Important Notice Regarding Finance Department Matters:

The Municipality wishes to advise the public, with respect to utilities and other payments, that all amounts owing the Municipality are still due. Members of the public can remit their payments using the following channels:

  • Online banking
  • Dropping off payments in the drop-box at the Municipal Office
  • Mailing payments via regular post
  • Calling the Finance Department with a credit card number

Despite these alternative payment methods, the Municipality recognizes that there still may be challenges in paying bills on time, therefore, there will be no penalties or finance changes on any amounts owing between March 16th and the date that the Municipal Office reopens to the public (which has yet to be determined).

Additionally, if people have pre-authorized payments (PAPs) set-up to pay Municipal bills, and they wish to suspend these payments due to lack of work, please contact the Finance Department to make specific arrangements in this regard. Suspending PAPs without first contacting the Finance Department will result in penalties.

You may contact the Finance Department by calling 807.737.2700 and pressing extension 2232 during regular office hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time).
