If so, for any project, big or small, call 1-800-400-2255 or visit at least 5 days before you plan to dig to request underground utility locates. If you have hired a contractor, make sure your contractor has contacted Ontario One Call.

Requesting locates before starting to dig will not only keep you and others safe from underground infrastructure, but it’s also the law. You can visit for more information. It’s a free service and available 24/7.

Note: The locate request does not replace the need for a building permit. Before undergoing any type of work on your property, check with the town’s Building & Inspection Service at to see if a building permit is required.
