Boats and Trailers

The City’s zoning by-law does not permit boats or trailers to be parked in the front yard or in any side yard that abuts a street. The only exception to this rule is a pop-up camping trailer that is not longer than 5.0 metres (16.4 feet) that is parked/stored in the collapsed position.

The zoning by-law will permit one (1) of the following vehicles and/or trailers to be parked and stored in the rear or interior side yard of a residential property:

  • A boat
  • A snowmobile
  • A personalized motorized water craft
  • A utility trailer 
  • A boat on a trailer, together not exceeding 7 metres (23 feet) in length
  • One or two snowmobiles on a trailer, together not exceeding 7 metres (23 feet) in length
  • One or two personal motorized water crafts on a trailer, together not exceeding 7.0 metres (23 feet) in length

Trailers that meet the zoning requirements for storage are not permitted to be used for the accommodation or occupation of people.
