Civic Addressing ensure your address is visible and your access is clear for emergency services.
Sign and Entrance
Known as a 9-1-1 address, a street address, or a civic address, this designation is made up of individual parts that combine to uniquely describe a specific location.Civic Addressing is primarily in place to help emergency services locate properties. Addresses are subsequently referenced for mail, phone service, etc.
ALL residents, permanent and seasonal...
Make sure you have a civic address and it is properly posted.
Make sure your signage and property access is clear for emergency services.
Civic addresses are extremely important for emergency services. The civic address number sign, the post, and the number blade, must be maintained BY THE OWNER at all times. Civic addresses are purchased from the Township and after installation they are owned by the property owner.
Removing 911 signs can affect the quality of emergency services, and the removal of any road or civic address sign is a serious offence that should be reported to the OPP as well as the Township for immediate replacement.
*All other driveways that enter from a laneway, or private lane, should be made sufficiently accessible for emergency vehicles.
- Your property requires a civic address as part of a building permit
- Your property was never addressed previously, and you wish to have it addressed,
- Your property signage was damaged and you are replacing it

911 Addressing Facts in North Frontenac
- All 911 signs in North Frontenac are blue
- Roads and Lanes originating in North Frotnenac begin addressing at "1000"
- Even numbers on the right, odd numbers on the left, when travelling through ascending addresses
- Numbers increase in 10 meter intervals, therefore;
- The address 1020 is 100m from the beginning
- The address 1200 is 1km from the beginning
- The address 2000 is 5km from the beginning
- Calculate the distance of your own address;
- example 1087
- subtract 1000 (1087 - 1000 = 87)
- divide by 2 (87 / 2 = 43.5)
- multiply by 10 (435)
- therefore you are ~435 meters from the beginning of your road
