Sioux Lookout, ON – While the provincial declaration of emergency and Stay-at-Home Order expire on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, we will continue to operate in the Shutdown Zone of Stage 1.

This means that indoor gatherings are not allowed with anyone you do not live with, except one other person from outside the household who lives alone or is a caregiver. Outdoor gatherings remain limited to five people with physical distancing of two metres for people outside of your household. Masks or face coverings are also required during permitted events, such as weddings, funerals, and religious services, rites, or ceremonies.

At this time, all Municipal buildings will remain closed to the public until step two of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen takes effect. Although our doors remain closed, staff is still working so that essential Municipal services continue with minimal interruptions. Our phone lines are being monitored and we continue our efforts to return calls as soon as possible.

Currently, these Municipal facilities remain CLOSED to the public:

  • The Municipal Office
  • The Recreation Centre and Gymnasium – except for vaccination clinics
  • The Public Works Garage
  • The Fire Hall
  • The Airport Administration Building

These Municipal facilities will remain OPEN to the public:
