2018 / 2019 Recycle Schedule

Garbage and Recycling - Street Schedule

IC&I and Multi-Residential Recycling Schedule

      Residential Bag Limit

Beginning May 1, 2017, the Town of Deep River introduced a two (2) bag limit for residential household waste collection. Businesses are exempt from these bag limits. The purpose of this bag limit is to encourage all residents to recycle. Increased diversion of waste will increase the life of local landfills and reduce waste management costs for residents.

Definition of Two (2) Bags

Two bags are defined as two individual garbage bags or two waste containers that hold a maximum combined volume of 154 litres of household waste. (A standard garbage bag    measuring 26”x32” equals 77 litres.)

What if I have more than “two bags”?

You can purchase bag tags and attach them to all bags in excess of the two (2) bag limit. Bag tags can be purchased Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at Town Hall for $2.00 per bag tag. Revenues from the sale of bag tags will be allocated to the future  closing costs of the Baggs Road Landfill Site.

Can I take extra bags to the Baggs Road Landfill Site?

Yes. However, all residents of Deep River will be required to pay $2.00 per bag or the bag must have a bag tag attached to it to dispose of waste at the Bagg’s Landfill Site.

What should I do if I have questions?

Completed forms must be submitted before October 31st each year for the projects scheduled for the next calendar year.

The different types of grants awarded under the Grants Program are as identified.

“Community Project” grants are defined as one-time assistance either as seed funding for the start-up of an organization/project, or funds for a short-term undertaking with a start-up and completion date or loan guarantees to assist an organization in acquiring the financial assistance from financial institutions needed to support the construction of the project or support for a specific project.

“Corporate” grants are defined as operating funding to assist with the general operating expenses of the group, including administrative costs and program-related expenses as well as leadership costs such as coaching, training and instruction.

“Special Events” grants are defined as any one-time or first-time event that is of cultural, social or recreational significance to the community and which may have the participation of more than one organization.

“Community Event” is defined as a recurring event that Council has determined provides some significant benefit to the broad community, and is open to all members of the public.

Grant assistance in any one year or over several years is not to be interpreted as a commitment to future year’s funding.

All grant applicants shall be notified, in writing, of Council’s decision.

Payment

The term of a grant shall be for one year only unless Council has endorsed a multi-year commitment in the Community Project grant category.

Applicants are advised that grants may not be continued from year to year.

Mid-Year Review Process

Community groups that will be seeking funding for consecutive years will be required to provide a mid-year report which will include the following information:

  1. A multi-year financial forecast (3 to 5 years) for the organization which should include estimated revenues and expenditures;

  1. A list of completed or planned applications for funding from other funding sources

including other levels of government where applicable for the following year;

This information must be submitted to the Recreation Program Coordinator no later than August 1st in each year. Financial sustainability is critical to the ongoing success for this program. Community groups should not rely on this program as their main source of funding each year.

'When The Eagles stopped to catch their breath a few decades ago, having sold over 100 million records, collected six Grammy’s, and enjoyed six #1 albums, Hotel California began a pioneering journey through their history-making music that has taken them around the globe and thrilled hundreds of thousands of Eagles fans. It’s been a journey they could never have imagined back in 1986, but their dedication, unique musical gifts, and an obsessive commitment to doing this legendary music true justice in performance, set them apart from the many Eagles bands that came after them. Hotel California toured relentlessly from the 80’s straight through to today, setting the standard for world-class tribute productions as they went, and sharing stages with the likes of The Doobie Bros., Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gretchen Wilson, REO Speedwagon, and many more. From Japan to Dubai, Toronto to Texas, Hotel California has boldly taken the tribute band where none had gone before them, and changed an industry’s collective mind about how good a “tribute” band could really be.'

What is an Oath?

  • An oath is a solemn declaration by which a person signifies he or she is bound in conscience to perform an act faithfully and truthfully.  

What is an Affirmation?

  • An affirmation is a solemn declaration that serves the same purpose as an oath, if an oath is objectionable to the person on religious or ethical grounds.

What is an Affidavit?

  • An affidavit is a document containing statements that are verified by the swearing of an oath or by an affirmation.  Affidavits are generally used for the purpose of establishing legal rights and may be required to attest to a certain fact or set of facts.

    There are four parts to an affidavit:

  1. Identification of the person giving the affidavit (deponent or affiant);
  2. Body of the affidavit, which provides the evidence or the statement of facts;
  3. The signature of the deponent; and
  4. Jurat – including the signature of the Commissioner taking the affidavit.  The jurat is the certificate of the commissioner before whom the document was sworn.  It sets out the location of where the oath was administered and the date of the oath.  By signing the jurat, the commissioner is certifying that he or she has administered the oath to the deponent.  If exhibits are attached to the affidavit, then the commissioner must also sign the exhibits certifying them to be part of the affidavit.

What is a Commissioner of Oaths?

  • A Commissioner of Oaths (also known as a Commissioner for Taking Affidavits) is a person authorized to take your oath or solemn affirmation when you sign an affidavit or a statutory declaration.
  • Commissioner of Oaths service is offered at the Town of Deep River municipal office. Since the nature of documents varies, it is recommended that you contact the Town prior to your visit to confirm your attestation can by commissioned by staff. 
  • A Commissioner does not certify the statements being made in the affidavit or statutory declaration are true, but only certifies that an oath or solemn affirmation has been administered properly.

What is the duty of the Commissioner of Oaths?

  • Every oath and declaration shall be taken by the deponent in the presence of the commissioner, notary public, justice of the peace or other officer or person administering the oath or declaration who shall satisfy himself or herself of the genuineness of the signature of the deponent or declarant and shall administer the oath or declaration in the manner required by law before signing the jurat or declaration. (Commissioner of Oaths Act R.S.O. 1990, c. C. 17, s.9).
  • There is no fee for this service.

Is there a difference between a Commissioner of Oaths and a Notary Public?

  • Yes - a Notary Public has broader authority than a Commissioner of Oaths. A Commissioner is not able to notarize documents such as complete passport documentation or certify documents as true. We are not able to offer notary public services at this time. a list of notary publics or lawyers can be found in your local telephone directory.
  • CERTIFIED COPIES: A Commissioner of Oaths and Affidavits are only empowered to administer oaths and take Affidavits and Declarations. You will require a Notary Public to certify true copies of documents.

Please Note:  The request for Commissioner of Oaths service must be made by the same individual taking the oath and signing the document.  You must present one original piece of photo identification in the form of government-issued photo ID (i.e. valid drivers licence, valid passport, valid age-of-majority card).  If your identification and/or document is in a language other than English or French, an official translation of the identification and/or document may be required.  The deponent must sign the affidavit in the presence of the Commissioner.  If the document has already been signed, the person will be asked to sign a second time in front of the Commissioner.  Any changes that have been made in the body of the document that are present at the time of signing must be initialed by both the deponent and the Commissioner.  Any changes that are not initialed may be deemed to have been fraudulently changed after being commissioned and invalidate the document.  If your affidavit requires both a witness and a Commissioner signature, you must provide your own witness.  The Commissioner cannot prepare affidavits or provide you with any advice with respect to the documents you are swearing.  You need to read and fully understand the documents yourself.  The Commissioner reserves the right to refuse to commission documents.

Periodically, municipal officials are named as persons able to certify documents for such purposes as applications for Canada Pension, Old Age Security etc.  Any such certification will be noted as limited to the purpose for which it was obtained and this service will be provided only where the customer supplies evidence that the municipal official is explicitly authorized to certify the document.

If you require commissioning services, please call (613) 584-2000 to make an appointment.  It is recommended you call ahead to ensure a Commissioner is available.

The Town of Deep River does not prepare affidavits or provide legal advice.  We also wish to advise that Commissioners will not witness Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Divorce, Separation, Custody, Theft, Financial or Real Estate related documents.   We suggest these documents be taken to a solicitor for appropriate advice and assistance. The Commissioner reserves the right to refuse to commission documents.

<![CDATA[Bill 8: How to submit complaints about your municipality to the Ontario Ombudsman]]>http://www.deepriver.ca/news/bill-8-the-ontario-ombudsman-will-now-oversee-complaints-about-municipalities-966.htmlhttp://www.deepriver.ca/news/bill-8-the-ontario-ombudsman-will-now-oversee-complaints-about-municipalities-966.htmlFri, 26 Jul 2019 6:24:24 -0700 Photograph of Paul Dube, Ontario's Ombudsman
PAUL DUBÉ - OMBUDSMAN

WHAT IS BILL 8?

This legislation makes historic changes to the Ombudsman’s mandate, allowing the Office of the Ombudsman to help more Ontarians. It expands the Ombudsman’s jurisdiction to municipalities, universities and school boards. The public can file complaints about school boards as of September 1, 2015 and municipalities and universities as of January 1, 2016.

As a resident of the Town of Deep River, you may submit a formal complaint by phone at (613) 584-2000 extension 126 or by visiting Town Hall at 100 Deep River Road and asking to speak with the Chief Administrative Officer. You can also e-mail complaints@deepriver.ca. You will be asked to submit your complaint in writing in your own words. Complaints that may not be resolved by administrative staff will be referred to Council.

What is the Ombudsman's new mandate as a result of the Public Sector and MPP Accountability and Transparency Act, 2014 (also known as Bill 8)?

As a result of legislative changes, the Office of the Ontario Ombudsman will now oversee Ontario’s 444 municipalities, 82 school boards, and 21 universities.
 
The Ombudsman will have the authority to investigate complaints about Ontario’s municipalities including about municipal councils, local boards and municipally-controlled corporations, with some exemptions. The Ombudsman will also be able to investigate complaints about school boards including, but not limited to, handling complaints about individual schools, policies, procedures and facilities. Additionally, any university that receives regular and direct government funding will now fall within the Ombudsman’s jurisdiction.

Who can complain to the Office of the Ombudsman?

Anyone who has a concern about a municipality, university or school board can complain, including residents, students, staff, parents, and family members. Under the Ombudsman Act, the Ombudsman has discretion not to investigate a complaint from someone who is not personally involved in the matter, but this is based on the circumstances of each individual case. The Ombudsman can also launch an investigation on his/her own motion.

How will oversight work?

 People will be able to submit a complaint about municipalities, universities, and school boards the same way they submit a complaints about the 500 provincial government agencies the Ombudsman oversees now. Once the Ombudsman's Office receives a complaint – via phone, mobile app, email, web form, or in person – the Ombudsman's Office will assess the issue to determine if they can assist. They may provide appropriate referrals – including back to local oversight mechanisms – or they may be able to take action on the file to resolve the problem. The Ombudsman looks at each complaint individually.

What do I need to do, if anything, before complaining to the Ombudsman?

The Ombudsman is an office of last resort. This means that you first need to contact your municipality, school board or university and access any available complaint mechanisms or appeals before the Ombudsman can deal with your complaint. If you have a question about the complaint mechanisms available to you, you can call the Office of the Ombudsman at 1-800-263-1830, TTY (teletypewriter): 1-866-411-4211 or by Email at info@ombudsman.on.ca. When you submit a complaint to the Ombudsman, you will be asked to provide any documentation, correspondence or other information that you have gathered which may be relevant to your complaint.

Does the Ombudsman replace local complaint mechanisms?

Our Office will not replace any local integrity commissioner, ombudsman, or other office that deals with complaints, but we can review decisions of those bodies to ensure the appropriate policies and procedures were followed. The Ombudsman encourages municipalities, universities and school boards to create or reinforce local ombudsman or other complaint mechanisms and accountability offices. If you have not already raised your complaint with a local complaint mechanism, we will refer you back to that office. Under the Ombudsman Act, the Ombudsman functions as an office of last resort.

What kind of municipal issues will the Ombudsman be able to investigate?

The Ombudsman will be able to investigate complaints about the administrative conduct of municipalities, including complaints about council members, local boards, and municipally-controlled corporations (with some exceptions). Issues the Ombudsman could look at (after local complaint mechanisms have failed to resolve the matter) include: conflict of interest, customer service provided by city staff, complaints about municipally-owned utilities, garbage collection, snow removal, or other municipal services. If you don’t know if your complaint falls within the Office’s jurisdiction, please contact Office of the Ombudsman and a staff member will advise you.

Can the Ombudsman refuse to investigate my complaint?

Yes. The Ombudsman has broad discretion not to investigate a complaint. The Ombudsman may consider, among other factors, the age of the complaint, if the complainant has sufficient personal interest in the subject matter, whether or not there is an alternative remedy for the complaint, if the complaint is considered frivolous or vexatious or if the matter involves a broader public policy issue. Each complaint is assessed on a case-by-case basis to determine if an investigation is warranted.

If I make a complaint to the Ombudsman, will my identity be disclosed?

Under the Ombudsman Act, all complaints, including the identity of the complainant, are confidential and investigations are conducted in private. However, depending on the nature of the complaint, it may be necessary for a person to consent to being identified to the applicable government organization so that their complaint can be thoroughly reviewed and investigated. In cases involving municipal closed meetings, given that the Ombudsman's role is limited to ensuring municipal councils and committees comply with the open meeting provisions of the Municipal Act, the identity of the complainant is not normally relevant and not normally disclosed.

Does the municipality, university or school board have to cooperate with the Ombudsman’s investigation?

Yes, all municipalities, universities and school boards will be required under the Ombudsman Act to co-operate fully with the Ombudsman’s office when responding to a complaint. The Ombudsman has very robust investigative powers, including the authority to issue summonses, require evidence under oath, and inspect premises. It is an offence under the Ombudsman Act to mislead the Ombudsman or to obstruct an Ombudsman investigation.

Will municipalities, universities and school boards have to accept the Ombudsman's recommendations?

The Ombudsman recommends solutions to fix problems of maladministration. She/he cannot overturn decisions made by municipalities, school boards or universities. Organizations don’t have to act on the Ombudsman’s recommendations, but historically, almost all of our recommendations have been accepted. We usually publish the results of major investigations and ask that the affected organization report back regularly on its progress, and monitor complaint trends closely. The Ombudsman can reopen an investigation if necessary.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE TOWN OF DEEP RIVER SIGNS HISTORIC INTERIM-FIRE SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH CNL

DEEP RIVER, Ontario, December 04, 2017 – Today Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and the Town of Deep River signed an historic interim agreement that will see CNL’s Chalk River Laboratories (CRL) Fire Operations provide training, organization and management of the Town’s fire services from December 4, 2017 to June 30, 2018.

In this interim agreement, CRL Fire Operations will provide a Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief to the Town fire service during this transition of management and organization. The costs for these personnel will be borne by the Town of Deep River.

This is the first building block that allows for the development of a longer term, stronger partnership for all parties. This step benefits residents, employees and business owners in the Town of Deep River through an enhanced level of fire protection.

“The interim agreement with CNL provides our residents, businesses and employees with confidence that Council remains focused on the provisions of an effective fire service. The Town of Deep River will continue to move forward in a strategic but determined manner towards enhanced fire services; granting an increased level of fire protection and beginning to address decades-old challenges in a cost-effective manner,” said Deep River Mayor Joan Lougheed.

During the time of this interim agreement, both parties will work collaboratively to negotiate a comprehensive, long-term Fire Protection Services Agreement (FPSA) for the Town of Deep River. “Our first priority is to ensure the safety of residents, businesses and employees of Deep River,” said Mayor Joan Lougheed. “I want to thank CNL President Mark Lesinski and his team who made this partnership possible through their commitment and dedication.”

“CNL is pleased to work with the town of Deep River through the implementation of this interim agreement. As CNL places health and safety as a high priority in our operations, so too does the municipality, this is evident in its efforts to provide continuing fire services for its residents,” said CNL President & CEO Mark Lesinski. “This approach will not compromise the Chalk River Laboratories’ site safety, and will provide the residents of Deep River with short-term assistance while a permanent municipal fire services solution is determined.”

A Memorandum of Understanding recognizing the Town of Deep River’s unique status as the Host Community of CRL was also agreed to between Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), CNL and Deep River.

“This interim fire services agreement is a great example of what can be accomplished under the terms of our Memorandum of Understanding with the Town of Deep River. It is important to recognize our host community and to leverage areas for collaboration where all parties can benefit,” said Richard Sexton, President and CEO of AECL.

“CRL Fire Operations capabilities and experience is best in class,” said Reeve Glenn Doncaster. “Their level of training and professionalism will be a tremendous benefit to the Deep River fire service and our entire community as we move forward.”

Joint release by the Town of Deep River and WCCT

 

A big step towards greatly improved internet service in Deep River

The Town of Deep River and Weesoe Community Communication Technologies (WCCT) are pleased to announce that they have signed a unique and historic agreement to enable residents of the Town of Deep River to access greatly improved Internet service. “This agreement is in the Town’s strategic interest and responds directly to a top priority raised during last fall’s, election” said Councillor Bob McLaren.

Many areas of the town receive service that is very low speed compared to services available in larger centers in the province. The Town has agreed to loan WCCT up to $500,000 to be used to expand and improve internet services through upgrade and expansion of the current WCCT wireless tower infrastructure and the addition of fiber connectivity between towers.

The Town and WCCT have been cooperating for the past two years, including making use   of the water tower and town lands (such as the tower at Hill Park). WCCT is a registered not-for-profit corporation created by local volunteers (led by Ross Judd and Chris Knight) in the fall of 2016 with the goal of improving internet in the area, saving residents money on their internet and phone services, and providing any operating surplus to the Deep River and District Hospital.   (More information on WCCT is available at their website at wcc-tech.com)

The plans, facilitated through this agreement, will see expansion into previously underserved areas.  When the work is complete, WCCT will deliver: 25/5 (25 mbps download and 5 Mbps upload) and other services (telephone and video streaming capabilities) to at least 80% of the residents of Deep River. WCCT also will have the ability to provide custom services attractive to businesses (e.g. 50mpbs/50mpbs) as well as back-up power and redundant connectivity. The enhancements are expected to begin this summer and be complete by June 2021.

The scope of work will involve replacing aging infrastructure which has reached its end-of-life.

This type of project is considered maintenance work with relatively minor effects, and is subject to the Class Environmental Assessment for Minor Transmission Facilities (Hydro One, 2016), in accordance with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Contingent on the outcome of the Class EA process, construction may begin as early as September 2019 and be complete before the end of 2021.

Hydro One has notified First Nations communities of the Class EA and will also be notifying property owners adjacent to the work areas. A Community Information Centre (CIC) will be held on March 27 at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 517, located at 3583 Petawawa Blvd., in Petawawa, Ontario, to provide interested parties and groups the opportunity to learn more about the project and the Class EA process as well as to provide feedback.

THE TOWN OF DEEP RIVER AND TSH DEVELOPMENT GROUP ARE EXCITED TO
ANNOUNCE A NEW RENTAL HOUSING PROJECT FOR DEEP RIVER


There is new rental housing coming to Deep River. Tim Streek, of TSH Development
Group is proud to announce plans to build a multi-unit rental apartment building at the
corner of Poplar Street and Montcalm Street, in the heart of downtown Deep River.


“Recent reports from a Council appointed Citizen Housing Advisory Committee in 2015
firmly underpins our belief that the need for new multi-unit residential living in Deep River
is significant.” says Streek. Utilizing the research and data gathered by the Deep River
Citizen Housing Advisory Committee, TSH Developments is reviewing detailed plans for
a 4 story apartment complex with 2 bedroom units that will be barrier free.


Mayor Joan Lougheed stated, “When Mr. Streek reported to Council in April of this year
his interest to develop rental housing, I was excited. Now that TSH is proceeding, I am
truly delighted. “This project is the culmination of a lot of hard work by many people,
especially the Citizen Housing Advisory Committee, whose Seniors‘ Housing Needs
Survey supported Mr. Streeks’ needs analysis”, said Mayor Lougheed. Monica Mulvihill,
Chair of the Housing Advisory Committee said, “I am thrilled that Mr. Streek has been
successful in purchasing this Downtown property. This property, purchased by TSH
Development Group from previous owners Ken Philipose and Malay Pandit, was
identified as the ideal location by the majority of the survey respondents.”


TSH Developments has a proven record of successful, attractive projects in neighbouring
municipalities. It is anticipated that Phase 1 of the project will begin in the Spring of 2019,
with occupancy anticipated by the Fall of 2020.

All Planning matters must first go through a Pre-Consultation process. Pre-consultation is not pre-approval of an application. Please fill out a General Inquiry Form below and submit to the Town of Deep River Planning Department (2nd floor at the Town Hall) Once received, staff will submit to Planners at the County of Renfrew for review. Please note, pre-consultation is not pre-approval of an application. The County of Renfrew will respond to this inquiry with a  Planning Checklist which will identify the policies that would be considered in the review of a formal application. The County of Renfrew will endeavour to respond to this inquiry within 3 to 4 weeks. The response will be delayed if the information required on this form is not fully completed.


 

Official Plan

The purpose of the Official Plan is to guide the physical development of the Town of Deep River by articulating policies and land use designations that describe and promote the desired future form of the Town.

The Official Plan is the Town's policy document. All planning activities should be consistent with Official Plan policies. In Deep River, the Official Plan attempts to create a planning framework "that will foster growth, development and diversification while ensuring that the unique character of the Town is maintained.

Comprehensive Zoning By-law

Planning staff administer the Town's Comprehensive Zoning By-law, 24-96 as amended. The Zoning By-law is the document that implements Official Plan policies. The Zoning By-law must be considered when undertaking virtually any new construction project and many renovation projects. Town staff will work with the proponents to help interpret the by-law and work through any issues that may result.

Proponents may also wish to consult the Zoning By-law when purchasing property or establishing a new business. Again, Town staff will be available to help interpret the by-law and deal with any resulting issues.

Site Plan Control

The Planning Act of Ontario grants municipalities the authority to review and approve site plans for certain types of development in accordance with established municipal requirements. Site Plan Control Review, an integral component of the municipal planning and development review process, focuses on the technical issues of site design rather than land use. In Deep River, commercial, industrial institutional and medium and high density housing projects are subject to site plan control. Planning staff administer the site plan control by-law are available for pre-consultation with applicants. Applications for site plan approval should be submitted to planning staff.

Site Plan Control Application Form

Minor Variance

The Committee of Adjustment is appointed by Council to deal with minor problems in meeting municipal zoning by-law provisions. Minor Variances provide flexibility so that developments which do not precisely meet the requirements of a Zoning By-law may still proceed. Obtaining a minor variance involves an application to the Committee of Adjustment by submission of an application and appropriate fee, followed by a public hearing, full consideration of the proposal, and a decision rendered. Once the 20 day appeal period has expired, the committee's decision is binding. A minor variance does not change the existing by-law, but rather provides relief from specific requirements of the by-law to suit special circumstances, for a site-specific property.

There are four key tests that the Committee considers when evaluating applications:

  1. The variance should be minor
  2. It should be desirable for the appropriate development or use of the land, building or structure.
  3. It should maintain the general intent of the Zoning By-law.
  4. It should maintain the general intent and purpose of the Official Plan.

Consent

The County of Renfrew reviews and deals with all Consent/Severance applications for the Town of Deep River. Consent/Severance means the authorized separation of a piece of land to form two new adjoining properties, when a registered plan of subdivision is not considered necessary for the proper and orderly development of a municipality. In addition to the division of land, rights-of-way, easements and any change to your existing property boundaries also require land severance approval. Planning staff at the County of Renfrew are available to review the Official Plan policies and Zoning By-law provisions which will affect applications for variance or consents. You can reach the County of Renfrew Planning Department at 613 735-3204.

How you and your community can prevent and report encounters with black bears.

To view the full article please use the following link: https://www.ontario.ca/page/prevent-bear-encounters-bear-wise

If you encounter a black bear

Stop. Do not panic. Remain calm.

Quickly assess the situation and try to determine which type of an encounter this might be – sighting, surprise or close encounter.

When bears are caught off guard, they are stressed, and usually just want to flee. Generally, the noisier the bear is, the less dangerous it is, provided you don't approach the bear. The noise is meant to ‘scare’ you off and acts as a warning signal.

If you see a black bear:

  • do not try to get closer to the bear for a better look or picture
  • make sure the bear has a clear escape route — don’t corner a bear
  • always watch the bear and slowly back away until the bear is out of sight
  • get inside, if you are near a building or vehicle
  • leave the area, if you are berry-picking, hiking, camping, jogging or cycling
  • if you are with others, stay together and act as a group
  • if the bear does not get closer to you, slowly back away, talking to the bear in a quiet, monotone voice

Bear warning signs

Black bear attacks are extremely rare. A black bear may attack if it:

  • feels threatened - if it perceives you to be a threat to it, its cubs or it may be defending food - this is a defensive bear that wants more space between you and it
  • is a predatory bear - usually occur in rural or remote areas. Predatory bears approach silently, and may continue to approach regardless of your attempts to deter them by yelling or throwing rocks

There are warning signals threatened or predatory bears give to let you know you are too close:

  • Stands on its hind legs - a bear usually stands to get a better look at you or ‘catch your scent’.  This is not aggressive behaviour.
  • Acts defensively - if a bear feels threatened by your presence, it may try to get you to back off and leave it alone.  To do this, it may:
    • salivate excessively, exhale loudly, or make huffing, moaning, clacking and popping sounds with its mouth, teeth and jaws
    • lower its head with its ears drawn back while facing you
    • charge forward, and/or swat the ground with its paws (known as a ‘bluff’ charge)

Do not:

  • scream
  • turn your back on the bear
  • run
  • kneel down
  • make direct eye contact
  • climb a tree
  • retreat into water or try and swim — a bear can do these things much better than you

Do:

  • wave your arms to make yourself look bigger and yell at the bear to go away
  • throw objects
  • blow a whistle or an air horn
  • make noise to try and persuade the bear to leave
  • prepare to use bear pepper spray

If the bear keeps advancing toward you

  • Stand your ground
  • Use your bear pepper spray (if the bear is close) or anything else you can find or use to threaten or distract the bear
  • Fight back as if your life depends on it

If the bear attacks

  • use your pepper spray
  • fight back with everything you have — in a predatory attack, your life is at risk
  • do  not  play dead except in the rare instance when you are sure a mother bear is attacking you in defense of cubs and your initial attempts to deter the bear have been unsuccessful (especially true for children or small-bodied adults)

How to prevent conflicts with black bears

Bears usually avoid humans. But they are attracted into urban and rural areas to get food. They will topple bird feeders, ransack barbecues, raid garbage cans and even try to enter buildings. If they learn that they can find food where people live, bears will return again and again. Relocation and destruction are poor ways of trying to prevent conflicts with bears.

You can prevent conflicts with bears by following these steps.

Remove bear attractants

When bears pick up a scent with their keen noses, they will investigate it. If they find bird food, garbage or pet food they will return as long as the food source is available.

Colour image dipicting a black bear on the left separated with a yellow line from the top five bear attractants described in the text.

Garbage

  • put garbage out only on the morning of garbage day, not the night before
  • put garbage in containers that have tight-fitting lids and store it in a bear-proof location such as your basement or a sturdy garage
  • spray garbage cans and lids with bleach or another a strong disinfectant
  • take garbage to the dump often, if you do not have curbside pick-up

Bird feeders

  • fill bird feeders only through the winter months
  • put away feeders in the spring and instead, offer birds natural alternatives (e.g. flowers, nesting boxes, fresh water)

Pet food

Do not leave pet food outdoors, in screened- in areas or porches

Fruits and berries

  • pick all ripe and fallen fruit from trees and shrubs on your property
  • plant non-fruit bearing trees and shrubs

Barbecue

  • burn off food residue and wash the grill right away
  • empty the grease trap every time you barbecue
  • remove all utensils, dishes and food after eating

Avoid bear-human interactions

When out in bear country:

  • travel in groups of 2 or more (bears primarily attack people who are alone)
  • make noise as you move through areas where visibility is restricted or where background noise is high, such as near streams and waterfalls (e.g., singing, whistling or talking will alert bears to your presence, giving them a chance to avoid you)
  • while outdoors, keep your eyes and ears open:
    • scan your surroundings to check for bears
    • do not wear music headphones
    • watch for signs of bear activity (e.g., tracks, claw marks on trees, flipped-over rocks or fresh bear droppings)
    • if you are out with a dog, leash it (uncontrolled, untrained dogs may actually lead a bear to you)
    • pay attention, especially if you are working, gardening or berry picking
    • occasionally scan your surroundings to check for bears
    • rise slowly if you are in a crouched position so that you don’t startle nearby bears

Take community action

It takes the local community to prevent conflicts with bears. You may be doing your part, but if your neighbour is not, you may still encounter a bear on your property as a result.

Commit your community to becoming Bear Wise. Remind your neighbours to do their part by:

  • sharing this information with your neighbours
  • starting the conversation about how you can work together to prevent conflicts with bears (e.g. making sure the whole street waits until morning to put out garbage for collection)

Be prepared

When out in bear country:

  • carry a whistle or air horn
  • learn how to use bear pepper spray and carry it somewhere that’s easy to access
  • consider carrying a long-handled axe, if you are in remote areas or deep in the forest

Who to contact

Emergencies

Call 911 or your local police, if you feel a bear poses an immediate threat to personal safety and:

  • enters a school yard when school is in session
  • enters or tries to enter a residence
  • wanders into a public gathering
  • kills livestock/pets and lingers at the site
  • stalks people and lingers at the site

Generally, bears want to avoid humans. Most encounters are not aggressive and attacks are rare.

Non-emergencies

Call the Bear Wise reporting line at 1-866-514-2327 (*between April 1-November 30) if a bear is:

  • roaming around, checking garbage cans
  • breaking into a shed where garbage or food is stored
  • in a tree
  • pulling down a bird feeder or knocking over a barbecue
  • moving through a backyard or field but is not lingering

* From Dec 1-March 31, please contact your local MNRF District office.

Lethal force (dispatch a bear)

It’s best to prevent encounters with bears before doing anything else.
But if you’ve exhausted all alternatives you have the right to protect your personal property and yourself. Any action you take must be:

  • carried out using the most humane means possible
  • done in a safe manner
  • in accordance with any applicable laws (e.g., discharging a firearm by-laws)

You do not need a hunting licence to use lethal force. But if you kill a black bear and do not intend to keep it, you must report it immediately to your local Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry office.

If you kill a black bear and want to keep the dead animal for personal use, you must register for a Notice of Possession with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

Killing a bear in self-defence must be an action of last resort.

May 28th, 2018 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DEEP RIVER, Ontario – Today Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and the Town of Deep River signed a Fire Services Agreement that will see CNL’s Fire Operations provide a significantly enhanced level of fire prevention, education and suppression services to the Town’s residents, businesses and visitors.

Under this new agreement, CNL Fire Operations will provide a Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief to the Town, together with a Fire Prevention Officer, CNL Officer firefighters and CNL firefighters to an annual maximum of 14,000 personnel hours.

Of significance, this agreement will see the Town move immediately to recruit volunteer firefighters to bolster personnel from CNL and Deep River toprovide the necessary resources to meet today’s standards for fire suppression services.  Deep River fire personnel will gain training credentials, qualifications and experience from CNL senior fire personnel.

“The overwhelming priority of this Council has always been to ensure the safety of residents, employees and businesses in Deep River. This agreement with CNL provides an effective and efficient fire prevention, education and suppression service, addressing decades-old challenges at a cost within the current budget.” said Deep River Mayor Joan Lougheed. “I would like to thank CNL President Mark Lesinski and the CNL team for making this long-term partnership possible”.

“CNL is pleased to work with the Town of Deep River to implement this partnership agreement. CNL places health and safety as a top priority in our operations, so too does this municipality, which is evident in its efforts to provide enhanced fire services for its residents and businesses,” said CNL President and CEO Mark Lesinski.

“CNL Fire Operations capabilities and experience has already made an impression in the Town during the time of the interim agreement,” said Reeve Glenn Doncaster. “Their level of training and professionalism will continue to be of significant benefit to the Town as we move forward to recruit volunteer firefighters along with existing firefighters, to establish a fully functional composite fire department in Deep River”.

Mayor Lougheed and Reeve Doncaster were united in their praise and gratitude to the men and women of the Town of Laurentian Hills Fire Department for their unwavering commitment to assist the Town of Deep River in times of need over the past number of decades and look forward to an even stronger relationship in the years ahead.

MEDIA ADVISORY                                                                                 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 27, 2018

WHERE:      DEEP RIVER AND LAURENTIAN HILLS

The closure of an EarlyON program for the children and parents in Deep River and Laurentian Hills is only temporary, according to the County of Renfrew. Previously called the Family Enrichment Network (FEN) Early Years Centre, the centre served the Deep River and Laurentian Hills community until this past spring.

The new EarlyON Child and Family Centres offer free programs to parents/caregivers and their children from birth to six years of age. These centres welcome all families to participate in quality programs that help strengthen adult-child relationships, support parent education, and foster healthy child development. Throughout the County of Renfrew there are a number of EarlyON programs operating and are considered a popular destination by families and caregivers.

“In January 2018 the County of Renfrew, through provincial legislation, was mandated to provide EarlyON programs in the County of Renfrew,” explained the County’s Director of Social Services Paul Moreau. “Through a resolution of County Council in September 2017 all six existing Early Years programs were contracted to transition into providing the new EarlyON programs.”

Moreau acknowledged that the transition to new mandates and programs, as directed by the province, was challenging for a number of centres and their governing bodies. FEN worked hard to make the adjustments but in the spring the board chose to end its operation, leaving a void in the Deep River and Laurentian Hills area.

“We acknowledged the dedication of the FEN board and its employees,” Mr. Moreau said. “We are determined to continue FEN’s efforts by trying to find an alternative agency to operate the centre for the children and parents in the Deep River and Laurentian Hills area.”

The County, in concurrence with the Board of Directors for FEN, is working towards finding an alternate local agency to operate an EarlyON program to ensure that the new centre can provide a sustainable and high quality program. The objective is to provide programming that meets the capacity and space requirements of the community and build on the previous work of FEN by the end of 2018. A Request for Proposal will be made public in the next coming weeks to allow existing not for profit Boards the opportunity to apply to operate an EarlyON program within the Deep River and Laurentian Hills Community.   

“Once an EarlyON program has been re-established, the County, in collaboration with the EarlyON program, will strive to ensure that the program hours and locations meet the needs of the community of Deep River and Laurentian Hills,” Mr. Moreau said.

The County is very interested in hearing from any community group or agency interested in taking a lead role in the reestablishment for this excellent program.

Judging will be done initially by a collection of local readers, then further selected by an impartial group. 

The names of the persons submitting the entries will have their name removed and given a number, so as to keep the writers anonymous to the judges. The three winners’ prizes will be sponsored by Burnstown Publishing.

Warden Jennifer Murphy commented, “Paul Moreau brings a breadth of experience and leadership qualities to this position.  I have had many opportunities to work with Mr. Moreau over the last several years both in his capacity as Director of Development and Property, and more recently in his role as Director of Social Services.  I have found Paul to be a valuable asset to the County of Renfrew and an outstanding leader; I am confident that he will excel in his new role as the CAO/Clerk.”

Mr. Hutton commended Mr. Moreau saying, “Paul brings a strong level of professionalism, dedication and leadership to this position, and I feel confident that he will continue to lead the staff of the County of Renfrew into the future in a manner that delivers the levels of service that residents of the county expect.  I wish him well in his new role.”

A Recruitment Committee Chaired by  County of Renfrew Warden Jennifer Murphy, and comprised of Chair of the Finance and Administration Committee Councillor Walter Stack, Vice-Chair of the Finance and Administration Committee Glenn Doncaster, and the three most recent past Wardens (Councillors, Peter Emon, Bob Sweet, Janice Visneskie Moore) was established to design a recruitment process.  A total of 55 individuals applied for the position, and the Recruitment Committee then interviewed the final 5 applicants before selecting Mr. Moreau.

Mr. Moreau has more than 10 years of municipal experience, including five years as Director of Development and Property between 2011 and 2016, and the last two years as the Director of Social Services for the County of Renfrew.  Prior to coming to the County of Renfrew, Mr. Moreau served as the District Manager with the Ministry of Natural Resources.  Mr. Moreau had this comment about his new role, “I am very pleased with the decision of County Council.  As the Chief Administrative Officer and Clerk I look forward to a productive relationship with Council, the Senior Leadership Team, County staff, and the Local Municipalities in continuing to deliver services to our community that make Renfrew County a great place to live, work and play.”

Every year, Deep River Summermusic is contacted by parents whose children are puzzled about which instrument to choose in our beginner programs.   To help with this decision, Summermusic will be hosting an “Instrument Petting Zoo”.  It will take place on Saturday March 24th from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the CE Centre, which is beside the Community Church on Deep River Road.  This free, drop-in event will be an opportunity for anyone (all ages – adults too!) to see, hear, touch, and try out a wide variety of orchestral and band instruments.  Did we mention that there is no charge to participate in the Instrument Petting Zoo?  Come to the CEC anytime between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday March 24th and bring a friend!

The Deep River Police Service offers a number of services to the citizens of Deep River:

  1. Vacant House Checks - When leaving for a weekend or longer, your insurance usually requires that someone be left to check on your residence. Simply drop by the station or call 613 584-3500 or 613 584-2000 Ext. 118 and leave the following information: your name, the address to be checked, when you will be away and expected date of return, the name of any key holder or person checking on your residence and any special details such as lights on timer etc.
  2. Criminal Record Checks - Many employers are requiring new employees to provide documentation reporting on their criminal record status. The same can be said of organizations utilizing volunteers. In response to this need, the Deep River Police Service completes and provides written documentation for employees and volunteers requiring this service. There is a $28.00 fee for employment purpose record checks. Volunteer record checks are free where the volunteer work is being done in the Town of Deep River.

Read the press release: http://www.cnl.ca/en/home/news-and-publications/news-releases/2017/cnl-announces-near-surface-disposal-facility-proje.aspx

Near Surface Disposal Facility Project – Update on the Status of the Environmental Assessment Process

Public Notice

The public comment period on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed Near Surface Disposal Facility (NSDF) Project closed on August 16, 2017. Comments from members of the public, Indigenous groups and non-governmental organizations on the draft EIS as well as a consolidated table of federal comments have been submitted to the project proponent, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), for action. The CNSC also identified a number of areas where additional information is required for both the final EIS, and other technical supporting documentation.

CNL is currently addressing all comments received, as well as the CNSC's requests for information. CNL has indicated that additional time is required to complete these deliverables. As a result, timelines for the final EIS, originally expected in January 2018, and the public hearing, tentatively planned for July 2018, will be delayed. A revised timeline for project deliverables will be made available to the public once finalized.

For more information on the timeline amendment, read CNL's news release.

For more information on the Near Surface Disposal Facility Project and the EA process, visit the CNSC and Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry websites.

Notice to residents of Deep River:

Some residents may have been experiencing an issue with discoloured water coming from their taps recently. The Town of Deep River and the Ontario Clean Water Agency (“OCWA” – operator of the town’s drinking water system) would like to assure residents that this discolouration is NOT a health and safety concern. The municipal water distribution system is tested regularly by OCWA and complies with provincial drinking water standards set out by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change.

Recognizing that this discolouration may cause unease for residents, the Town and OCWA are working together to find a solution, including making adjustments to the chemicals used in the water treatment process.

Water discolouration can usually be cleared by letting your cold water taps run.  If you continue to experience issues with discoloured water, please contact OCWA at 613-584-3141.  

Thank you.

Town of Deep River

See attached memo from Chief Shaw which will be included in the Fall/Winter 2017 Newsletter

Everyone is their own first line of defence in the face of an emergency

  1. The majority of incidents are preventable and manageable when proper precautions are undertaken
  2. The Fire Safety Message for 2017 is “Every Second Counts: Plan Two (2) Ways Out”
    • Every property (residential and commercial) should have its own unique fire escape plan
    • Chances of survival in the event of a fire are dramatically increased when those inside a building have a plan and know the plan
  3. Last year’s fire safety message was the idea of ensuring that there is a working smoke alarm on every floor of your house
  4. See below tips courtesy of the National Fire Protection Association

Safety messages about smoke alarms

Smoke alarms are a key part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.

  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Install alarms in the basement. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one sounds, they all sound.
  • Large homes may need extra smoke alarms.
  • It is best to use interconnected smoke alarms. When one smoke alarm sounds they all sound.
  • Test all smoke alarms at least once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarm is working.
  • There are two kinds of alarms. Ionization smoke alarms are quicker to warn about flaming fires. Photoelectric alarms are quicker to warn about smoldering fires. It is best to use of both types of alarms in the home.
  • A smoke alarm should be on the ceiling or high on a wall. Keep smoke alarms away from the kitchen to reduce false alarms. They should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from the stove.
  • People who are hard-of-hearing or deaf can use special alarms. These alarms have strobe lights and bed shakers.
  • Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
  • Smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan.

Deep River Fire Department

Reduced staffing/Hours

The latest round of interest arbitration between the Town and the Deep River Professional Firefighters Association concluded in June. The Town was unsuccessful in their efforts to achieve a reduction in full time staffing through attrition from the eight (8) mandated in the event the Town forms a composite Fire Department.  In addition there is a requirement to have a Captain on each platoon in a composite Department.  With recent retirements the Department finds itself with no Captain and none of the remaining Firefighters qualified or undertaking qualifications at this time.  While the Town explores its options and advertises for qualified Captain(s) there is reduced staffing that necessitated putting all remaining Firefighters on a shift covering Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm.  Outside those hours the Fire Hall is unstaffed and the Town is reliant on off duty staff, and mutual aid to respond in the event of an emergency.  This situation is temporary until Town Council approves a permanent structure and staffing plan for the Department and it is implemented.   In the interim there is an increase in response time after hours that all residents should be aware of. Appropriately this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is home fire escape planning.  Given our current situation, I urge all residents to follow the advice provided and plan and practice your home escape plan for yourself and your loved ones.

Stay safe!

R.A. (Rob) Shaw

Fire Chief

EVERY SECOND COUNTS! PLAN 2 WAYS OUT!

Practice your home fire escape plan during Fire Prevention Week

Town of Deep River- Fire Chief Rob Shaw is urging families in Deep River to practice their home fire escape plan as part of Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme of Fire Prevention Week, which runs from October 8-14, 2017, is “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!”

“Fire and smoke move faster than you,” said Chief Shaw.  “There’s no time to figure out how to escape your home AFTER a fire starts. Practice an escape plan BEFORE there’s a fire so you can get out safely.”

In a fire, you may have just seconds to safely escape your home. Be prepared in advance with these simple steps for home fire escape planning:

  • Assess the needs of everyone in your home
    Identify anyone who requires assistance to get out of the home safely, such as small children or older adults.
  • Make sure that you have working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas
    Make sure everyone in the home knows the sound of the smoke alarm.
  • Identify all possible exits (doors and windows ) and make sure they work
    Know two ways out of all areas, if possible.
  • Everyone must know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds
    Assign someone to help those who need assistance.
    Identify a safe meeting place outside.
    Call the fire department (911) from outside the home – from a neighbour’s home or a cell phone.
  • Practice your home fire escape plan at least twice a year
    Have everyone participate.
    Make changes to your plan if necessary.

Starting or Registering a New Business

Do I need to register my business and charge taxes?

You must register your business with the province if you:

  • Make more than $30,000 per year at the business (as you must also charge and remit HST);
  • Hire an employee; and/or
  • Import or export items into or from Canada

Do I need a permit or license to run my business?

On the municipal level, you are only required to register with the Town if you have a taxi or mobile food vendor business (such as a chip truck, etc.) Other types of businesses are not required to register, but you are invited to join our Business Directory!

On the provincial level, not all business types require permits or licenses, however some do. The best way to determine whether you need a permit or license is to use Canada Business Network’s search tool. The tool will produce a list of any federal and provincial requirements given your business location and industry.

Of particular concern is garlic mustard found near Lamure Beach.

<![CDATA[Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detectors are now Mandatory]]>http://www.deepriver.ca/departments/fire-department/carbon-monoxide-co-detectors-are-now-mandatory-9768.htmlhttp://www.deepriver.ca/departments/fire-department/carbon-monoxide-co-detectors-are-now-mandatory-9768.htmlFri, 19 May 2017 7:29:38 -0700Effective Oct. 15, 2014, Ontario has made carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all homes and other residential buildings.

Carbon monoxide alarms are required to be installed in all homes (buildings under 6 stories) as of April 15, 2015.

Carbon Monoxide 101

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, tasteless and odourless gas produced when fuels such as propane, gasoline, natural gas, heating oil or wood have insufficient air to burn completely. This can happen in any appliance or device that burns these fuels such as a stove, furnace, fireplace, hot water heater, vehicle engine, portable generator.

Exposure to CO can cause flu-like symptoms such as headaches, nausea and dizziness, as well as confusion, drowsiness, and loss of consciousness. In high concentrations, it can be fatal.

The Case for Change

More than 50 people die each year from CO poisoning in Canada, including an average of 11 people per year in Ontario (Parachute Canada statistics). Our government continues to work with its partners to improve safety from fire and CO for Ontarians.

CO detectors/alarms have been mandatory in new homes and other residential buildings since 2001 through the Ontario Building Code. While the Ontario Building Code applies to new construction and renovations, the Ontario Fire Code applies to existing buildings. Amendments to the Fire Code will establish retrofit requirements for CO detectors/alarms in existing homes, consistent with the Building Code's requirements for new buildings.

Where are they required to be installed?

Carbon monoxide detectors will now be required near all sleeping areas in residential homes and in the service rooms, and adjacent sleeping areas in multi-residential units. Carbon monoxide alarms can be hardwired, battery-operated or plugged into the wall.

Quick Facts

  • More than 50 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning in Canada, including 11 on average in Ontario.
  • Bill 77, an Act to Proclaim Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week and to amend the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997, received royal assent in December 2013.
  • The first Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week will take place November 1-8, 2014.

Bill 77 (Hawkins Gignac Act [Carbon Monoxide Safety], 2013)

Bill 77 (Hawkins Gignac Act [Carbon Monoxide Safety], 2013), amended the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997, to allow the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services to regulate the presence of unsafe levels of carbon monoxide and require the use of CO detectors/alarms. Specifically, the Ontario Fire Code, a regulation established under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997, may now be amended to include requirements to lessen the risk created by the presence of unsafe levels of CO.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

CO detectors/alarms and smoke detectors/alarms are two important safety features that help keep our families safe.

CO alarms range in price from approximately $26 to over $100 depending on whether they are hard-wired, battery operated or plug-in and whether they have additional features (i.e. battery back-up, digital display, etc.). The average mid-range plug-in/battery back-up model is between $35 and $40 per unit.

Landlords and home owners will be responsible for complying with the requirements under the Fire Code.

CO safety is a shared responsibility. Ontarians will be encouraged to learn about the risks associated with CO inhalation and install CO alarms as required by the new regulation.

Enforcement/Fines

Non-compliance with the regulations for installing a carbon monoxide alarm is a ticketable offence and under this process (a ticket) the fine is $235. If a Part 3 process is utilised the maximum fine is up to $5000.

Deep River Fire Department asks all homeowners and Landlords to comply with the new regulation for CO alarms and install them near all sleeping areas in residential homes and in the service rooms, and adjacent sleeping areas in multi-residential units.

If you require assistance and/or advice regarding your CO alarms please call us at 613.584.2000 ext 120.

Early warning is your best defence. Early warning will ensure you and your family are on the lawn alive when we arrive.

If you have an emergency call 9-1-1

Strategic Plan

Every service organisation should have a plan, one that will guide them in the delivery of the services for which they were established. The Deep River Fire Department is no different and we have been approved by Council to set out on the journey of acquiring a Strategic Plan for the next 5 years.

Pomax Consulting has been chosen to work with a local project team in the creation of our very own plan that will guide the delivery of fire and emergency services for the period 2015-2020. Public meetings and directed consultations with various stakeholders will take place during March. The final version of the Strategic Plan is slated to be reviewed and approved by Council in June of this year. Stay tuned to our website for more details in the coming months on this topic

.

Smoke alarms

Deep River Fire Department relies on all of our residents to partner with us regarding fire safety. Your firefighters want you and your family to be in your front yard when we arrive! The best way you can ensure you are able to do this is with early warning of a fire in your home. TEST your smoke alarms! Test them regularly - make sure they have power and that you know what they sound like. Select a meeting place and practice your home escape plan.

Join our winter Push the Button smoke alarm campaign and together with your children you can make a difference in your fire safety preparedness. Check out our section of the Town website and get involved with TVOKids and the Push the Button smoke alarm campaign from February 23 to March 8.

Yours in fire safety;

The ammendments will affect the way certain municipal properties are managed. In particular, starting January 1st, 2015, it will be illegal to smoke tobacco within 20 metres of municipally-owned children’s playgrounds (including splash/spray pads) and public sports fields and surfaces (including bleachers) such as baseball diamonds, soccer fields, outdoor rinks, basketball courts, and tennis courts, etc.

You can view the amendments (outlined in grey block lettering) by clicking O.Reg 48/06.

It’s a thrill for both competitive and recreational skiers. For those determined not to race, there’s the 1.5 km Participation Mass Start event for all ages from tots to grandparents.  And whether racer or volunteer, everyone benefits from the fresh air, beautiful forest, and camaraderie.

The Silver Spoon is part of the National Capital District race circuit, which attracts many keen skiers from clubs in the Ottawa area.

A delicious buffet  will be served at the Bear’s Den in the evening of January 28, followed by a special awards ceremony.

The play is sure to be a great time for a great cause - health care in the Ottawa Valley. It’s a brand-new musical comedy written by Stone Fence Theatre producer Ish Theilheimer and directed by Chantal Elie-Sernoskie. The play is touring the Ottawa Valley and raising money for the hospitals at each stop along the way. It celebrates Canada's health care system and takes a humorous look at aging Boomers coming to terms with mortality. The tour stops in Eganville on October 1 and 15, in Renfrew on October 21 and 22, in Barry’s Bay in October 29, in Deep River on November 12, in Pembroke on November 18 and 19, in Almonte on November 26, in Ottawa on January 20 and 21, and in Arnprior (date tbd). The tour as a whole has the potential to raise at least $25,000 for hospitals and health care. The Deep River and District Hospital Foundation is thrilled that Stone Fence Theatre has included Deep River in their tour and looks forward to support that this event will provide to our hospital. Tickets for the Deep River show are $29.00 each and are available from Stone Fence Theatre's website - www.stonefence.ca or from the box office - 613-628-6600 or, toll-free, 1-866-310-1004, or from Cahoon’s Pharmacy. http://www.stonefence.ca/

Making People's Lives Better by Enhancing Public Safety

The Deep River Fire Department is comprised of ten full-time firefighters available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The department offers numerous services to the citizens of the Town of Deep River including public fire & life safety education, auto extrication, fire suppression and fire prevention (enforcement) and inspection programs.

Only working smoke alarms can save your life!

Every home in Ontario must have a working smoke alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas. IT'S THE LAW!

Homeowners: It is the responsibility of homeowners to install and maintain smoke alarms on every storey of their home and outside sleeping areas. Better yet, install smoke alarms inside sleeping areas for early warning.

Landlords: It is the responsibility of landlords to ensure their rental properties comply with the law.

Tenants: If you are a tenant of a rental property and do not have the required number of smoke alarms, contact your landlord immediately. It is against the law for tenants to remove the batteries or tamper with the alarm in any way.

Fire Safety & Public Education Overview

The Deep River Fire Department in conjunction with the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) develops public education and media resources that you and your family can use to raise awareness of fire prevention and safety in our community.

Everyone has the responsibility to keep their families and homes safe from fire. The best ways to do this are to:

  • prevent fires from starting;
  • maintain working smoke alarms on every storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas to have as much time to safely escape as possible. Not only do smoke alarms save lives, they are required by law;
  • plan and practice a home fire escape plan so everyone in the home knows exactly what to do should the smoke alarms sound in an emergency; and
  • consider installing residential sprinklers when building a new home or doing extensive renovations.

Information and resources about how to keep your loved ones and valued possessions safe from fire are available at the various links on this page.

The Canadian Clock Museum

Located just off Highway 17 in the west end of town, Canada's only clock museum is focused on Canadian-made and Canadiana clocks from the early 1800's to the present time. Visitors receive a guided tour of more than four hundred examples, many of them in operation, plus period artifcats to enhance the experience of "going back in time".

Deep River Walking Tour

This 4km walk is in the heart of Deep River, starting at the sandy Lamure Beach, then enters cedar bush. It follows the bank of the Ottawa River to Centennial Rock with great views of the uninhabited and hilly Quebec side of the river. The walk goes to the Deep River Marina before retracing its way back to Lamure Beach.

Silver Spoon Cross Country Ski Trails

The Silver Spoon Trails are located east of Deep River on either side of Balmer Bay Road just past the hospital. Members have access to the 30 km of trails, 20 km of which are groomed and track-set.

Deep River Arena

The Deep River River arena is located on McElligot Drive and is home to the Deep River Minor Hockey Association and the Deep River Skating Club. Several hockey tournaments and skating events are held throughout the season.

For more information call the Recreation Department at 613 584-2000 Ext.103

Mount Martin

This 5km hiking trail up and down Mount Martin in Quebec, across from Deep River, offers fabulous birds-eye views over the Laurentian Hills, the Ottawa River and Valley. A canoe can be launched from Deep Rive to cross the Ottawa River to reach a beautiful sandy shore, in an uninhabited area, where the trail head is located. The steep rocky trail winds its way through the canopy of a mixed forest with large white pines to the top of Mount Martin, which is about 300 metres high.

Driftwood Provincial Park

There are many interlocking trail loops from 1km to 3.7 km long, in a forested location, skirting a bay with sandy beaches on the Ottawa River. Lookouts from high points or at the river's edge afford picturesque views across to the Laurentian Hills and to the mouth of the Dumoine River in Quebec. Day and campsite passes can be purchased at the park office (Tel: 613 586-2553 or 705 744-2276 ). Although the park's gate is closed for the winter, visitors may enter for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-county skiing.

The Barron Canyon

The Barron Canyon Trail is a 1.5 km long interpretative trail that passes through pine forest to the rim of a 100 m deep canyon, which is one of the most spectacular sights in Algonquin Park. The canyon was formed 10,000 years ago as raging water from melting glaciers made its way to the Champlain Sea. Today, the Barron River, accompanied by canoes, gently courses through the impressive canyon.

The Brent Crater Trail

This 2km look trail is situated in the northeast corner of Algonquin Park. It starts at an observation tower that overlooks the 4 km wide crater made by a meteor about 450 million years ago. The well maintained footpath descends the eroded rim of the crater and makes its way to Tecumseh Lake and back up to the crater edge. Numbered posts designate geological features of the meteorite's explosive impact.

High Falls

HIgh Falls is a small waterchute, perfect for a picnic and a favourite spot in Algonquin Park for a swim to cool off in the heat of summer. This well marked trail through mixed forest, is a pleasant and direct walk to the falls. For a longer walking trip to High Falls, use the Eastern Pines Backpacking Trails that begin from Achray.

Specifically, DRFD carries an adult (0.3 mg of epinephrine) and a junior (0.15 mg of epinephrine) version of the lifesaving unit.

The EpiPen® Auto-Injector is a disposable, pre-filled automatic injection device that administers epinephrine in the event of a severe allergic reaction. EpiPen® contains epinephrine, a medication that can help decrease the body’s allergic reaction by:

  • Relaxing the muscles in your airways to make breathing easier
  • Helping to reverse the rapid and dangerous decrease in blood pressure
  • Relaxing the muscles in the stomach, intestines and bladder

After using EpiPen®, the patient must seek immediate medical attention or go to the emergency room. For the next 48 hours, they must stay close to a healthcare facility or be able to call 911.

Deep River Fire Department

In case of an emergency call 9-1-1

A Message from the Fire Chief

It is an honour to bring greetings to you on behalf of the Deep River Fire Department during Fire Prevention month. We are proud to be members of your fire service and you have our professional commitment to provide everyone with our best efforts to keep you and your family safe from fire.

We are committed to participating in Ontario’s three lines of defense against the ravages of fire in Deep River:

1 - Public Fire & Life Safety Education;

2 - Fire Prevention and Fire Code Enforcement; and of course

3 – Firefighting and emergency medical activities.

We encourage you and your family to join our family of firefighters and become full partners in our collective efforts to be the most fire safe community in Ontario. We staff your fire station on a 24 hour/7 day basis and with the assistance of our neighbours we stand ready to respond to any 9-1-1 call for help.

This year’s fire prevention slogan is:

“Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives – Test Yours Every Month”

We seek your help by ensuring that you get early warning of a fire in your home or business. Make sure you have working smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside each sleeping area. And we ask that you test them right now and every month. Make a home escape plan and practise how to get out when you hear your smoke alarms. Call 9-1-1 from outside your home. Get out and stay out!

When your smoke or Carbon Monoxide alarm sounds, we need you and your family t
