBROKE, ON) – The Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to warn residents of a scam that has recently surfaced in the area.  The scam is often referred to as the “Fake CEO” scam.  It typically begins with fraudsters gaining access to a high-ranking  executives email account or creating a similar email address of the president or person in charge of an organization.  The scammer then sends a realistic looking email requesting urgent wire transfers, for what appears to be legitimate business reasons, to those within the organization who have the authority to move money.  Believing that the request is real, the employee transfers the money only to later find out that the email was a scam and the money is gone.

 

The following tips are suggested to help avoid falling victim to the Fake CEO scam:

  • Establish a standard process that requires multiple approvals for money transfers
  • Take a careful look at the senders email address.  It may be very similar to the real one, with only one or two letters different.
  • Double-check with executives when they send wire transfer requests by email, even when they look legitimate.  Don’t use the contact information provided in the message and don’t reply to the email.
  • Ensure your computer systems are secure, keep antivirus software up to date, and encourage all employees to use strong passwords to protect their email accounts from hackers.
  • Limit the amount of employee information available online and on social media. Fraudsters use it to find potential victims and time their targeted fraud.

  

If a scam artist contacts you or if you have been defrauded contact your local police service or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or visit their website at www.antifraudcentre.ca

FROM/DE: OPP Highway Safety Division        DATE: June 27, 2017

SPEEDERS DRIVE ROAD DEATHS UP; OPP TO CRACK DOWN          

 

(ORILLIA, ON) – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is pointing to speeding drivers as the number one cause in road fatalities so far this year, with the death toll in this category 76 per cent higher than this time last year.

 

As of June 26, 2017 speeding has been linked with 30 road deaths on OPP-patrolled roads, compared to 17 in 2016.  

Excessive speed continues to threaten the safety of other road users with more than 1,400 charges so far this year laid by the OPP against drivers clocked at 50 km/h or more over the posted speed limit.   

During the Canada Day long weekend, OPP officers throughout the province will set their sights on speeding and all other forms of aggressive driving. These behaviours include following too closely, unsafe passing and lane changes, failing to yield right-of-way, road rage and other dangerous, high-risk driving behaviours.   

QUOTES

“For some drivers, instances of speeding and other forms of aggressive driving are frequent and for others, they are part of their everyday driving behaviour.  Last year, our officers laid more than 240,000 speeding charges against drivers who took the lives of other road users into their own hands.”

- OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support        

“Aggressive driving-related deaths have dramatically increased in Ontario in the last year. We all have a responsibility to ensure our roads are safe. This long weekend, remember to slow down, drive safely and respect your fellow motorists.”

– Marie-France Lalonde, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services

“Even one life lost to reckless or dangerous driving is one life too many. Excessive speeding is completely unacceptable and I urge everyone travelling on the roads this Canada Day Long Weekend to slow down and stay safe. We take our work with our enforcement and other road safety partners to save more lives seriously and remind everyone of the real-life consequences of street racing – all drivers who put others on the road at risk by driving aggressively – could face a jail term of up to six month, fines of up to $10,000 and prolonged licence suspension upon conviction.

– Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation

PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

HIGHWAY 148 FROM PEMBROKE TO GREENWOOD ROAD

(G.W.P.214-00-00) (This section is also known as Pembroke Street East);

AND HIGHWAY 148 FROM GREENWOOD ROAD TO

THE QUEBEC BORDER (G.W.P. 239-00-00), COUNTY OF RENFREW

PROJECT OVERVIEW

In April 2015, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and their Consultant IBI Group commenced the Preliminary Design and Class Environmental (EA) Study for Highway 148 from Pembroke to the Québec border (5.0 km).

The study involves a review of the existing and future highway needs, recommendations for operational and safety improvements, pavement rehabilitation and active transportation. The study also includes determining the most appropriate strategy for the removal and replacement of the former Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) bridge on Highway 148, between Greenwood Road and Hazley Bay Drive. This bridge is nearing the end of its service life. To expedite replacement of the bridge, the study has been broken into two separate projects. The recommended improvements associated with each project include:

Highway 148 - West of Angus Campbell Drive to Greenwood Road, 3.2 km (GWP 214-00-00):

Pavement rehabilitation throughout the study area;

Urbanization and provision of a two-way left-turn lane between Angus Campbell Drive and Drive-In Road;

Paved shoulders between Drive-In Road and Greenwood Road; and,

Intersection improvements, including traffic signals at Drive-In Road.

Other improvements include entrance modifications/removals within the study limits.

Highway 148 - Greenwood Road to the Québec Border, 1.8 km (GWP 239-00-00):

Pavement rehabilitation throughout the study area;

Paved shoulders between Greenwood Road and the inter-provincial bridge; and

Replacement of the former CPR bridge crossing at Highway 148 with a recreational trail culvert. To accommodate the bridge removal, it is proposed to undertake a short term closure of Highway 148 at the CPR bridge and temporarily detour traffic onto municipal and county roads (Hazley Bay Drive, Forest Park Road, Beachburg Road, and Greenwood Road). As part of this work, Hazley Bay Drive and Forest Park. Road will be resurfaced and a temporary connection provided between Hazley Bay Drive and Forest Park Road.

PROCESS

These studies are following the approved planning process for a Group ‘B’ undertaking in accordance with

the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000), with the opportunity

for public input throughout. Two Transportation Environmental Study Reports (TESR) will be prepared and

made available for a 30-day review period, with notices posted at that time to explain the review process

and identify locations where the TESRs will be available.

PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE

A second and final PIC has been arranged to allow the public and interest groups an opportunity to review

and comment on the results of the assessment and evaluation process, and to present the preferred

alternative for the highway.

Date: July 6, 2017

Time: 4:00 to 7:00 PM (open-house)

Location: Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre,

1 International Drive, Pembroke, ON

The PIC will consist of an informal drop-in centre with display boards. MTO staff and their consultant will

be available to answer any questions.

OPP RESPONSE PREVENTS AFTER-PROM BUSH PARTY IN LAURENTIAN HILLS

 

(LAURENTIAN HILLS, ON) – – On the evening of June 10, 2017 officers from the Upper Ottawa Valley Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment received information from the public regarding an after-prom bush party set to take place on Laurentian Hills municipally owned land on Leader Road. 

Officers responded and found approximately 20 to 30 tents set up on the land in anticipation of the party and a large area for a bonfire had already been prepared.  Two vehicle loads of youths were already on scene at the time of police arrival.  The youths were warned for offences under the Liquor License Act (LLA) and sent home with a designated driver.

Police then set up a RIDE program on Leader Road from 930pm until midnight.  Officers turned away dozens and dozens of vehicles, including a bus, full of youths enroute to the party.

Detachment Commander Mark Wolfe praised the work of the responding officers and stated, “Events such as this pose a serious risk to the safety and well-being of our youth.  The officer’s timely actions to prevent the party from taking place demonstrates our commitment to public safety and the safety of our youth.”

There is a heightened risk of electric shock when water makes contact with electrical systems that could seriously injure or kill you. Follow these electrical safety steps; it could save your life, or the lives of first responders and utility personnel working in the area.

Flooding has occurred
 1. Do not enter your basement if you know or suspect water has risen above the level of electrical outlets, baseboard heaters, furnace or is near your electrical panel. Electricity can move through water or wet flooring and cause a severe electrical shock.

2. In the event that flood water has risen above outlets, baseboard heaters or your furnace, covers power cords, or is near the electrical panel, contact your local electric utility immediately and arrange for them to disconnect power to your home.

3. Watch out for downed powerlines in flood-affected areas. If you see one, stay back 10 metres or the length of a school bus and call 9-1-1 and your local electric utility to report it.

Evacuation due to flooding

If you need to leave your home because flooding is imminent and there is no floodwater in your basement:

1. Move electrical appliances and devices out of your home or to an area in the house above the expected level of flood water. Do not attempt to use these products if they have been in contact with flood water.

2. Watch out for downed powerlines in flood-affected areas. If you see one, stay back 10 metres or the length of a school bus and call 9-1-1 and your local electric utility to report it.

Returning home after a flood

If you have water contact or damage to your electrical system:

1. If water in your basement has risen above the electrical outlets, baseboard heaters, furnace or electrical panel, DO NOT enter the basement until the power has been disconnected by the local electric utility.

2. If your electrical system has been affected, your utility may not be able to restore power to your property until damage has been assessed and necessary repairs have been made.

3. Hire a Licensed Electrical Contractor to evaluate your home’s electrical system to determine if it is safe to have the local electric utility restore power to your home.

  • The contractor will file for a permit with the ESA so there is a record of the work;
  • When the contractor completes the work, the contractor will notify ESA and the ESA Inspector will confirm work has been done safely and power can be reconnected;
  • ESA will inform the utility that it is safe to reconnect;
  • The utility will reconnect when it is able to do so.
  • Ask the contractor for a copy of the ESA Certificate of Inspection for your records and insurance.

<![CDATA[Cleaning Up After a Flood]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/flooding-information/cleaning-up-after-a-flood-2092.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/flooding-information/cleaning-up-after-a-flood-2092.htmlTue, 23 May 2017 11:23:01 -0600Cleaning Up After a Flood

After your home has been flooded it is important to clean up as soon as possible to protect your health and prevent further damage to your home and belongings. Residents who have been evacuated should not return home after a flood until cleanup is finished and a supply of safe water and proper disposal of human waste and garbage has been arranged.

What are the health hazards after a flood?

When you arrive home, no part of a flooded installation can be assumed safe, not even the main breaker for the power supply. Before electrical equipment is tested or worked on, all power should be disconnected at the service panel with the main switch being left in the "off" position until work has been completed. In the event that flood water has risen above outlets, covers power cords, or is near the service panel contact your Local Distribution Company to disconnect power to your home. Once power has been turned off or disconnected a licensed electrical contractor should be contacted to determine if electrical equipment (wires, plugs) need to be replaced.

Do not plug in or attempt to use electrical appliances that have been wet until they have been checked or serviced by an electrician or service agency. Ask your electrician, or contact the manufacturer or dealer for the nearest service location.

Floodwaters are usually very dirty. During a flood, water leaves the normal course of streambeds and washes over the countryside. The floodwaters then come in contact with farmyards, manure piles, refuse heaps, outhouses, overflowing septic systems and other sources of disease, resulting in heavy contamination of the water. The contaminated water can make people sick and items that have been in contact with the floodwaters need to be handled properly. If flood damaged areas are not cleaned properly and quickly there is a danger of mould growing. Mould can be harmful to some individuals if inhaled or swallowed.

How do I properly clean up my home after a flood?

In situations of extensive flood damage or if floodwaters show evidence of being heavily contaminated by sewage, it may be necessary to do a more extensive cleanup in the home (carpets, crawl spaces, heating ducts). If you have extensive water damage or if wide spread mould problem develops professional assistance should be obtained.

In situations with a small amount of flood damage with no indication of sewage contamination of flood waters, follow these cleaning directions as recommended by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

Contact your insurance agent immediately.

Set up a step-by-step action plan to:

  • remove all water, mud and other debris;
  • dispose of contaminated household goods;
  • rinse away contamination inside the home;
  • remove the rinse water;
  • clean and dry out your house and salvageable possessions.

Be prepared to make difficult decisions about what to keep and what to throw out. Household items that have been contaminated by sewage, or that have been wet for a long time, will have to be bagged, tagged and discarded according to local regulations.

Assemble equipment and supplies:

  • gloves, masks (N95 respirators) and other protective gear;
  • pails, mops, squeegees and plastic garbage bags unscented detergent;
  • large containers for wet bedding and clothing, and lines to hang them to dry;
  • you may also need to rent extension cords, submersible pumps, wet/dry shop vacuums, and dehumidifiers or heaters.

Store valuable papers that have been damaged in a freezer until you have time to work on them.

Remove standing water with pumps or pails, then with a wet/dry shop vacuum.

Remove all soaked and dirty materials and debris, including wet insulation and drywall, residual mud and soil, furniture, appliances, clothing and bedding.

Hose down any dirt sticking to walls and furnishings, then rinse several times, removing the remaining water with a wet/dry shop vacuum. Rinse, then clean all floors as quickly as possible. Flooring that has been deeply penetrated by flood water or sewage should be discarded.

Work from the top down. Break out all ceilings and walls that have been soaked or that have absorbed water. Remove materials at least 500 mm (20 in.) above the high-water line. Removing only the lower part of the wall applies if action is taken immediately after the flood or wetting event. Gypsum board walls that have been exposed to high humidity or standing water for a prolonged period of time should be removed in their entirety and discarded. Ceiling tiles and panelling should be treated like drywall.

Wash and wipe/scrub down all affected or flooded surfaces with unscented detergent and water. Rinse. Repeat the process as needed. Concrete surfaces can be cleaned with a solution of TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) in water (one half cup TSP to one gallon of warm water).When using TSP, which is highly corrosive, wear gloves and eye protection.

Surfaces that are dry and/or have not been directly affected by the flood water should be vacuumed with a HEPA vacuum cleaner. Further cleaning of concrete surfaces can be done with TSP. Washable surfaces can be washed with unscented detergent and water. Surface mould on wood can be removed with a vacuum-sander. Do not sand without simultaneous vacuuming. Wood that looks mouldy, after sanding, may need to be replaced.

After cleaning the surfaces, ventilate or dehumidify the house until it is completely dry. Rapid drying is important to prevent mould growth. When the outside weather permits (low humidity and moderate temperature), open doors and windows and hasten the drying process with fans. If the outside weather is not suitable and you notice that drying is not happening fast, use dehumidifying equipment, renting extra units as necessary.

To determine if the outdoor air can help dry the air inside, place a hygrometer in the area to be dried. Let it stabilize then open a window and monitor the Relative Humidity (RH). If it goes down then it means the air is dry enough to assist the drying process. If the RH increases, close the window.

Carpets must be dried within two days. Sewage-soaked carpets must be discarded. Homeowners can't effectively dry large areas of soaked carpets themselves. Qualified professionals are required.

Ensure that all interior cavities and structural members are completely dry (which could take weeks) before closing cavities.

If there is potential that the floodwaters are contaminated by sewage, disinfection is recommended following cleaning. It is important that surfaces that have been in contact with flood water are disinfected to remove bacteria and viruses.

Disinfection of the surfaces must be completed once the cleaning steps above have been completed. When cleaning with a disinfectant be sure to ventilate the room by opening windows and wear rubber boots and waterproof gloves as strong solutions may irritate skin and cause respiratory symptoms.

Walls, hard-surfaced floors and many other household surfaces should be cleaned with soap and water until all visible soil is removed. Once surfaces appear clean disinfect with a solution of 5 ml of household bleach mixed with 1 L of water. Disinfection is recommended because flood waters may be contaminated. Following cleaning it is important that surfaces that have been in contact with flood water are disinfected to remove bacteria and viruses

What precautions should be taken for food and water safety after a flood?

Food and water safety are important after a flood or power outage due to a storm. Follow these guidelines to protect yourself and your family:

If your well has been flooded, it could have been contaminated. Until you can get your well water tested, boil your water rapidly for at least one minute before use, or use bottled water for drinking, making infant formula, juices, cooking, making ice, washing fruits and vegetables or brushing teeth.

Once the flooding has receded you may begin to disinfect your well. For instructions on disinfecting your well click on teh following link to instructions on the Health Unit website at: http://rcdhu.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/water-well-disinfection-instructions.pdf

Food items that have come into contact with floodwaters should be thrown out, with the exception of sealed canned goods. However, the outside of sealed canned goods must be thoroughly washed with clean water and disinfected.

Without electrical power your refrigerator will keep food cool for 4-6 hours. Dispose of all foods that are a high-risk for contamination. These include:

  • fish, poultry and meats, including cold cuts eggs, milk and cheese and other dairy products;
  • soups, stews, casseroles; and
  • any food that may have come in contact with meat juices.

If your chest freezer is full, foods inside should remain safely frozen for up to 48 hours after a power failure. If your freezer is half full, foods inside should remain safely frozen for 24 hours after a power failure. Throw out any food that has been sitting at room temperature for more than 2 hours and if in doubt throw it out!

Flood Recovery Measures-Renfrew County

With the outside temperatures warming up and the holiday weekend approaching, the Renfrew County and District Health Unit would like to advise all residents affected by the recent flooding to take the following precautions:

  • Continue to stay out of flood waters if at all possible to avoid exposure to potentially high levels of harmful bacteria. Recreational water use in lakes and rivers that were heavily flooded should be avoided until water levels return to normal. Be on the lookout for floating debris.
  • Use personal protection during any flood clean-up activities. Wear rubber gloves and other protective clothing including the use of an N95 mask when cleaning up indoors to avoid breathing in potentially harmful airborne contaminants such as mold.
  • Wash your hands with soap and clean water before handling food, after participating in flood clean-up activities and after handling articles contaminated with flood water.
  • Do not eat any foods that have been exposed to flood waters. Canned goods and sealed beverages may be used if these containers can be thoroughly cleaned and dried.
  • Perishable foods in refrigerators should be discarded if the power has been out for more than 4 hours.
  • Frozen foods may be re-frozen if ice crystals are still present and the food was not exposed to flood waters.
  • Contents of sand bags may be contaminated and should not be used on beaches, gardens and sandboxes. Keep sand away from wells and waterways. Check with your local municipal office for more information regarding disposal of sand bags.
  • For more information regarding drinking water safety and testing, septic system concerns and general clean-up precautions please visit www.rcdhu.com

The Health Unit has begun surface water sampling at affected lakes and rivers as well as at our established public beaches in anticipation of the beaches being opened for the season. Status reports will be posted on the Health Unit website as they become available.

During the recent Ottawa River flood event (May 2017), a number of ratepayers have expressed concerns or had questions related to why water levels are higher or lower in particular sections of the Ottawa River and in particular between certain dams.  In order to assist with understanding why this occurs, OPG have indicated to Township Staff the following:

"When flows are high on the Ottawa River, the natural restriction in the river at Klock, located approximately 70 km upstream from Des Joachims GS, restricts water flow and backs water up to the Town of Mattawa. In order to help water move through this narrow section of river, the water level upstream of Des Joachims GS needs to be kept low. This low water level needs to be maintained until river flows have dropped considerably."

This is also further explained in a more general manner on the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website under  FAQ #5.  To read that and other frequently asked questions related to Ottawa River River Planning Regulation Board, click the following link http://www.ottawariver.ca/faq.php

As the program has been activated for all of Laurentian Valley, if you have been impacted by flooding from the Ottawa River or other rivers/water bodies in Laurentian Valley or have experienced basement flooding as a result of the higher than normal water table, you may be eligible for some funding through DRAO subject to meeting eligibility requirements.

Please note:

  • Secondary residences and cottages are not eligible for assistance.
  • Flooding related to sewer backup is not eligible for assistance, except for applications that meet the criteria for special provisions for low-income households.

Applicants are required to provide information demonstrating that damage was related to the natural disaster for which the program was activated. Some examples of documentation are:

  • receipts for items purchased to replace damaged property
  • receipts and/or invoices for disaster-related costs
  • photographs of damaged property
  • written logs of time spent on cleanup

Claims adjustors may request to visit an applicant’s property for the purpose of assessing an application.

Please note that failure to produce adequate supporting documentation may result in delayed payment or an unsuccessful application.

As a reminder, it is important to keep as much information, photos, receipts and documentation as possible, even if you are not sure of what is eligible.  Take pictures of damaged items before you dispose of them. Once the disaster has passed you can then take the time to sort out what is eligible or not.

<![CDATA[County of Renfrew GIS mapping information for Laurentian Valley]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/planning/mapping/county-of-renfrew-gis-mapping-information-for-laurentian-valley-8515.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/planning/mapping/county-of-renfrew-gis-mapping-information-for-laurentian-valley-8515.htmlWed, 17 May 2017 10:49:14 -0600The Township of Laurentian Valley property fabric mapping (also known as MPAC or Assessment mapping) can be accessed through the County of Renfrew's website.  On this site you can create and print maps that show the shape of your property, roads, natural features such as creeks and streams, wetlands, etc.  To access the site, click on the following link: http://www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca/departments/development-and-property/forestry-and-gis/gis/

 

It should be noted that the County has recently changed the online GIS system so if you previously used the website it may take you a few minutes to figure out how to complete certain tasks. The new application is now compatible for all browsers and mobile devices. The old application is no longer operational.  You will still be able to do most of the same functions but there are some things that are different so users of the previous application will need to play with the new application to familiarize yourself with the changes.

 

 It enables users to search for properties, find points of interest, locate street addresses, create maps and perform various other geographic searches in the County of Renfrew.

 

What are some examples of what I can do with Renfrew County Mapping?

find a community site in the County of Renfrew (e.g. hospitals)

locate urban points in the County of Renfrew

discover lakes and waterways in the County of Renfrew

print maps in colour or black and white

print map images at a specific scale of your choice

turn on different map layers to include or remove features such as rivers, roads, contours and properties

conduct a business search or locate a business

measure distances and areas

find vacant land and buildings available for development

students can learn about the natural features of the County of Renfrew

produce sketches for severance applications

produce your own maps for farm and forest management planning

 

What are the computer system requirements to use Renfrew County Mapping?

You don’t need any advanced computer hardware ... just a machine with an Internet connection, and a web browser.

Spring is a good time to have your well water tested for bacteria. Melting snow and heavy rains may affect the safety of your drinking water. Testing your well water will alert you to any changes in the quality of your drinking water. The presence of bacteria in your water may act as an early warning sign of health risks associated with drinking contaminated well water. The Health Unit recommends that you test your well water at least three times a year.

Water wells can become polluted by flooding. Sometimes bad water has a nasty taste, odour, or cloudiness. Other times it tastes, smells and looks the same as clean water.

During a flood, dirty water may get directly into the water table through the well itself, through an old well or some other opening in the ground nearby. In this way it bypasses the natural purifying action of the earth.

Water wells may not be affected by floods. However, homeowners are urged to test all wells in the flooded area for bacteria.

Until tests show the water to be drinkable, all water for drinking should be boiled. Bringing water to a rolling boil for one minute will kill most germs. For more information follow this link to Renfrew County & District Health Unit website http://rcdhu.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Safe-Water-Boil-water-advisory.pdf

If you think or are told that your well water is unsafe because of chemicals, then boiling will make the problem worse. Instead, use another source of water such as store bought bottled water.

You can contact the Renfrew County and District Health Unit at 613-735-8654 or 1-800-267-1097 extension 555 for further information about how to disinfect a well.

Renfrew County and District Health Unit provides water testing services for residents who have private drinking water systems.

If you get your drinking water from a well, you should have it tested for bacteria at least three times per year. Testing times should be spread out over the year, for example during or just after a spring melt, in mid-summer and in the fall. In addition to regular testing, well water should be tested:

  • after any work to pumps or plumbing
  • if the well has not been used for several weeks
  • if there has been flooding in the area, or
  • if there has been a change in water colour or odour

Water testing is free. Sample bottles can be picked up at Health Unit offices. Sample bottles can also be picked up at all municipal offices in Renfrew County and District.

Instructions for taking the sample come with the water sample bottles. Follow the instructions carefully and write all of the information requested on the sample form.

Take the sample as close as possible to the time you will be dropping it off for testing. If you are not dropping off your sample right away, keep it in the fridge or a cooler.

DROPPING OFF YOUR WATER SAMPLE FOR TESTING

There are five locations throughout the County where you can drop off your water sample.  The closest one for Laurentian Valley residents is:

Office Location and Hours Drop-off Times
PEMBROKE – Health Unit Office

 

7 International Drive,  Pembroke
613-735-8654 Ext. 555

Monday to Friday (September to end of June): 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
July and August: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Monday – Thursday during regular office hours Friday before 8:45 a.m.

 

Courier picks up samples

Long weekends and statutory holidays – please check with the Health Unit for possible changes to the above schedule.

Interpreting your water test results

Public Health Inspectors are there to help you understand what your water results mean and how to fix any problems with your drinking water. Call the Health Unit at 613-735-8654 or 1-800-267-1097 extension 555.

Do not rely on the test results of only one water sample. The Health Unit recommends you take three samples taken one to three weeks apart to make sure your drinking water is safe to drink.

If you want to check for chemicals in your well water, you need to contact a lab or a water treatment company. Call the Health Unit for more information.

Additional information is also available at Public Health Ontario – Water Testing at: https://www.publichealthontario.ca/en/ServicesAndTools/LaboratoryServices/Pages/Water-testing.aspx

Knowing the risks and developing practical plans can help reduce fear and aid in recovery from an emergency situation.  Ensuring business continuity, protecting information and updating emergency plans are all crucial in assuring community preparedness.

All levels of government have an important role to play in emergency preparedness and response. But emergency preparedness starts with the individual.

Municipal Partnership in the Ottawa Valley Chooses to Walk Lightly on the Environment!

www.ovwrc.com

The Township of Laurentian Valley, in partnership with the Town of Petawawa, the City of Pembroke, The Township of North Algona - Wilberforce, and the Township of Bonnechere Valley (combined population of 40,000), is committed to the implementation of new diversion facilities to reduce the disposal of solid waste through landfilling and to provide a cost effective and environmentally friendly long-term waste management system.

The facilities, which include a Material Recovery Facility (MRF), a Central Composting Facility, and a Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Facility, is located at the (former) Alice & Fraser Landfill Site located in the Township of Laurentian Valley, approximately two hours north west of the National Capital.

The proposed waste management system is expected to increase the diversion rate in this combined urban/rural service area to approximately 65%, well above the 50% provincial objective.
The Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre and Landfill Site is located at 900 Woito Station Road.

HOURS of OPERATION:

The Township of Laurentian Valley is pleased to congratulate Rainbow Heritage Garden for being one of the 2014 Regional Award Winners of the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence, for their Root Cellar innovation.  “The Premier's Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence recognizes innovations that improve existing products, create jobs and drive economic growth.“  http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/premier_award/2014/events/g/rhg.htm

 

Provincial representatives attended at the Township Office on Monday December 22nd, 2014, to present Rainbow Heritage Garden with their award.  The innovative root cellar for their fruits and vegetables was inspired by European wine and cheese caves.  The 600-square-foot root cellar is carved into a nearby hillside, to 16 feet below grade.  The cellar takes advantage of cooler underground temperatures to keep their harvest fresh, along with a hundred cubic feet of ice that is harvested each February. The cellar can hold 20,000 pounds of produce. Completed in 2011, their investment has already paid for itself with spoilage rates at Rainbow Heritage Garden having dropped 90 per cent and also providing a draw to the Farm as part of “Root Cellar Days”.

 

Mayor Bennett says: “Council is very proud to have innovators such as Kylah and Zach continuing the agricultural tradition in Laurentian Valley in a sustainable way.  Congratulations and all the best for the continued success and growth of this exciting business.”

 

Rainbow Heritage Garden is located at 81 Stafford Second Line in the Township of Laurentian Valley and is operated by Kylah Dobson and Zach Loeks.  Rainbow Heritage Garden produces Certified Organic vegetables on a 7th generation off-grid Family Farm. They grow over 200 different varieties of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, and dry beans, including many heirlooms. Their produce is available through a CSA program, a Farmers Market Share, the Ottawa Valley Food Coop and on Saturdays at the Carp Farmer’s Market.  More information on Rainbow Heritage Garden can be found on their website at http://www.rainbowheritage.ca

 

Rainbow Heritage Garden was also previously awarded a Regional Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence in 2010 for their innovations used to irrigate their crops using a catchment pond and mobile solar generator, providing for a system that is reliable, environmentally responsible and cost-effective.

(formerly ATC Panels) that the medium density fibreboard plant has been successful in an application for funding under the the Industrial Electricity Incentive Stream 2 program.

 

This is a great step towards the proposed re-opening of the plant targetted for the Summer of 2014.  Great news for Laurentian Valley, the County of Renfrew and the surrounding area on the proposed return of this industry!  Hopefully more good news to come in the near future!

 

Statistics provided by Pembroke MDF and the County of Renfrew Economic Development Department indicate the following impacts.  The OPA contract award will yield savings of up to $24 million in a 6 year period reducing costs to $50 per MW from $100 per MW  This enables competitive operations for the mill.  The restart of the Plant would create 110 jobs plus another 40 when the moulding plant is reopened. The mill directly affects 19 local lumber mills, 58 timber harvesting businesses, 15 trucking companies and forest management companies with total employment of 1,895.  Indirectly, Pembroke MDF will represent another 1,500 employees.  Using a conservative multiplier the County estimates that an operating mill will affects over 6,280 workers and contribute indirectly to 1,069 provincial jobs.

<![CDATA[Economic Development]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/economic-development/http://www.lvtownship.ca/economic-development/Mon, 09 Jan 2017 7:37:20 -0700The Township of Laurentian Valley has experienced steady growth over the past years. The increase in residential development, growth of the commercial power centre located southeast of the City of Pembroke, the reopening of Pembroke MDF (medium density fibreboard plant in LV) and the reinvestment and growth in commercial development in the area along County Road 51 stretching westward from the boundary with the City of Pembroke, towards the Town of Petawawa and along Highway 148, have all helped to strengthen our dynamic community. 

Economic development in the Township of Laurentian Valley also benefits from the surrounding communities as opportunities are presented for complementary businesses and services in this already strong, healthy and vibrant municipality.

The proximity of Garrison Petawawa in the adjacent Town of Petawawa, with its growth in military and civilian personnel is one of the factors that enhance the potential for the Township of Laurentian Valley to attract new economic development and/or retain and grow existing business and industry. The Township of Laurentian Valley is also situated in close commuting distance to the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) facilities in Chalk River and Deep River (formerly known as AECL).  These facilities together with the Algonquin College Pembroke Waterfront Campus in the adjacent City of Pembroke, make the Township an attractive location for firms supporting advanced manufacturing and the nuclear industry to locate, as well as niche manufacturing and business supporting the creative economy.  Easy access through the Township to outside markets is available through the Highway 17 and Highway 41 corridors.  Laurentian Valley also is home to many persons employed at CNL and Garrison Petawawa due to its close proximity, providing further opportunities for residential growth.

In addition to the information found under the Economic Development section of this website, there are other sections of the Township website which provide some related information:

NOTICE OF ADOPTION
    OF AN OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT BY
    THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY 

TAKE NOTICE that Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed By-law No. 2016-06-032, thereby adopting Official Plan Amendment No.11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley on the 21st day of June, 2016, in accordance with Sections 17 and 21 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF OFFICIAL PLAN AMENDMENT  NO. 11 (OPA NO. 11) -  File No. O-2016-01
The purpose of proposed OPA  No. 11 to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley is to redesignate lands in order to allow one additional new lot occupied by an existing single detached dwelling to be created by severance. Three (3) existing commercial lots were previously created from the original holding and the policies of the Official Plan currently limit the maximum number of new lots by severance to 3 from the original holding as of January 18, 1979. The new lot to be created is known municipally as 1112 Pembroke Street East (Highway 148).  The existing commercial lots were subject to site plan control as part of their approval and are fully developed. The proposed severance is also to aid in the consolidation of lands for potential future development of the retained lands.  Please note, no specific development of the retained lands are proposed at this time.

Due to the site specific situation, a site specific exception to the Official Plan policy is proposed.  An associated application for consent to sever the lot will subsequently be filed with the County of Renfrew Land Division Committee.  The effect of this amendment is to redesignate lands from “Residential” to “Residential-Exception One” and from “Commercial” to “Commercial-Exception Three” on Schedule ‘A-3’ (Pembroke) to the Official Plan of the Township of Laurentian Valley and to establish a special provision to allow the severance of a fourth lot from the original holding.

LOCATION OF AMENDMENT 
The lands affected by OPA No. 11 (File No. O-2016-01), are known municipally as 1112 Pembroke Street East (Provincial Highway 148) and are located in Part of Lots 22 and 23, Concession 2, FAL, in the geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

A COPY of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and any additional related information is available for inspection during regular office hours at the Township Office or at the County of Renfrew Planning Department.

ANY PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY will be entitled to receive notice of the proposed decision of the Approval Authority which is the County of Renfrew, if a written request to be notified of the decision is made to the County of Renfrew, Department of Property and Development, Attention: Mr. Bruce Howarth, MCIP, RPP, Senior Planner, 9 International Drive, Pembroke, Ontario, K8A 6W5; Fax No. 613-735-2492; E-mail: bhowarth@countyofrenfrew.on.ca 

PLEASE NOTE that one of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efficient. Accordingly, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Township to such persons as the Township deems appropriate, including anyone requesting such information. Accordingly, in providing any such information, you shall be deemed to have consented to its use and disclosure as part of the planning process.

 

A FULL COPY OF THE NOTICE IS AVAILABLE FROM THE TOWNSHIP OFFICE OR BY DOWNLOAD FROM THIS WEBSITE. 

AS THE COUNTY OF RENFREW HAS NOW APPROVED OPA NO. 11, A COPY OF THEIR DECISION AND LETTER ADVISING OF NOW APPEALS IS ALSO ATTACHED.

<![CDATA[Local Recycling Program Changes to Increase Cost-Effectiveness]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/local-recycling-program-changes-to-increase-cost-effectiveness-4161.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/local-recycling-program-changes-to-increase-cost-effectiveness-4161.htmlTue, 19 Jul 2016 7:09:20 -0600Laurentian Valley, ON (July 7th, 2016) – At their June 29th meeting, the Ottawa Valley Waste Management Board approved, by resolution, the removal of Polystyrene (commonly referred to as Styrofoam™) and Film Plastic (i.e. grocery bags) from container recycling. Effective October 1st, for Municipalities serviced by the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre, this material must be placed in regular garbage, not recycling bins.

Ottawa Valley Waste Management Board Chairman, Laurentian Valley Mayor Steve Bennett, explained the importance of ensuring the Centre is utilizing tax payer’s dollars in the most effective way. “In reality, this material doesn’t save significant landfill space. It has limited end markets, causes significant maintenance issues at the Centre and the revenue received from the sale of Styrofoam™ and Film Plastic is far less than the cost to manage it. We could be investing that money and staff time into other waste diversion projects that would save much more landfill space.”

At their May meeting, the Board heard from Centre staff about the problems caused by processing material such as Styrofoam™ and Film Plastics. Mike Birett, Managing Director of the Continuous Improvement Fund, a Provincial organization mandated to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Ontario’s Blue Box Program, was invited to speak to the Board at their June 29th meeting and provide detailed information on the issues.

“It’s costly to divert problematic, low value materials such as Polystyrene and Film Plastic from the landfill. Those few programs that manage these materials tend to have higher operating costs and receive less Waste Diversion Ontario funding as a result.” Mr. Birett explained to the Board.

Waste Recovery Centre Communication Staff are in the process of developing messaging on this change which will be distributed via local media over the next three months, prior to the October 1st date.

“We will be working hard to clearly convey the message on why the difficult decision to no longer recycle Styrofoam™ and Film Plastic was made.” Explains Sue McCrae, Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre General Manager. “There were many factors that were considered by the Board. Even the fact that accepting plastic bags for recycling means you also get many non-recyclable plastic bags including sandwich bags, potting soil bags and plastic wrap. These have to be hand sorted by staff so other recyclables are not missed on our conveyor sorting line.”

PREPARE AN EMERGENCY KIT

A kit can easily be prepared by collecting certain items you already have around your house into one bag or container that is in a location that is easy to grab in case you need to leave your home in a hurry.  Many of the other items you can find inexpensively at a dollar store. Emergency kits make great gifts too so you can buy or find a special carry bag or plastic storage container and then head out to a dollar store or other store to find many of the items to fill the kit.

Remember your emergency survival kit should should be unique to your household and what your household needs are.  For example to you have a baby, a person with disabilities or special medical needs, do you have pets?  The Office of the Fire Marshall and Emergency Management Ontario (OFMEM) website contains useful tips and information on what to do to prepare for special situations such as persons with special needs or pets.   Also think about special items that would be important to you or provide comfort to your family members.  Items such as: a book; small toy; colouring book and crayons; a family photo or flash drive with family photos.

Your emergency survival kit should have everything you and your family would need to be safe and take care of yourselves for at least three days immediately following an emergency.

The following list is broken down into the essentials, items you may need to meet your family’s unique needs, and items to have ready in case you have to leave your home.

WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR SURVIVAL KIT

Essentials

  • Food (non-perishable and easy-to-prepare items, enough for 3 days) and a manual can opener
  • Bottled water (4 litres per person for each day)
  • Medication(s)
  • Flashlight
  • Radio (crank or battery-run)
  • Extra batteries
  • First-aid kit
  • Candles and matches/lighter
  • Hand sanitizer or moist towelettes
  • Important papers (identification, contact lists, copies of prescriptions, etc.)
  • Extra car keys and cash
  • Whistle (to attract attention, if needed)
  • Zip-lock bag (to keep things dry)
  • Garbage bags

Special Considerations

  • Items for babies and small children—diapers, formula, bottles, baby food, comfort items
  • Prescription medication
  • Medical supplies and equipment
  • Pet food and supplies
  • Any other items specific to your family’s needs

Extra Supplies for Evacuation

  • Clothes, shoes
  • Sleeping bags or blankets
  • Personal items (soap, toothpaste, shampoo, comb, other toiletries)
  • Playing cards, travel games, other activities for children
  • Flash drive of family photos

Other Tips

  • Pack the contents of your kit in an easy-to-carry bag(s) or a case on wheels.
  • Store your kit in a place that is easy to reach, and ensure that everyone in your family knows where it is.
  • Your kit does not have to be built overnight. Spread your shopping over a few weeks. Purchase a few items every time you go to the store.
  • Your water supply is meant to cover what you would drink as well as what you might need for food preparation, hygiene and dishwashing.
  • Check and refresh your kit twice a year—when the clocks shift to/from daylight savings time is a good time. Check all expiry dates and replace food and water with a fresh supply. Check batteries and replace as needed.
  • Keep your cell phone or mobile device fully charged.
  • Keep the gas tank in your vehicle full.

A weather radio is also a useful investment and there are many inexpensive types that do the job and can keep you aware when severe weather may occur or is about to happen.

You can download a helpful checklist from this website or contact or visit the Township office for more information.  You can also make use of the information on the Province of Ontario's website at http://www.emergencymanagementontario.ca/english/beprepared/beprepared.html and the Government of Canada website at http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/index-eng.aspx

 

MAKE A PLAN

Do you know what do in a tornado, flood or winter storm? Do you have everything you need during a major emergency?

Emergency Management Ontario has an easy online tool that will help you create an Emergency Preparedness Action Plan for your family or household.  Click here to make a plan.   Your completed plan will:

  • List the specific steps you need to take to get prepared
  • Provide tips on hazards that might affect your community
  • Include information related to special needs you may have (for example, information for people with disabilities and pet owners)

Reach out to neighbours, family and friends who may be vulnerable or unable to support themselves during an emergency.  Get to know your neighbours who might need help in an emergency and make sure that you or someone on your street is partnered with them to make sure they are okay in an emergency.

You can't predict an emergency, but you can prepare for one. Take action today!

<![CDATA[FRAUDSTERS CLAIMING TO BE CRA]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/fraudsters-claiming-to-be-cra-5445.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/fraudsters-claiming-to-be-cra-5445.htmlThu, 28 Apr 2016 9:05:45 -0600(PEMBROKE, ON) – “It is tax time again and fraudsters will use this opportunity to attempt to scam consumers and businesses out of their hard earned money.

Fraudsters impersonate the real Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) by telephone or by email. Fraudsters are either phishing for your identification or asking that outstanding taxes be paid by a money service business or by pre-paid debit/credit cards. There are two variations:

1. There is notification by phone or email from the "CRA" claiming there is a refund pending. In order for the recipient to receive the refund they must provide personal information.

2. Consumers and businesses receive a notification by phone or email that they owe "back taxes" as the result of an audit. The payment must be made immediately to avoid a fine or the recipient is told there is an outstanding warrant that can be avoided if the payment is made promptly. In many cases, individuals are told they will be deported or arrested if the taxes are not paid right away.

Protect yourself
•Do not take immediate action. Verify that what you are being told is the truth.
•Ask yourself why the CRA would be asking for personal information over the phone or email that they likely already have on file for you as a taxpayer.
•Contact the CRA to confirm that you in fact owe back taxes, or are entitled to a refund, before providing any personal or banking information.” (www.antifraudcentre.ca)

<![CDATA[Receiving Waste Collection Schedule from OVWRC]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/receiving-waste-collection-schedule-from-ovwrc-5921.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/community-news/receiving-waste-collection-schedule-from-ovwrc-5921.htmlTue, 01 Mar 2016 10:00:11 -0700February 29th, 2016 – The 2016/2017 Collection Schedules are being mailed out the first week of March to residents in Petawawa, Pembroke and Laurentian Valley. The annual calendar, distributed by the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre on behalf of the Municipalities, outlines collection days for waste, recycling and green carts as well as special collections such as leaf and yard waste and Spring and Fall bulky item.

The Collection Schedules begin April 1st. The layout and design of the schedules is the same as previous years and there are no program changes to note. Residents are encouraged to review the calendar to ensure they are meeting all the requirements when setting material at the curb or roadside for collection.

Proper set-out of materials ensures items are not left behind. Dave Unrau, Director of Public Works for the Town of Petawawa explains one example of this. “Residential recycling is accepted loose in the yellow bin, blue box or other reusable container. If recyclables are placed out in plastic bags they will not be collected. The contractor will leave a sticker behind explaining why material was left behind.”

Other requirements such as clearance around the green cart, proper distance from the road and how to properly sort recycling are all outlined in the collection schedule. “It’s a good idea for residents review this calendar every year – it’s a good refresher, sometimes we forget that milk cartons go in the yellow bin!” Comments Mr. Unrau.

While residents in Pembroke and Laurentian Valley will see no collection day changes there are minor changes to collection days in Petawawa. Residents can refer to the map on the schedule to verify their collection day.
Copies of the schedules will be delivered by March 11th. Copies are also available at Municipal Offices or the Centre’s website at www.ovwrc.com.

Materials placed on top of snowbanks can present a safety hazard for collection contractors working in Petawawa, Pembroke and Laurentian Valley and improper set-out can result in damage to containers by snowplows.
Here are the set-out requirements for recycling and garbage containers as well as green carts.

  • Items must be placed 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m) from curb or roadside (in driveway, not on sidewalk or snow bank). Material placed behind or on top of snowbanks may not be collected.
  • Green cart must have 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 m) clearance around it to allow for proper collection.
  • Green cart wheels must be facing away from the road. Lids must be closed.

“It’s not safe to have our snow plow operators maneuver around containers that are set-out too close to the road.” States Mark. Behm, Public Works Manager at the Township of Laurentian Valley. “Containers can be blown over or struck when the snow plow passes. The requirement to have material set-off the roadside 5 to 6 feet and in your driveway helps prevent containers from being hit.”
And setting material on top of snowbanks presents some safety hazards for the collection contractor explains Mr. Behm. “When material is placed on top of or in a snowbank it may not be collected. It’s a safety hazard for collection crews to retrieve items and lift them down off the snowbank. And items cannot be removed at all if they become frozen in the snow.”
Here are some more winter collection tips:

  • Clear out a place for your containers when you shovel snow.
  • If the storm is occurring in the overnight hours, wait until the morning to place your material curbside.
  • To help prevent material from freezing to your green cart:
    • Line the bottom of your green cart with crumpled up newspaper or pizza boxes.
    • Wrap food waste in newspaper or boxes (i.e. cereal box).
    • Strain excess liquid from soups and sauces and only place the solid pieces in the cart.
    • Layer wet organics (food waste, leaves) with dry organics (newspaper, pizza boxes).
  • Nets are available for purchase at your Municipal office or Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre. Nets cover the bins to prevent wind-blown litter.

For more information on your local recycling programs, please refer to your Municipality’s collection calendar or visit www.ovwrc.com.

The Municipality is upgrading its streetlight system to light-emitting diode (LED) streetlights because LEDs will use 63% less electricity than the current, outdated system. That decreased energy use is also expected to result in a 63% savings on electricity costs to power the streetlights. LED streetlights also reduce maintenance costs by 80% because they last four times longer than traditional streetlights.

Laurentian Valley’s Municipal Council authorized Local Authority Services (LAS) and its partner RealTerm Energy to assess the existing street light network, create an energy efficient and cost-effective lighting design, and then coordinate the purchase of the new LED lights from CREE Canada, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers. “The Township of Laurentian Valley is pleased to announce the LED Retrofit project with RealTerm Energy. This project brings many benefits for the Township and its residents including cost savings and an increase in safety for the community,” said Mayor Steve Bennett.

While consuming less energy, LEDs produce a clear, white light that improves night visibility and community safety. The beams of LEDs are more targeted than traditional streetlights to light only the streets and roadways, which helps reduce light pollution. LEDs will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Township by an estimated 10 metric tonnes per year, the equivalent of the carbon removed by 256 tree seedlings grown for ten years.

The Township of Laurentian Valley is one of more than 130 Ontario municipalities that have chosen RealTerm Energy and Local Authority Services (LAS) to upgrade to LED street lighting, including Laurentian Hills, Arnprior and Barrie.

Project Overview

Total number of fixtures:    240
Annual electricity cost savings:    63%
Annual electricity consumption reduction:    63%
Estimated annual greenhouse gas reduction:     10 metric tons – the equivalent of the carbon removed by 256 tree seedlings grown for ten years.


RealTerm Energy Corp., a Realterm Global company, is redefining the municipal street lighting market with intelligent LED lighting systems and services that deliver unmatched energy and maintenance savings. We create and foster long-term partnerships with forward-thinking private, public and government market leaders to deliver innovative and cost-effective lighting solutions.

Local Authority Services (LAS) is a preferred provider of competitively priced and sustainable co-operative business services for Ontario municipalities and the broader public sector. As the not-for-profit service arm of AMO, LAS helps its customers “save money, make money, and build capacity.”

Booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4- 8 when compared to seatbelt use alone.    Parents and caregivers must follow the manufacturer’s weight and height requirements for child car seats and booster seats. The law in Ontario allows a child to start using a seatbelt alone once any one of the following criteria is met:
•    child turns eight years old 
•    child weighs 36 kg (80 lbs.) 
•    child is 145 cm (4 feet 9 inches) tall

Location of Subject Lands

The County of Renfrew has received a revised application for plan of subdivision for Subdivision Application File No. 47T-14001.  The subdivision is proposed on an approximately 19 hectare (46.95 acre) parcel of land in Part of Lot 36, Concession 1, geographic Township of Stafford, in the Township of Laurentian Valley as shown on the Key Map.  The lands are bounded by TV Tower Road, Lloyd Drive, Matthews Avenue and lands in the City of Pembroke. As part of the revised application access is now proposed from TV Tower Road (County Road No. 36) and Pembroke Street West (County Road No. 51).  No access is proposed from Lloyd Drive.

Public Meeting

AT THE REQUEST OF THE COUNTY OF RENFREW (THE APPROVAL AUTHORITY), THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY WILL HOLD A PUBLIC MEETING TO INFORM THE PUBLIC OF THE SUBMISSION OF THE REVISED PROPOSED SUBDIVISION APPLICATION ON TUESDAY APRIL 21ST 2015 AT 5:30 P.M.

DESCRIPTION OF REVISED Application for Plan of Subdivision File No. 47-T-14001

The overall layout of the proposed subdivision has changed to keep Lloyd Drive as a cul-de-sac and have access connect to Pembroke Street West and TV Tower Road, and also to relocate the proposed location of the sewage pumping/lift station block.  To accommodate the new layout, the overall number of lots proposed has been reduced by 8 units and is now as follows: 151 lots for single detached residential lots, 46 freehold semi-detached dwellings on 23 lots and 108 freehold townhouse dwelling units on 17 blocks, for a total of 305 residential units proposed. The subdivision will include the creation of several interior roads, with access to the development proposed to be from TV Tower Road and Pembroke Street West, along with a parkland block and a stormwater management block. The lots are to be serviced by piped municipal sewer and water services.

When preparing your own plan remember diverse groups which may have diiferent needs, such as people with disabilities and special needs, seniors and pets.

 

More Information and Resources to Help You Be Prepared

There are many resources available to assist you in making sure that your family, friends, seniors, neighbours and pets are ready for an emergency.  Information is available from Emergency Management Ontario's Be Prepared website at http://ontario.ca/beprepared and from the Government of Canada's Get Prepared Website at http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/index-eng.aspx

There is no charge to drop items off. 

“Our electronics waste depot is open year round to residents and businesses.” States Sue McCrae, General Manager of the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre.   “Already in 2014 the Centre has received over 50 tonnes of electronic waste at our depot.  This is an important program when it comes to diverting waste from our landfill.”

The Centre accepts electronic waste year round at its’ drop-off depot at 1076 Woito Station Road, adjacent to the Centre’s main operations.   This program has been in place since 2009.   It was expanded in 2010 and included a ban on electronic waste being collected during the Spring and Fall Bulky Item Pick-Ups in Petawawa, Pembroke, and Laurentian Valley. 

“Since opportunities exist for residents to properly recycle electronic waste it is not currently collected curbside.”  States Mark Behm, Public Works Manager at the Township of Laurentian Valley.  “We still tend to see items like TV’s and computer monitors set-out for collection.  They can be brought to the OVWRC for proper disposal.”

To operate this program, the Waste Recovery Centre receives funding from Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES).  OES collects fees from brand owners, first importers into Ontario and assemblers of the products that are accepted as part of the electronic waste program. Funds are used to pay for program costs including collection, transportation, and processing.

Electronic Waste received at the Centre is shipped to licensed processing facilities for recycling. Mrs. McCrae states that “OES ensures facilities are processing material in an environmentally safe manner and that components which can be recycled are.”

For the operating hours of the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre please refer to their website.   Businesses dropping off 10 or more items at one time are asked to notify the Centre 24 hours in advance.  There is no fee to drop accepted electronic waste off at the Centre.   For more information and a detailed list of acceptable items please visit www.ovwrc.com

Plan of Subdivision County of Renfrew File No. 47-T-13003

The proposed residential plan of subdivision consists of 33 single detached dwellings, 8 semi-detached dwellings on 4 blocks and 16 townhouse dwellings on 1 block. The subdivision will include the extension of Third Avenue to a new cul-de-sac; the extension of Donald Street to Third Avenue and the extension of Leach Avenue from Allen Street to Donald Street. Approximately 0.48 acres of land will be also dedicated for parkland, located at the end of the new cul-de-sac. The lots are to be serviced by both piped municipal water and sewer services.

Purpose and Effect of Zoning By-law Amendment Z-2013-05

The purpose of the proposed amendment to Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 08-04-391 of the Township of Laurentian Valley is to rezone the subject lands to recognize the proposed subdivision layout and permit the proposed mixed use residential subdivision comprised of 33 lots for single detached dwellings, 4 blocks containing 8 semi-detached dwelling units and 1 block containing 16 townhouse dwelling units for a total of fifty-seven (57) residential units.

The effect of the proposed amendment is summarized as follows:

Item 1: Lots 1 to 33 inclusive to be rezoned from Residential One-holding (R1-h) to Residential One-Exception Thirty-holding (R1-E30-h) which would permit single detached dwellings and establish special provisions for a minimum lot area of 390m²; a minimum lot frontage of 15 metres; a minimum interior side yard width 1.5 metres; and an exception from Section 3.27(a) (iii) separation distance from lands zoned GM.

But what happens in the event of a major emergency? Suddenly these tools can become vital in helping you and your family deal get in touch and stay informed. So here are some tips on the use of technology in an emergency:

If possible, use non-voice channels like text messaging, email or social media. These use less bandwidth than voice communications and may work even when phone service does not.

If you must use a phone, keep your conversation brief and convey only vital information to emergency personnel and/or family. This will also conserve your phone’s battery.

Unable to complete a call? Wait 10 seconds before redialing to help reduce network congestion. Remember, cordless phones rely on electricity and will not work during a power outage. If you have a landline, make sure to keep at least one corded phone in your home.

Keep extra batteries or a charger for your mobile device in your emergency kit. Consider getting a solar-powered, crank, or vehicle phone charger. If you do not have a cell phone, keep a prepaid phone card in your emergency kit.
Keep your contacts up to date on your phone, email and other channels. This will make it easier to reach important contacts, such as friends, family, neighbours, child’s school, or insurance agent.  If you have a smartphone, save your safe meeting location(s) on its mapping application.  Conserve your smartphone’s battery by reducing the screen’s brightness, placing your phone in airplane mode, and closing apps you are not using.   You never know how long a power outage will last!

Remember, in an emergency or to save a life, call 9-1-1 for help. You cannot currently text 9-1-1. If you are not experiencing an emergency, do not call 9-1-1. If your area offers 3-1-1 service or another information system, call that number for non-emergencies.

<![CDATA[Tips to help stop the spread of influenza virus]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/tips-to-help-stop-the-spread-of-the-influenza-virus/tips-to-help-stop-the-spread-of-influenza-virus-6078.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/emergency-management/tips-to-help-stop-the-spread-of-the-influenza-virus/tips-to-help-stop-the-spread-of-influenza-virus-6078.htmlWed, 23 Apr 2014 9:32:17 -0600

Here are some tips about things that you can do to help stop the spread of the influenza virus:

Infection control measures
Infection control measures are actions that can help prevent the spread of the influenza virus in the workplace. These measures include:

Stay home if you are ill. Most adults infected with influenza can transmit the virus from 24 hours before and up to 5 days after they begin to experience symptoms. For some adults and for young children, this period may last for 7 or more days. Some experts believe that people are most infectious in the first 3 days that they are infected with influenza. However there are no clear data on how long a person should wait before returning to work or school to minimize the risk of infecting others. The best advice at this time is that adults should not return to their usual activities for at least 5 days after they begin to experience influenza symptoms or when they feel well enough to return to their duties, whichever is longer. It should be made clear that employees must not come into work when they have influenza-like symptoms.

Wash your hands. Hand washing is one of the most important preventive measures during a pandemic. All organizations should promote hand washing and ensure that adequate supplies of hand soap and paper towels are available. Post signs in conspicuous locations (washrooms, staff kitchen, coffee stations, etc.) to remind staff to wash their hands. People must not share towels, eating utensils, or drinks with anyone else.

Use hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers should be used when hand washing stations are not available. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60% to 90% alcohol (isopropanol or ethanol).

Practice respiratory etiquette. Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes, and dispose of single-use tissues after use. These practices are
essential to preventing the spread of influenza.

Vaccine administration and distribution. In the event of an influenza pandemic, it will take approximately four to six months to produce a suitable vaccine. Initially, there will not be enough vaccine for everyone. The federal and provincial governments have identified “priority groups” to receive the vaccine. The groups are:
▪ health care workers;
▪ essential service workers;
▪ persons at high risk of serious illness;
▪ healthy adults;
▪ healthy children.
The priority groups may change depending on the nature of the influenza pandemic. RCDHU is working with hospitals and other organizations to ensure that the priority groups 1 to 3 are enumerated for vaccine. When enough vaccine becomes available, RCDHU will organize mass vaccination clinics to vaccinate the general public. RCDHU will make public announcements about the time and location of these clinics. Issues to consider include communicating with employees and ensuring the safe and accurate distribution of vaccines and/or medications.

Antiviral medication administration and distribution. The Province of Ontario has a limited stockpile of Oseltamivir (Tamiflu). Initially antiviral medication such as Tamiflu will most likely be used to treat those with severe influenza illness during a pandemic (i.e., those sick enough to require hospital care). Although, the effectiveness of antiviral medications against a novel pandemic virus is unknown it is likely that they will reduce the severity of influenza illness caused by a pandemic. If providing antiviral medication to prevent illness in contacts of cases at the early stage of a pandemic fails to prevent the viruses' introduction into Renfrew County & District, as is likely, the MOHLTC priority system for vaccine distribution will be used. This means certain populations will be given antiviral medications to prevent illness during the first pandemic wave before the vaccine is available.

Cleaning workplaces. The influenza virus can live up to two days on hard surfaces. Surfaces such as bathroom counters and objects such as door knobs that have been touched by a person with known or suspected influenza should be cleaned every day with regular household cleansers or by following current infection control protocols for cleaning and disinfecting. Ensure that adequate supplies for hand washing and cleaning are available in the workplace and that waste is disposed of promptly.

Social distancing in the workplace. During an influenza pandemic, strategies that prevent employees being in close proximity to one another may help to decrease transmission in the workplace. These strategies may include:

  • working from home or arranging to work flex hours to avoid rush-hour crowding on public transit;
  • minimizing contact with others by keeping one’s office door closed; using stairs instead of crowded elevators; canceling non-essential face-to-face meetings and using teleconferencing, video conferencing, e-mails, and faxes instead; staying three feet (one meter) away from others when a meeting is necessary;
  • avoiding shaking hands, hugging, or kissing people;
  • bringing lunch and eating at one’s desk or away from others;
  • if you feel unwell, stay home, rest, and drink plenty of fluids.

Screen employees for symptoms. Screening employees for symptoms of influenza may be a useful strategy to keep workplaces healthy. RCDHU recommends that individuals with influenza-like symptoms avoid coming to work, school, or public gatherings until they are recovered. Strategies also need to be in place to assess staff fitness to work or return to work.”

<![CDATA[Mailboxes]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/public-works/roads/mailboxes-3557.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/public-works/roads/mailboxes-3557.htmlFri, 14 Mar 2014 9:42:00 -0600Make sure your mailbox can withstand heavy snow thrown by passing plow trucks this winter. Autumn is a good time for residents to make sure their rural mailboxes are in good shape for the winter season. Common repairs include replacing loose hinges on a mailbox door, remounting a mailbox post that may have become loose or rotten, and replacing or adding house numbers.

Residents installing new mailboxes or replacing old ones must use Canada Post approved traditional or contemporary mailboxes. Generally, the bottom of a mailbox should be at a vertical height of between 40 and 42 inches from the road surface and placed so carriers can safely and conveniently serve them without leaving their vehicles. Repairing your mailbox and making sure the post is securely set in the ground, will help it withstand the force of the heavy snow coming off the snow plows. Below is a link to Canada Posts guidelines for rural mailboxes:

http://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/assets/pdf/personal/rmb_guidelines_e.pdf

Damage to mailboxes resulting from snow plowing will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Mailboxes that are damaged by actual physical contact with township equipment will be repaired at the township expense, but only if they were properly located and installed. The mailbox owner is responsible for repair or replacement of the mailbox if the mailbox was damaged by the pressure of the plowed snow and there was no physical contact with the plow equipment.

As you inspect your mailbox it is also a good time to install reflectors that make your mailbox easier to see during storms or during dark hours. It’s a good idea to also make sure your house number is visible on your mailbox as this will assist mail carriers and emergency crews.

It is very uncommon that a mailbox is directly contacted with snow removal equipment. The average number of mailboxes that receive direct contact from snow removal equipment during a snow storm is less than one percent.

•    Report their annual energy use and GHG emissions to the Ministry of Energy as of July 1, 2013
•    Develop five-year energy conservation and demand management (CDM) plans by July 1, 2014

Energy reporting and conservation planning will help the Township:
•    manage electricity use and costs;
•    identify best practices and energy-saving opportunities;
•    evaluate results by comparing to similar facilities across the province;
•    assist in setting goals by providing a benchmark; and
•    measure improvement over time

The Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan will outline:
•    conservation goals and objectives;
•    proposed conservation measures;
•    estimated costs and benefits; and
•    any renewable energy installations

Accessible Customer Service Policies and Procedures

APPROVED JANUARY 19TH, 2010

Policy:

The Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley is committed to eliminating barriers and improving accessibility in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities.

These assistive devices may include but are not limited to: support persons, service animals, communication aids, cognition aids, mobility aids and medical aids.    

Applicability:

The Accessible Customer Service Policy and Procedures apply to members of Council, all Municipal employees as well as volunteers, agents and/or contractors who represent the Corporation of Laurentian Valley Township in any manner. 

Definitions:

Assistive Device is a technical aid, communication device, or medical aid modified or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional abilities of people with disabilities.

Barrier, as defined by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, means anything that prevents a person with a disability from fully participating in all aspects of society because of his or her disability, including a physical barrier, an architectural barrier an information or communications barrier, a technological barrier, a policy or practice.

Customer is a person who buys, receives, or uses goods or services.

Disability, as defined by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 and the Ontario Human Rights Code, is:

  • any degree of physical disability, infirmity, malformation or disfigurement that is caused by bodily injury, birth defect or illness and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, includes diabetes mellitus, epilepsy, a brain injury, any degree of paralysis, amputation, lack of physical co-ordination, blindness, or visual impediment, deafness or hearing impediment, muteness or speech impediment, or physical reliance on a guide dog or other animal or on a wheelchair or other remedial appliance or device,

Support Person, as defined in Ontario Regulation 429/07, a support person means, in relation to a person with a disability, another person who accompanies him or her in order to help with communication, mobility, personal care or medical needs or with access to goods or services.

Procedures:

Assistive Devices
The use of assistive devices by persons with disabilities to obtain, use or benefit from the Township of Laurentian Valleys goods or services is recognized unless otherwise prohibited due to health and safety or privacy issues. 

Support Persons
Persons with disabilities are permitted to be accompanied by their support person in areas/premises that are open to the public, when accessing goods or services provided by the Township of Laurentian Valley. If a person with a disability is accompanied by a support person, the provider of goods or services shall ensure that both persons are permitted to enter the premises together and that the person with a disability is not prevented from having access to the support person while on the premises.

Where admission fees for the support person are applicable, the Municipality will waive collection of admission fees for the support person

The Township of Laurentian Valley may deem it necessary to require a support person for a person with a disability in order to protect the health and safety of that person or of others on the premises. This will only occur after consultation with the person with a disability and when it is the only means to allow the person with a disability to access the Township of Laurentian Valleys goods or services.

Service Animals
Persons with disabilities are permitted to be accompanied by their service animal and keep that animal with them in areas/premises that are open to the public, when accessing goods and services provided by the Township of Laurentian Valley, unless superseded by other legislation (health & safety or privacy).

In the event that a service animal is otherwise prohibited by law from the premises, the Township of Laurentian Valley will ensure that other measures are available to enable the person with a disability to obtain, use or benefit from Laurentian Valleys goods and services.

Service Disruptions
In the event of a planned service disruption to facilities, services or systems that are relied upon by persons with disabilities to access the Township of Laurentian Valleys goods or services, notice of the disruption shall be provided in advance.

Notice will include information about the reason for the disruption, its anticipated duration and a description of alternate facilities, services or systems that may be available. 

Notice may be given by posting the information in a conspicuous place on premises owned or operated by the provider of goods or services, or posted on the Municipal web site or by such other method as is reasonable under the circumstances. In the event of an unexpected disruption, notice will be provided as soon as possible.

Garbage and Recyclable materials are collected on a biweekly basis. One week, blue box (paper) and green cart (food waste) are collected, the alternate week the yellow Triple “R” container (glass, plastic, metal, Styrofoam, etc.) and regular garbage are collected.

Each residential unit is permitted to place curbside, a maximum of three (3) garbage bags or garbage cans with a maximum weight of any item not exceeding 50 lbs. (23 kg).

Please make sure you are placing the correct materials in the correct container on the proper collection day.  This will avoid a situation where your waste or recycling is not picked up by the Township Contractor.  Container Recycling is to be placed loose in the yellow Triple "R" container or other open top containers such as laundry baskets or Rubbermaid totes. Container Recycling is not acceptable in bags. This includes large clear/blue bags and small bags within Triple “R” container.

Placing a layer of newspaper on the grate in the bottom of the cart or using a paper leaf and yard waste bag may assist in keeping the cart cleaner. Wrapping food waste in newspaper during winter months also aids in preventing materials from freezing in the cart. Plastics of any kind including compostable and biodegradable plastics are not acceptable in the green cart.

Special Bulky Item Garbage Collection is held in the Spring and Fall. Please see the Collection Calendar for dates and restrictions.

Leaf and Yard Waste Special Collection is held on various dates throughout the year. Please view the Collection Calendar for dates and restrictions.

Placement for Collection Containers – Residents are reminded to place garbage, recycling and green cart collection items in the driveway five (5) feet back from the curb line or edge of pavement. This is especially important during the winter to allow for snow removal operations.

Collection containers must be placed curbside before 5:00 a.m. on the day of collection. They can also be placed out the night before, after 7:00 p.m.

An application for licence under the Aggregate Resources Act to operate a gravel pit on the property is also being filed with the Ministry of Natural Resources. Concurrent amendments to the Comprehensive Zoning By-law are being processed by the Township which also affect the subject property, including portions already designated Mineral Aggregate Resource where an amendment to the Zoning By-law is also required, as described in more detail in Item 2. below. It should be noted that there are additional lands nearby that are owned by the same property owner, where the same licensee is also applying for a license for a gravel pit in a concurrent application for zoning by-law amendment as described in Item 3 below.

PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2012-12)
The purpose of the proposed amendments to Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 08-04-391, are to rezone lands to permit their use for aggregate extraction, in association with a corresponding application for Aggregate Licence from the Ministry of Natural Resources and an amendment to the Official Plan as described above.

The exception will also allow for the use of material to be extracted from within the area adjacent to Derions Road, in order to allow for the material to be used for potential works related to Derions Road. The holding symbol would remain in place until such time as the Township is notified by the Ministry of Natural Resources that the Aggregate Licence has been approved by MNR staff and any other conditions for removal of the holding symbol as identified by resolution of Council have been met.

LOCATION OF LANDS AFFECTED BY ITEMS 1 AND 2

"Today's children are being weaned off video games and quickly moved to computers. Society has high hopes for this technically literate generation, but the proliferation of microcomputers and computer literacy also means that more and more assets will be stored on computer systems and the community of potential computer criminals will increase astronomically." Dr. Willis Ware, Rand Corporation, Santa Monica, CA.

With the ever increasing development of computer technology and the increasing number of people who are computer literate, it is much more likely that our children will be victimized or exploited in a computer environment.

The "Information Super Highway", which is made up of commercial on-line services such as Prodigy, America Online, CompuServe, and the Internet allow millions of people around the world to communicate anonymously in a virtually uncontrolled electronic world. If your child has a home computer, uses a computer at school, or access to a friend's computer (particularly if they have connected the computer to a phone line via a modem), please take the time to review this guide.

Just as we tell our children not to talk to strangers and watch and direct where they go and whom they meet in the "real world", we need to be aware of the dangers in the electronic world and exercise these same cautions. Parents have unknowingly allowed their children to invite criminals into their homes via the computer. This has resulted in the child becoming involved in criminal activities and all too often victimized by persons who would never have been allowed in the home by the parents.

Tips for Safe Computing

  • Advise your children to observe the following safety rules whenever they are on-line. Remind them that no matter how safe or friendly an on-line service seems (and this includes the major on-line services), there is always a potential for danger.
     
  • Never give out any personal information about themselves - particularly real names, addresses, phone numbers, financial information, etc., to anyone that they meet on-line.
     
  • (The above is not meant to preclude giving your name, phone, address, and credit card number to on-line services that often require them to open an account. You may also find you can order services and products via on-line services and we are not discouraging this. Making purchases on-line with a credit card is probably just as safe as it is in person at a store. What we are concerned about is giving personal and credit information out to people you meet in chat rooms or e-mail. It is the same as using a telephone. When you call a business and order products by phone, you know who you are calling and can feel reasonably secure in giving them your credit card number. When they originate the call, you have no way of knowing if you are talking to a legitimate business or a crook.)
     
  • Do not fill in the "Member Profile" section available when using on-line services where you fill in your name, address, age, school, sex, interests, etc. This allows any on-line user access to personal information. If you want to put anything in here, use your handle (screen name) and interests. Skip the address and other personal information.
     
  • Be aware of undesirable chat rooms and bulletin boards. Use the "parental discretion" options where necessary to block these areas.
     
  • Don't respond to anyone who leaves you obnoxious, sexual, or menacing e-mail. You should not become involved in public "flame" sessions ("flame" means a war of words.) You have no idea who you are dealing with and what access an individual may have to your personal or on-line account information. Many services provide a "kill" file where they can automatically block messages from these persons.
     
  • Report all electronic harassment and/or abuse. As parents, you should notify the ISP (Internet Service Provider) or BBS (Bulletin Board System) SYSOP (system operator) of the problem. If the SYSOP does not give you satisfaction in stopping this abuse, notify the police.
     
  • Never set up face-to-face meetings with anyone you have met on-line. If anyone you meet on-line wants to meet you - tell your parents.

Warning Signs of Possible Computer Crime Problems

(Note: These are warning signs only and are meant as warnings of possible problems, not evidence of a problem.)

  • Computer addiction. Withdraws from friends, family, "lives on the computer," and may lose interest in social activities.
     
  • Use of a new unusual vocabulary, heavy with computer terms, satanic phrases, sexual reference or sudden interest in related hard rock or satanic oriented posters, music, etc. Look for related doodling or writing using of words such as: Hacking, Phreaking, or any words with "ph" replacing 'f."
     
  • Lack of interest in self and appearance, grooming and hygiene, or indications of lack of sleep, sudden drop in school grades, and unauthorized absences from classes.
     
  • The computer and modem are running late at night, even when unattended.
     
  • Computer files ending in GIF, JPG, BMP, TIF, PCX, DL, GL, FLI, MPG, AVI, MOV. These are picture or graphic files and parents should know what they illustrate. Image files may be pictures of a sexual nature and can be of very high quality, moving pictures, and even include sound.
     
  • Names on communication programs that seem satanic, pornographic, rude, or vulgar in nature.
     
  • An obsession with fantasy adventure games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Trade Wars.
     
  • Use of the computer to scan or run telephone or credit card numbers.

What You Can Do to Protect Your Children

  • Learn about computers. Take a course at your local city college or tech school so you will have at least an understanding about what your children are doing.
     
  • Talk to your kids about their use of the computer and the dangers on-line. You are already talking about school, sex, drugs, strangers, gangs, and violence. Computers can involve all these problems and they can happen in your home without your knowledge.
     
  • Be involved with your kids in using the computer. This is a great opportunity to spend time with your child. It also gives you the opportunity to see what they like to do. If they like games, try playing the games with them. If they do their homework, read the paper while they work. If they use a modem to call on-line systems, ask questions about what your child is doing and what they are looking for.
     
  • Keep the computer in a "common" area of your home. Don't use the computer as a baby-sitter. Keep the computer in a family room or den. This allows you to monitor on-line activity. In the majority of cases investigated where children were involved in computer crimes, or were the victim of abuse by people met on-line, the computer was found in the child's room. Often the child could lock the door prohibiting others in the household from observing their activity.
     
  • Control all modem activity. Monitor the times and the numbers dialed.
     
  • Closely monitor your long distance telephone bill for unexplained calls. With on-line services and bulletin boards all over the world, it is easy to start calling long distance for special systems.
     
  • Check the screen of an unattended computer. If the computer is showing a series of changing numbers, the computer may be running a hacking program trying to identify calling card "pin" numbers, long distance access numbers, or be attempting to validate credit card numbers.
     
  • Make sure that access to the Internet at your children's school is monitored by adults.
     
  • Know your children's friends and their parents. If your child's friend has Internet access at home, talk to the parents about the rules they have established. Find out if the children are monitored while they are on-line.
     
  • Make sure that your child's school has an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP.) This policy should include a list of acceptable and unacceptable activities or resources, information on "netiquette" (etiquette on the Internet), consequences for violations, and a place for you and your child to sign. Your family can design its own AUP for the home computer.

Special Note: Don't make the mistake of thinking that the activities mentioned above are too "high tech" for your own child. Most parents are unaware of how much their children really know when it comes to the computer.

  • Never let strangers know you live alone, or that you will be away.
     
  • Never open your door to strangers, make sure you know who they are before opening the door. If your door does not have a window, instal a wide angle viewer. Require that they show identification, honest repair, service workers and even Police Officers have ID.
     
  • Install good, deadbolt locks on all exterior doors, lock all windows when not in use. Insert a fitted piece of metal or wood into the patio door track for extra security.
     
  • Keep garages and sheds locked at all times, don't leave out tools that could help burglars.
     
  • Don't leave your housekeys in an obvious place outside the home, evryone knows to check under the mat!

  • If you notice someone hanging around your home, alert the police.
     
  • When out in your car 

    • Keep your locks and windows in good condition, lock the doors while you are driving.
       
    • Keep your housekeys on a separate chain, only give the car keys to a parking attendant.

    <![CDATA[Dialing 911]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/residents/community-policing-committee/tips-and-information/dialing-911-6037.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/residents/community-policing-committee/tips-and-information/dialing-911-6037.htmlWed, 11 Jul 2012 8:13:45 -0600 9-1-1....What is YOUR Emergency?

    Police have found that the vast majority of 9-1-1 calls they receive are NOT emergent in nature. Misuse of the 9-1-1 system consumes police resources needlessly, and delays response to real emergencies. Tying up a 9-1-1 line deliberately when no emergency exists may result in criminal charges. Someone else's life may depend on those precious moments that are lost when emergency resources are wasted on prank calls or non-emergency calls.

    When should I call 9-1-1?

    It is appropriate to call 9-1-1 when someone's health, immediate safety or property is being threatened. Examples of 9-1-1 emergencies include: a crime in progress, a fire or any life-threatening medical emergency. The 9-1-1 operator will ask you if you require Police, Fire or Ambulance. Identify the service or services you need, and STAY ON THE LINE. You will be transferred immediately to the proper agency for your area, and the call-taker will ask you questions to determine your needs, confirm your location and contact information, and then dispatch help.

    Callers sometimes dial 9-1-1 incorrectly to report incidents that do require police attention, but are not life-threatening emergencies or crimes in progress. Non-injury motor vehicle accidents, thefts, mischief, and other crimes that are reported after the fact, should be reported on regular police lines, which can be programmed into your phone. Locally, you can call the the Ontario Provincial Police for incidents that have occurred in Laurentian Valley at 1-888-310-1122 . For information and administration, call the Upper Ottawa Valley O.P.P. office at 613-735-0188 .

    What if I dial 9-1-1 by accident?

    If you accidentally phone 9-1-1, DO NOT HANG UP. Stay on the line to alert the call-taker that the call was unintentional. Police may still respond to investigate the call and confirm the reason, but abandoned calls with no answer on ring-back or hang-ups on ring-back raise suspicion that the caller may be in a real emergency, and are treated with more urgency.

    Unintentional 9-1-1 calls often occur when wireless phones are being used. 9-1-1 should NOT be pre-programmed into your phone, because an accidental depression of one key can initiate a false 9-1-1 call. Random dialing can also occur when the wireless phone's batteries are low, causing accidental misdials.

    How do I teach my children about 9-1-1?

    Children who dial 9-1-1 for fun or curiosity are the cause of a large number of unfounded 9-1-1 calls. Ensure that your phones are out of the reach of toddlers. Talk to your children about the proper use of 9-1-1 for real emergencies. Explain the serious repercussions that can result when prank 9-1-1 calls cause police resources to be wasted, while someone's life or property could be at risk elsewhere.

    No work has been undertaken to resolve the accessibility deficiencies. Council will have to make a decision on whether the Municipality will upgrade the building or dispose of this property. It is an older structure that will require extensive renovations and possibly an addition to make it accessible. Then there is the issue of the work required to bring the well and water system into compliance with the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act.

    Micksburg Seniors Center

    No work has been undertaken to resolve the accessibility deficiencies. The Micksburg Seniors Club have made arrangements with Micksburg Athletic for the use of their facility as of October 2008. Council will have to make a decision on whether the Municipality will upgrade the building or dispose of this property. It is an older structure that will require extensive renovations and possibly an addition to make it accessible.

    Barriers to be addressed in 2009

    Information Services

    The Municipality will consult with the visually impaired when format changes to the web site, tax bills and notices are contemplated.

    By-laws

    Staff will be instructed to include the other Municipal properties and Recreational complexes in any tenders for parking lot painting and signing in 2009. Estimates will be sought to design and renovate the Stafford Works Garage to accommodate the disabled, for Councils decision.

    The recreation facilities are managed by arms length committees. The Municipality has advised them of their obligations under the Ontario Disabilities Act and the deficiencies found during the audit. The recreation associations will be requested to file updates on their progress to making the facilities accessible in their yearly reports to Council.

    Review and Monitoring

    Council is committed to following through with this plan. This plan will be updated annually to allow Council, staff and the public to monitor the progress the Municipality is making to remove all barriers under the Ontarians With Disabilities Act.

    Communication

    This report will be made available on the Municipal web site as well as the Municipal Office. The report will also be circulated to the local groups that deal with the disabled for their review and comments.

    Accessibility Policies

    The Municipality has a committee organized to draft the required Accessibility Standards to comply with Ontario Regulation 429/07. This policy should be completed before the January 1, 2010 deadline imposed by the Act.

    The Ontario Disability Act (Bill 125) requires that Municipalities prepare an accessibility plan annually and consult with persons with disabilities. The accessibility plan shall address the identification, prevention and removal of barriers to persons with disabilities. This is to be accomplished through the by-laws, policies, programs, practices and services of the Municipality.

    This is the third accessibility plan completed by the Municipality. This report provides a baseline of the accessibility measures taken in the past, what barriers where removed since 2005 and identifies what measures need to be addressed in 2008 and the future. The inspections and report were conducted by municipal staff.

    Laurentian Valley Township Demographics

    Laurentian Valley Township was formed by the amalgamation of the former Townships of Stafford-Pembroke and Alice & Fraser on January 1, 2000. The Municipality boasts a population of 9,265 residents, with 3,769 households. The Township of Laurentian Valley surrounds the City of Pembroke and is south of the Town of Petawawa.

    Land uses range from rural residential and farming properties on private water and on-site sewage disposal systems to suburban and residential and highway commercial on municipal water and sewer. There are several blocks of industrial properties in the municipality and regionally significant mineral aggregate resources. The Township has approximately 20 kilometres of Ottawa River frontage.

    The Municipality has seven significant properties with structures; the Municipal Office, Stafford Works Garage, Laurentian Valley Fire Hall, Micksburg Seniors Center and three Recreational complexes.

    Council Commitment to Accessibility Planning

    The Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley is committed to the continuous improvement of access to all municipally owned facilities, premises and services for all those with disabilities.

    Council has instructed the Chief Administrative Officer to conduct the audits and prepare the accessibility plan to meet these commitments.

    Baseline Audit

    Information Services

    The Municipal web site is mostly disabled accessible. It is in a text only format which allows the visually impaired to use web reading software to navigate the site and read the graphics. There is however an increasing use of adobe formatted documents which is more convenient for staff but not as accessible.

    By-laws

    The Municipality passed a Disabled Parking By-law No 03-03-167 in March 2003. Shortform wording has been approved by the Crown. The set fine is $300.00 as required by the province. Disabled parking and access are considered when planning new developments.

    The Building Department has enforced Section 3.8 (formerly 3.7 the accessibility portion) since its introduction into the Ontario Building Code.

    Municipal Buildings

    On September 9, 2003 staff completed an initial Part 3.8 Building Code audit of the Municipally owned buildings and a follow up inspections were completed on August 19, 2004 and August 21, 2007. The audits were conducted to assess the existing compliance of the Municipal buildings and properties to the standards. Although the newer buildings comply with the existing standards, there were noted improvements that could be made. Numerous barriers were identified in the older facilities which will require remedial work to remove. These barriers will be discussed further in this document under Barriers Identified.

    Transportation & Roads

    The Municipality now provides limited mass transit in the Stafford built up area. There are very few sidewalks in the Municipality. There are a couple of areas in the Municipality that are signed to caution traffic for local disabled persons. This signing has been done on a request basis in the past.

    The Municipality does subsidize the Friends of the Disabled on their expense of operating Pembroke Handi-bus.

    Barriers Identified

    Municipal staff conducted a follow up audit of Municipal properties and buildings on August 21, 2007. The following chart gives a list of deficiencies identified and the strategy for their removal.

Then there is the issue of the work required to bring the well and water system into compliance with the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act. It may be cost prohibitive to bring this facility into compliance for the limited number of residents who use this facility.

    Barriers to be addressed in 2008

    Information Services

    The Municipality will consult with the visually impaired when format changes to the web site, tax bills and notices are contemplated.

    By-laws

    The Municipality will enure that the new Zoning by-law complies with the Ontario Disabilities Act in so far as the Planning Act permits. Council will consider the Ontario Disability Act when reviewing new development proposals.

    Municipal Buildings

    Staff will be instructed to include the other Municipal properties and Recreational complexes in any tenders for parking lot painting and signing in 2008. Estimates will be sought to design and renovate the Stafford Works Garage and the Micksburg Seniors Center to accommodate the disabled, so Council can make decisions on the fate of these properties.

    The recreation facilities are managed by arms length committees. The Municipality has advised them of their obligations under the Ontario Disabilities Act and the deficiencies found during the audit. The recreation associations will be requested to file updates on their progress to making the facilities accessible in their yearly reports to Council.

    The Ontario Ministry of the Environment and the Ontario Ministry of Health recommend that private water wells be tested three times a year. The water should be tested for bacteria, including total coliforms and E.coli. The Renfrew County and District Health Unit provides these tests for free.

    www.rcdhu.com The Renfrew County and District Health Unit website, for more detailed information on sampling, testing and what to do if your well water is contaminated

    The following is the recommended routine sampling procedure for coliforms and E.coli:

    • Use the sampling bottle provided by the agency doing your testing.
    • Select a non-swivel tap, remove any attachments that may be on the tap. Run hot water for two or three minutes. Then run the cold water for at least 5 minutes.
    • Label the bottle and complete the forms that came with the bottle.
    • Remove the bottle cap, do not touch the bottle lip, the inside of the lid or inside the bottle. Do not set the lid down, hold it in your fingers with the open end facing down. Do not rinse the bottle, the material in the bottle is a preservative. (the key is to get a sample of the water, not the bacteria that may be on your hand, the sink or the counter.)
    • Fill the sample bottle to the fill line directly from the tap, do not adjust the flow.
    • Replace the cap on the bottle.
    • Refridgerate the sample until transporting it to the health unit or the laboratory. This must be done within 24 hours of taking the sample.

Taking care of your well is a three-step process.

    1. Protect your well water at the ground surface by avoiding, eliminating or reducing contaminants.
    2. Inspect your well regularly and keep your well in good running order.
    3. Test your well water regularly and respond to contamination problems.

    Protection

    The closest threat to your well is usually in your own yard. Regularly walk the yard in a 100 foot radius of your well looking for potential problems such as:

    • Poorly located and/or maintained septic systems.
    • Surface spills of fuels and oils
    • Improper disposal of household hazardous wastes such as paint, solvents, cleaners etc.
    • Road salts
    • Gardens and flowers beds should not be close to the well head. (fertilizers & herbicides)
    • Pet and livestock wastes, (don't tie the dog to the well head!)

    Inspection

    At minimum you should inspect your well once a year:

    • Access - Regulation 903 requires the well to be accessible. As part of the maintenance routine, clear the well head of brush and other debris. Ideally there should be a maintained lawn around the well head, but no fertilizers and pesticides in this area.
    • Well Cap - Check the well cap for signs of damage. The cap should fit firmly and snugly, the screened vent should face the ground. Clean the air vent.
    • Annular seal - if the casing can be moved by hand and there is a depression in the ground around the well casing, the sealant has cracked or shrunk. A faulty annular seal requires professional repair, call an MOE-licensed contractor.
    • Well casing - Regulation 903 requires the well casing to extend a minimum 16 inches above the finished grade. This is to prevent contamination by surface water and run-off. Wellpits were common on wells contstructed before 1985, the well casing was terminated below ground and an access pit such as well tiles were placed over and around the casing with a lid. Well pits are no longer considered safe because they often fill with surface water and debris, leading to contamination. If you have a well pit you should plan on hiring a licensed contractor to extend the casing above grade.
    • Abandoned Wells - if you have an unused and unmaintained well that has not been properly plugged and sealed arrangements should be made to have it professionally done. Old wells are a health and safety hazard, especially to children. Do not seal the well on your own, it is not easily done. When completed, the plugged and sealed well must prevent the direct flow of surface water into the water table.

    Testing

    The Ontario Ministry of the Environment and the Ontario Ministry of Health recommend that you sample and test your well water three times a year. You should test for bacteria, including total coliforms and E.coli. Call the Renfrew County and District Health Unit at 735-8654 or www.rcdhu.com for details on how to sample. The Health Unit provides these tests free of charge for private, domestic wells.

    Drinking water from wells used for commercial, institutional or industrial purposes are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act and must submit their samples to Accredited Laboratories. Watch this web site for more information on the Safe Drinking Water Act Regulations coming soon.

    <![CDATA[Domestic Well Water Quality]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/building/water-wells/domestic-well-water-quality-4492.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/building/water-wells/domestic-well-water-quality-4492.htmlWed, 27 Jun 2012 3:29:34 -0600Water quality is a term used to describe the chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of water, usually in respect to its suitability for a particular purpose. Although scientific measurements are used to define a water's quality, it's not a simple thing to say that "this is good water ," or "this is bad water ." After all, water that is perfectly good to wash a car with may not be good enough to serve as drinking water. When the average person asks about water quality, they probably want to know if the water is good enough to drink, cook, or wash with. Or they want to know if the quality of our natural waters are suitable for aquatic plants, fish and animals.

    Ground water may contain some natural impurities or contaminants, even with no human activity or pollution. Natural contaminants can come from many conditions in the watershed or in the ground. Because water is such an excellent solvent it can contain lots of dissolved chemicals. And since ground water moves through rocks and subsurface soil, it has a lot of opportunity to dissolve substances as it moves, such as magnesium, calcium and chlorides. For that reason, ground water will often have more dissolved substances than surface water will. Some ground water naturally contains dissolved elements such as arsenic, boron, selenium, or radon. Whether these natural contaminants are health problems depends on the amount of the substance present.

    In addition to natural contaminants, ground water is often polluted by human activities such as:

    • Improper use of fertilizers, animal manures, herbicides, insecticides, and pesticides. (gardens and flower beds too close to the well)
    • Improperly built or poorly located and/or maintained septic systems for household wastewater.
    • Leaking or abandoned aboveground/underground storage tanks and piping.
    • Surface spills of fuels and oils
    • Storm-water drains that discharge chemicals to ground water
    • Improper disposal or storage of wastes.
    • Improper disposal of household hazardous wastes such as paint, solvents, cleaners etc.
    • Road salts

    Noticeable Problems

    Visible

    • Scale or scum from calcium or magnesium salts in water.
    • Unclear/turbid water from dirt, clay salts, silt or rust in water.
    • Green stains on sinks or faucets caused by high acidity.
    • Brown-red stains on sinks, dishwasher, or clothes in wash points to dissolved iron in water.
    • Cloudy water that clears upon standing may have air bubbles from poorly working pump or problem with filters.

    Tastes

    • Salty or brackish taste from high sodium content in water.
    • Alkali/soapy taste from dissolved alkaline minerals in water.
    • Metallic taste from acidity or high iron content in water.
    • Chemical taste from industrial chemicals or pesticides.

    Smell

    • A rotten egg odor can be from dissolved hydrogen sulfide gas or certain bacteria in your water. If the smell only comes with hot water it is likely from a part in your hot water heater.
    • A detergent odor and water that foams when drawn could be seepage from septic tanks into your ground water well.
    • A gasoline or oil smell indicates fuel oil or gasoline likely seeping from a tank into the water supply.
    • Methane gas or musty/earthy smell from decaying organic matter in water

    Unnoticeable Problems

    Many serious problems can only be found by laboratory testing of water.

    • bacteria
    • heavy metals and minerals
    • nitrates
    • radon
    • pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals

    Separation Distances

    Because of all the above noted forms of contamination it is important to locate wells a safe distance from these possible sources or locate the sources of contamination as far as possible from existing wells. Regulation 903 prescribes that water wells be located as follows;

    • at least 15 metres (50 feet) for drilled wells with watertight casings that extend 6 metres (20 feet) or more below ground level.
    • at least 30 metres (100 feet) for all other wells.

    <![CDATA[Water Well Basics]]>http://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/building/water-wells/water-well-basics-7706.htmlhttp://www.lvtownship.ca/departments/building/water-wells/water-well-basics-7706.htmlWed, 27 Jun 2012 3:28:01 -0600A well gets its water from an underground source called groundwater. Ground water is a resource found under the earth’s surface. Most ground water comes from rain and melting snow soaking into the ground. Water fills the spaces between rocks and soils, making an “aquifer”. Ground water, its depth from the surface, quality for drinking water, and chance of being polluted, varies from area to area. Generally, the deeper the well, the better the ground water. The amount of new water flowing into the area also affects ground water quality.

    Dug wells

    Hacking at the ground with a pick and shovel is one way to dig a well. If the ground is soft and the water table is shallow,then dug wells can work. They are often lined with stones to prevent them from collapsing. They cannot be dug much deeper than the water table -- just as you cannot dig a hole very deep when you are at the beach... it keeps filling up with water!

    Driven wells

    Driven wells are still common today. They are built by driving a small-diameter pipe into soft earth, such as sand or gravel. A screen is usually attached to the bottom of the pipe to filter out sand and other particles. Problems? They can only tap shallow water, and because the source of the water is so close to the surface, contamination from surface pollutants can occur.

    Drilled wells

    Most modern wells are drilled, which requires a fairly complicated and expensive drill rig. Drill rigs are often mounted on big trucks. They use rotary drill bits that chew away at the rock, percussion bits that smash the rock, or, if the ground is soft,large auger bits. Drilled wells can be drilled more than 1,000 feet deep. Often a pump is placed at the bottom to push water up to the surface.

This gap, the annular space, is filled with a water tight sealant, usually bentonite. Bentonite does not crack or shrink in the ground. Regulation 903 prescribes the minimum depth of the sealant.

    Aquifer - An underground formation or group of formations in rocks and soils containing enough ground water to supply wells and springs.

    Backflow - Also called back siphonage, a reverse flow in water pipes. A difference in water pressures pulls water from sources other than the well into a home’s water system. For example, waste water or flood water.

    Bacteria - Microscopic living organisms; some are helpful and some are harmful. “Good” bacteria aid in pollution control by consuming and breaking down organic matter and other pollutants in septic systems, sewage, oil spills, and soils. However, “bad” bacteria in soil, water, or air can cause human, animal, and plant health problems.

    Coliform bacteria - a group of bacteria predominaantly inhabiting the intestines of humans or animals but occasionaly found elsewhere. The presence of this bacteria in water is used as an indication of fecal contamination. (contamination by human or animal waste)

    Confining layer - Layer of rock that keeps the ground water in the aquifer below it under pressure. This pressure creates springs and helps supply water to wells.

    Contaminant - Anything found in water (including microorganisms, minerals, chemicals, radionuclides, etc.) which may be harmful to human health.

    Cross-connection - Any actual or potential connection between a drinking (potable) water supply and a source of contamination.

    Heavy metals - Metallic elements with high atomic weights, such as, mercury chromium cadmium, arsenic, and lead. Even at low levels these metals can damage living things. They do not break down or decompose and tend to build up in plants, animals, and people causing health concerns.

    Hydrologic cycle - is the natural process of rain and snow falling to earth and evaporating back to form clouds and fall again. The water falling to earth flows into streams, rivers, lakes and into the soil collecting to form groundwater.

    Leaching field - The entire area where many materials (including contaminants) dissolve in rain, snowmelt, or irrigation water and are filtered through the soil.

    Microorganisms - Also called microbes. Very tiny life forms such as bacteria, algae, diatoms, parasites, plankton, and fungi. Some can cause disease.

    Nitrates - Plant nutrient and fertilizer that enters water supply sources from fertilizers, animal feed lots, manures, sewage, septic systems, industrial wastewaters, sanitary landfills, and garbage dumps.

    Nitrogen, in the forms of nitrate, nitrite, or ammonium, is a nutrient needed for plant growth. About 78% of the air that we breathe is composed of nitrogen gas. Some forms of nitrogen are commonly deposited in acid rain. Although nitrogen is abundant naturally in the environment, it is also introduced through sewage and fertilizers.

    Phosphorus - is an essential element for plant life, but when there is too much of it in water, it can speed up eutrophication (a reduction in dissolved oxygen in water bodies caused by an increase of mineral and organic nutrients) of rivers and lakes.

    Protozoa - small single-cell animals, usually microscopic, that are larger and more complex than bacteria. (including amoebas, ciliates and flagelates)

    Radon - A colorless, odorless naturally occurring radioactive gas formed by the breakdown or decay of radium or uranium in soil or rocks like granite. Radon is fairly soluble in water, so well water may contain radon.

    Radionuclides - a material with an unstable atomic nucleous that spontaneously decays or disintegrates producing radiation. Distinct radioactive particles coming from both natural sources and human activities. Can be very long lasting as soil or water pollutants.

    Recharge area - The land area through or over which rainwater and other surface water soaks through the earth to replenish an aquifer, lake, stream, river, or marsh. Also called a watershed.

    Runoff - that part of the precipitation or snow melt water that appears in uncontrolled surface streams, rivers, drains or sewers. Runoff may be classified according to speed of appearance after rainfall or melting snow as direct runoff or base runoff, and according to source as surface runoff, storm interflow, or ground-water runoff.

    Saturated zone - The underground area below the water table where all open spaces are filled with water. A well placed in this zone will be able to pump ground water.

    Unsaturated zone - The area above the ground water level or water table where soil pores are not fully saturated, although some water may be present.

    Viruses - Submicroscopic disease-causing organisms that grow only inside living cells.

    Watershed - is the land area where water soaks through the earth filling an underground water supply or aquifer. It is also called a recharge area.

    Water table - is the line below which the ground is saturated or filled with water and available for pumping. The water table will fall during dry seasons. A well can pump water from either the saturated zone or an aquifer. Wells must be deep enough to remain in the saturated zone.

    Well cap - A tight-fitting, vermin-proof seal designed to prevent contaminants from flowing down inside of the well casing.

    Well casing - The tubular lining of a well. Also a steel or plastic pipe installed during construction to prevent collapse of the well hole.

    Wellhead - The top of a structure built over a well. Term also used for the source of a well or stream.

    Well pit - common on wells contstructed before 1985, the well casing was terminated below ground and an access pit such as well tiles were placed over and around the casing with a lid. This was done to protect the water lines from freezing.

The Township tests the Municipal drinking water supplies weekly, to ensure they are safe. But it is a homeowner’s responsibility to test their own well water. Laurentian Valley Township has approximately 4,500 private water wells. Most of these wells are not tested for coliform bacteria and other contaminants on a regular basis. Many of these contaminants can cause sickness in people who drink, bathe, or cook with the water.

    These days we are hearing and reading about situations where the quality of water is not good enough for normal uses. Bacteria and other microorganisms have gotten into drinking-water supplies, causing severe illness and even deaths. Chemical pollutants have been detected in streams, endangering plant and animal life. Water quality has become a very big concern. If we are not diligent, the quality of our water supply will suffer.

    As a private water well owner, it is your duty to understand the basics of well maintenance. It is also the law, Regulation 903 of the Ontario Water Resources Act sets out your obligations as a private water well owner.

    As a responsible well owner, you need to carry out a regular program of well maintenance. Taking care of your well is a three-step process.

    1. Protect your well water at the ground surface by avoiding, eliminating or reducing contaminants.
    2. Inspect your well regularly and keep your well in good running order.
    3. Test your well water regularly and respond to contamination problems.

    For a longer, trouble free operation, you have to watch what gets flushed down the drain.

    How an on-site sewage disposal system operates

    A typical septic system consists of two major components, the tank and the bed. Septic tanks are constructed out of concrete or polyethylene. The tank is separated into two compartments with a baffle inside. The purpose of the tank is to separate the liquids from the solids, and to begin breaking down the contaminants. The solids settle to the bottom, scum floats to the top and the liquid effluent migrates past the baffle to the second compartment. This process occurs anaerobically, (without oxygen), so the tank needs to be sealed.

    After leaving the septic tank, the effluent flows to the bed area through the header. The leaching bed consists of perforated pipes, in the ground which distribute the effluent evenly over the natural soil or more commonly now, imported fill. The bed area further treats the effluent aerobically, bacteria which require oxygen, digest and remove the impurities; organic chemicals, viruses, suspended solids etc.. The filtered wastewater then aspirates and evaporates into the air above the bed or leaches into the natural soil and ultimately into the groundwater.

    DO'S

    • Reduce the amount of water and wastewater entering the septic system. This can be accomplished by installing low-flush toilets, water saving fixtures, doing only full loads of dishes or laundry. Fix leaking taps, less water in equals less water out.
    • Pump out the tank every 3 years, and have the tank inspected. 75% of the system failures are traced back to solids clogging the tank and bed
    • Maintain the area over the bed, keep the grass cut. Keep trees away, the roots will enter and clog up the pipes.
    • Use low sudsing, low phosphate detergents. Biodegradable detergents, with washing soda ingredients are recommended. Fabric softner dryer sheets are preferred over liquid softners in the wash.
    • Use recommended cleaning products which are non-chlorine, biodegradable, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
    • Have an effluent filter installed at the outlet of the tank, to reduce the amount of suspended solids entering the bed area.
    • Control water runoff from roofs, driveways and yards, grade away from the leaching bed area.

    DONT'S

    • do not do laundry all in one day each week, the large quantities of soapy water agitate the solids in the tank and dilute the beneficial microbes at work 
    • do not use the bed area as a parking lot or skating rink, the bed requires air to function properly. Compacting and/or freezing the soils will reduce the lifespan of your bed. 
    • do not dispose grease, fats and oils into the system, they do not break down and tend to clog the weepers. 
    • do not dump pesticides, herbicides, paints, automobile fluids, household chemicals, home brewery wastes, strong medicines, antibiotics or any other toxins into the system, they kill the active bacteria. 
    • do not drain furnace condensate discharges and water softner backwashes into the plumbing system. Instal a dry well.

We try to make it as easy as possible for you to obtain a permit for accessory buildings but there is certain information that is required. Incomplete applications merely slow down the process of obtaining the permit.

    This package should assist you in obtaining the proper permits with the least fuss possible. The information supplied here is of a general nature, some properties have restrictions that are unique to that site, if you have any questions, please call for specific information.

    SMALL STORAGE SHEDS (less than 500 ft2) Complete Section A, B, C, D if the contractor is known, Section E and sign and date Section H on the second page of the Application to Permit Construction. Mail or bring the application to the office, along with a plot (site) plan showing the proposed location. If the building is a kit from a building supply firm, just indicate which kit it is, no plans are required as these are on file, or submit with your sketches showing at minimum the spans, sizes and types of materials to be used in the construction of the garage or shed.

    LARGE SHEDS, GARAGES ETC. (Greater than 500 ft2) Complete Section A, B, C, D if the contractor is known, Section E and sign and date Section H on the second page of the Application to Permit Construction. Mail or bring the application to the office, along with a plot (site) plan showing the proposed location. If the building is a kit from a building supply firm, just indicate which kit it is, no plans are required as these are on file, or submit with your sketches showing at minimum the spans, sizes and types of materials to be used in the construction of the garage or shed. Please note that there are building code considerations in the design of concrete slabs on grade, please go to the concrete slab design page.

    Please note, if your property contains an onsite sewage disposal system you must not construct any buildings closer than 5 metres (17ft) to the tile bed. Indicate on the plot plan where the system is located.

    The permit fee for residential accessory buildings is $.08/ ft2, minimum of $30.00. Add $.01 if a plumbing permit will also be required.

    ZONING: I cannot issue a building permit for an accessory building until the main use is established, this means that in most cases a permit can not be issued for a detached garage, wood or storage shed until a home has been constructed. The minimum sideyard for accessory buildings in most rural and residential zones is 4 feet with very few exceptions. The minimum front yard in most rural and residential zones is 25 feet. The minimum rear yard is 3.3 ft. Please note that the Ontario Building Code in most cases will require a building constructed closer than 1.5 metres, (5ft) to the property line to be constructed and clad with non-combustible material. Therefore it is generally more cost effective to plan on 5' setbacks. In residential zones the accessory building must be constructed behind the main building, in the side and rear yards, an exception being properties that front on the Ottawa River. Accessory buildings can not be built closer than 2 metres (6.5') to the main building on the lot (spatial separation for fire control).

    OTTAWA RIVER FLOODPLAIN - Accessory buildings must also be constructed with their floors above the 1:100 year design flood fringe.

    Concrete in Garage Floors and Exterior Flatwork

    Please note, that when ordering the concrete for your garage floor, the Ontario Building Code calls for the following:

    9.3.1.6. Compressive Strength

    (See also Articles 9.12.4.1., 9.15.4.1. and 9.18.6.1.)

    (1) Except as provided elsewhere in this Part, the compressive strength of unreinforced concrete after 28 days shall be not less than:

    • (a) 32 MPa (4650 psi) for garage and carport floors and all exterior flatwork, and,
    • (b) 15 MPa (2200 psi) for all other applications.

    (2) Concrete used for garage and carport floors and exterior steps shall have air entrainment of 5 to 8%.

    The Ontario Building Code refers to CSA (Canadian Standards Association) and CSA A23.1" Concrete Materials and Method of Concrete Construction" includes 32MPa air entrained concrete as Class C-2. This is described as a minimum compressive strength of 32 MPa in 28 days, 5 to 8% air using 20mm course aggregate, maximum w/CM of 0.45.

    What is Charitable Gaming and how is it regulated in Ontario?

    Charitable gaming refers to lottery schemes permitted by a license under the Criminal Code of Canada. Typically these may include bingos, raffles and break open tickets held by charitable and religious organizations. Charitable organizations are regulated by licensing policies and the terms and the terms and conditions of the licences issued by the province or the municipalities under the authority of an Order in Council. The commercial sector of the charitable gaming industry is regulated by the Gaming Services Act, 1992 and Regulations proclaimed in force February 1, 1993.

    Who can get a licence to conduct a lottery scheme?

    Canada's Criminal Code permits charitable and religious organizations to conduct a lottery scheme to raise funds pursuant to a licence being issued. Organizations must have a demonstrated charitable or religious mandate to qualify. The courts have determined that the term "charitable" refers to organizations which provide programs for;

    • the relief of poverty;
    • the advancement of education;
    • the advancement of religion;
    • other charitable purposes beneficial to the community.

    The following pre-requisites are mandatory to be considered eligible for a lottery licence:

    • Organizations must have been in existence for at least one year before being considered eligible for lottery licences.
    • The organization must have a place of business in Ontario, demonstrate that it is established to provide charitable services in Ontario and use proceeds for objects or purposes which benefit Ontario residents.

    The primary purposes of an organization are determined by considering;

    • the mandate of the organization as set out in it's incorporation documents or documents stating the organizations objects
    • the objects of the organization as described in its application for licence
    • the services which have actually been provided by the organization to the community

    What types of charitable and religious organizations are eligible?

    Types of organizations in the four categories of charitable mandate include those providing for:

    The relief of poverty

    • the sick and dying
    • disabled persons
    • the homeless
    • the victims of crime
    • rehabilitating young offenders and parolees

    Funds may be provided to individuals or families where the relief is a short-term or one-time payment intended to relieve an exceptional or unusual condition or circumstance. (eg. helping a family whose house has burnt down).

    The advancement of education

    To be eligible, an organization must provide public programs which:

    • are geared to scholastic and vocational training for individuals
    • advance a recognized field of knowledge which leads to an accredited degree, diploma or certificate, and
    • do not include professional development

    Examples of organizations that could be eligible:

    • elementary and secondary public and Roman Catholic separate schools
    • accredited colleges and universities
    • private schools registered with Revenue Canada as a charitable organization
    • parent / teacher associations or other groups which are non-profit entities and which support one of the above types of institutions
    • scholarship or bursary funds registered with Revenue Canada as a charitable organization

    The advancement of religion

    Religious organizations must demonstrate that programs and services assist in the delivery of religious services and programs to the community. A religious body is considered charitable when its activities serve religious purposes for the public good. Other activities that advance religion include;

    • organizing and providing religious instruction, and performing pastoral and missionary work; and
    • establishing and maintaining buildings for worship and other religious use.

    Any purpose beneficial to the community

    To qualify an organization must demonstrate that;

    • it is operated an a not-for-profit basis, and its purposes include charitable or religious objects,
    • its services are offered to significant portion of the public, and
    • the proposed use of proceeds are consistent with its mandate

    Eligible organizations include those with mandates in;

    • culture and arts
    • health and welfare
    • physical education
    • community sport
    • youth sports where the majority of players are under 18
    • service to the community (service clubs)

    MAXIMUM ACCEPTABLE CONCENTRATION, is a health standard known to have adverse effects.

    IMAC
    INTERIM MAXIMUM ACCEPTABLE CONCENTRATION
    , suspected adverse health effects but not feasible for practical reasons to establish a MAC

    Adverse Test Result
    Is a test that fails, where the results exceed the MAC or IMAC, and retesting and boil water advisories must be issued.

    Absent
    Means that no traces were found in the sample submitted for testing.

    E. Coli
    Escherichia coli. is a fecal coliform that can be detected by using membrane filtration or presence/absence tests and should not be detected in any drinking water sample. Because E coli. is rapidly destroyed by chlorine, it is a good indicator of recent fecal pollution.

    Heterotrophic Plate Count
    HPC, A laboratory procedure for estimating the total bacteria count in a water sample. Also called standard plate count, total plate count, or total bacterial count. The sample is incubated for 48-72 hours, MAC of 500 colonies /milliliter. The only practical way to determine the total population of bacteria in the water.

    Background Bacteria
    Bacterial aftergrowth, bacteria reproducing in the system after it has been treated, usually in stagnant water in dead ends, or low flow sections of the water distribution system. The Standard Plate Count determines whether this problem exists.

    Total Coliforms
    The detection of coliform bacteria in a water sample is a warning of possible contamination. One positive test does not conclusivly prove contamination, hawever, additional tests must be done. The samples may have been contaminated by improper sampling, or laboratory error, therefore repeat sampling must be done.

    Chlorine Residual
    Is the amount of free chlorine and chlorine compounds in the distribution system available to kill or inactivate any microorganisms present or introduced to the water supply after it leaves the treatment plant. A chlorine residual of 0.2 mg/l measured at the exreme ends of the distribution system is a good indication that chlorine residual is available.

    Trihalomethanes
    Can be formed when organic materials are present in the water being disinfected with chlorine. Trihalomethanes are suspected carcinogenic compounds. Therefore there is a MAC of .10mg/liter on a 4 quarter rolling average.
