Emergency Preparedness: Be Ready for Anything

Natural disasters may be beyond our control, but there are ways to reduce the risk and the impact of whatever emergency we might face - whether natural or human-induced.

Emergency Preparedness Week (May 2-8, 2021) encourages Canadians to take concrete actions to be better prepared to protect themselves and their families during emergencies. This special week is a national effort of provincial and territorial emergency management organizations, and Public Safety Canada.

By taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies – anytime, anywhere. It is important to:

  • Know the risks – Although the consequences of disasters can be similar, knowing the risks specific to our community and our region can help you better prepare.
  • Make a plan – It will help you and your family know what to do
  • Get an emergency kit – During an emergency, we will all need some basic supplies. We may need to get by without power or tap water. Be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in an emergency.

Visit www.getprepared.ca for more resources to help you and your family prepare for all types of emergencies.

This year, the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to have unprecedented impact on Canadians. While governments at all levels are working hard to keep Canada safe; now, more than ever, we understand that we all have a role to play in emergency preparedness. You can help to protect yourself, and others, against COVID-19 by staying informed. We encourage all Canadians visit Canada.ca/coronavirus for the latest information on the response to COVID-19 and more tips on how to continue to help prevent the spread.

This week, take concrete actions to be better prepared. Please do your part! Experience has shown that individual preparedness goes a long way to help people cope better - both during and after a major disaster. Get an emergency kit now - it can make a world of difference.

Why Should I Grasscycle?

To have a healthy lawn and environment!

  • When you grasscycle, you return nutrients to the soil, making your lawn healthy and fertile.  That way you won’t need to add synthetic fertilizers that pollute by leaching chemicals into sewer systems, lakes and streams.  Chemical fertilizers can burn your lawn.
  • Transporting grassclippings to the landfill produces air pollution from fuel consumption.
  • If the grassclippings end up in the landfill the clippings will breaks down anaerobically, producing methane gas which is 21 times more harmful than carbon dioxide as a contributor to climate change.

Bagging grass clippings produces waste that needs to be dealt with and is heavy to haul. Grasscycling can help reduce the mess and strain, and actually improves your turf. What is grasscycling? You’re probably already doing it and just didn’t know. Essentially, it is “mow and go,” and is not only for the lazy gardener but has a host of other benefits. Let’s go over grasscycling information so you can avoid common problems.

What is Grasscycling?

Mowing the lawn doesn’t have to be such a chore if you know how to grasscycle. Even if you don’t have a mulching mower you can grasscycle. The key is in how and when you mow so you can prevent thatch buildup , unsightly grass debris and the clippings are returned to the earth quickly.

Your grass clippings can be a precious resource rather than a pain in the neck to bag and remove. The idea behind the practice is to let clippings fall where they do so they can release nitrogen, and reduce the need for watering, which decreases the incidence of fungal disease like rust and leaf spot.

Grasscycling does not contribute to thatch build up and saves you time. As the clippings break down, they fertilize the lawn, minimizing the need for excess nutrients. Clippings can provide 15 to 20 percent of a lawn’s food needs. This makes for a healthier turf that is thick and leaves no room for pesky weeds.

 Quick Tips about Grasscycling

One of the more important grasscycling tips is to remove no more than 1/3 of each blade. The best length is 2 to 2 ½ inches. Grasscycling information recommends mowing every 5 to 7 days to produce clippings that compost into the lawn quickly.

Try to mow when grass blades are dry. This enhances your mower’s ability to chop the leaves, causes less stress to the grass, and prevents clumps. Avoid scalping the lawn and mow at the correct height for your grass species. In summer, grass should be left a little longer to avoid moisture stress.

If it has been too wet to mow frequently, run over the long clippings an extra time and rake them into the root zone of the lawn. Blow or sweep clippings off inorganic surfaces like sidewalks to avoid them washing into waterways.

Serving Our Community

COVID-19 UPDATE

The main concern of the Deep River Police Service is public safety.  We want to ensure that members of the community are not putting others in danger.  If a police officer or other provincial offences officer has reason to suspect that you are participating in an organized public event or social gathering, they may require you to provide information to ensure you are complying with restrictions.  The Deep River Police Service will not be conducting random stops of pedestrians or drivers to enforce the stay-at-home order.  The DRPS will continue to focus on the 4 E's in response to the pandemic regulations – engaging, explaining, educating, and enforcing. 

Dean Duchrow – Chief of Police

RECENT STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARATION – COVID-19

  • On January 14, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. the Government of Ontario issued a new Stay at Home Order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA)

  • This order is expected to remain in effect until February 11, 2021, but could be extended

  • The Deep River Police Service supports all measures necessary to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community and will continue to work with local public health, municipal and regional officials to ensure compliance

  • We recognize that this is a stressful time, with many people feeling a sense of uncertainty and instability within our community. We also recognize that there may be confusion over rules and legislation

  • While provincial offences officers, including police officers, have enforcement rights under the new EMCPA order, we will continue to focus on the 4 Es – Engage (with the individuals), Explain (why we are there), Educate (on the rules and regulations), and Enforce (as a last resort)

  • Enforcement will be aimed at those individuals who overtly put others in danger in our community

  • In the vast majority of cases, when we receive a complaint or respond to a call where individuals are in violation, they have willingly complied after being educated. We expect this to remain the same moving forward and we thank those citizens who are doing their part

  • Our officers will not be conducting random vehicle or individual stops. Our initiatives will be both complaint-driven and proactive, with the goal of gaining compliance. Those that refuse to comply will receive the appropriate penalty

  • We are asking people to comply for the well-being of everyone in our community and to ensure the capacity of our health care

  • In relation to the new EMCPA order, individuals can either be:

  • Issued a ticket for a set fine amount established by the Chief Justice or be served with a summons (Part I)

  • Or have an information laid (Part III), where the court would impose a penalty upon conviction – subject to the maximum penalty of a fine or not more than $100,000 and not more than one year in jail.

  • Fines include:

  • Fail to Comply with an order: $750
  • Obstruct any Person Exercising a Power in Accordance with an Order: $1,000
  • Obstruct any Person Performing a Duty in Accordance with an Order: $1,000

  • The Province of Ontario, specifically the Ministry of Labour, may also allocate additional inspection and compliance resources to those areas currently in the gray zone

  • The Deep River Police Service has procedures in place to deal with internal situations of occupational exposure to communicable diseases and these policies are reviewed regularly so that we can respond to specific challenges such as COVID-19

  • Members of our service will continue to perform their duties professionally and comply with the Ontario Human Rights Code or Canadian Charter of Rights, as well as all applicable regulations in Ontario’s Police Services Act

  • We remain committed to providing essential services throughout the community during this State of Emergency

Message From The Chief of Police

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all aspects of our lives and how we do business.

We at the Deep River Police Service are focused on how to best protect, serve and support our members and the members of our community.

I want to personally assure you that continuity of service will remain fully operational. To prevent the spread and potential exposure we have instigated new protocols relating to how we do business. Walk-in traffic at the Police Station will remain restricted to a case-by-case basis.

We encourage those that need to speak to police, do so by phone, and those requiring personal interaction with police, call to request at our non-emergency number (613-584-3500). In emergent situations, standard use of 911 still applies. At this time, criminal record checks are still reserved for essential workers only.

These measures are intended to protect the health and well-being of members of our police service and the community. Should you have any question about COVID-19, please contact the Renfrew County Health Department. By adhering to present measures, we can all reduce the potential of spreading this virus. On behalf of the Deep River Police Service, please know that our thoughts are with all those affected.

Thank you,
Dean Duchrow - Chief of Police

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 a 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.

Joint statement from AECL, CNL & the Town of Deep River

Chalk River, ON – April 05, 2021 – Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and the Town of Deep River issued the following joint statement today:

In response to the ongoing revitalization of the Chalk River Laboratories campus, including the decommissioning of aging infrastructure and new capital investments, AECL, CNL and the Town of Deep River have agreed to an examination of recent assessments of property value for some of the buildings at the AECL-owned site.

The objective of this evaluation is to provide for a fair valuation of new and renovated facilities at the Chalk River Laboratories’ facilities, as the foundation for updating the payment in lieu of property taxes. The three parties will work together with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation to review assessments.

“As the company contracted to operate AECL’s Chalk River Laboratories campus, CNL is pleased to participate in this process and will work collaboratively to support this review,” commented Joe McBrearty. “All three parties recognize just how important it is that these payments reflect the proper value of the site, and I’m pleased that we were able to proactively come to an agreed path forward on this assessment.”

“AECL is making significant investments in the Chalk River Laboratories to transform it into a modern, world-class nuclear science and technology campus.” Fred Dermarkar added, “As we modernize our facilities, it is important that this be reflected in our contributions to the local communities through payments in lieu of taxes. We are proud of our history in this strong and vibrant local community, and want to see this continue for decades to come.

“On behalf of the Town of Deep River, I want to express our appreciation to AECL and CNL for the open, professional and constructive dialogue they have engaged in with us.  As a conscientious corporate citizen, they volunteered to have the recent new construction at Chalk River Laboratories reassessed to ensure fairness in taxation, despite the fact that they are not legislatively obliged to do so.  AECL, CNL and CNEA are exceptional members of our community and have partnered with us on many recent initiatives including: fire services, water and improvements to internet.  We are fortunate to have them as part of our town.” Sue D’Eon, Mayor

Avril 05, 2021 

Déclaration commune d’EACL, des LNC et de la ville de Deep River

Chalk River (Ontario) – 05 avril 2021 – Énergie atomique du Canada limitée (EACL), les Laboratoires Nucléaires Canadiens (LNC) et la ville de Deep River ont publié aujourd’hui la déclaration suivante :

Étant donné que les laboratoires de Chalk River sont en cours de revitalisation, ce qui comprend la mise hors services de l’infrastructure vieillissante et l’investissement de nouveaux capitaux, EACL, les LNC et la ville de Deep River ont décidé d’un commun accord de réévaluer la valeur de certains bâtiments situés sur les propriétés d’EACL.

L’objectif est de produire une évaluation juste des nouvelles installations et des installations rénovées aux laboratoires de Chalk River, ce qui permettra ensuite d’ajuster en conséquence les paiements tenant lieu d’impôt foncier. Les trois parties vont collaborer avec la Société d’évaluation foncière des municipalités.

"En tant qu’exploitants contractuels des laboratoires d’EACL à Chalk River, les LNC sont heureux de participer à ce processus et comptent bien collaborer à la réévaluation ", a précisé Joe McBrearty. "Les trois parties sont d’avis qu’il faut vraiment mener cet exercice pour que les paiements tiennent compte de la vraie valeur du site. Je suis content que l’on ait pu s’entendre de façon proactive sur la voie à suivre pour cette réévaluation."

"EACL effectue des investissements importants pour transformer les laboratoires de Chalk River en un centre de sciences et technologies nucléaires moderne et de renommée internationale. "Fred Dermarkar a ajouté : "Comme nous modernisons nos installations, notre nouvelle valeur doit se refléter dans nos contributions tenant lieu d’impôt foncier. Nous sommes fiers de la place que nous occupons dans l’histoire de la collectivité locale, qui est énergique et dynamique, et nous voulons que cela se poursuive dans les prochaines décennies."

"Au nom de la ville de Deep River, je souhaite exprimer ma gratitude à EACL et aux LNC pour le dialogue ouvert, professionnel et constructif qu’ils ont eu avec nous. En tant que citoyens consciencieux, ils ont eux-mêmes demandé à ce que les nouvelles installations des laboratoires de Chalk River soient réévaluées pour que la taxation soit équitable, même s’ils ne sont pas obligés de le faire d’un point de vue légal. EACL, les LNC et L’ANEC sont des membres exceptionnels de notre collectivité et ils ont été nos partenaires dans de nombreuses initiatives menées dernièrement, par exemple en ce qui concerne les services d’incendie, l’eau et Internet. Nous sommes chanceux de les avoir dans notre ville ", a affirmé la mairesse Sue D’Eon.

<![CDATA[Garbage and Recycling]]>http://www.deepriver.ca/departments/public-works/garbage-and-recycling/http://www.deepriver.ca/departments/public-works/garbage-and-recycling/Fri, 26 Mar 2021 1:00:23 -0700

Holiday Garbage and Recycling Collection

Please ensure your waste is out at the curb no later than 7:00 AM.

Garbage and recycling pick up will be collected as scheduled on Holidays. The only exception being Christmas and New Years all items will be picked up the following day.  

Important notes regarding garbage and recycling pickup

1. As of March 1st, 2021, the Town of Deep River will no longer accept plastic bags in recycling, this includes a “bag of bags”.  The reason for this is that these bags are no longer recycled. They are currently stockpiled and then taken to the landfill by the recycle collection depot. The majority of the municipalities in our area have already implemented this measure and recently the recycling from Deep River has been considered contaminated due to the number of bags. Unfortunately, the volatility of the recycling industry no longer provides for a business case to recycle these bags. We ask that you please do your part by using re-usable bags wherever possible to reduce the negative impacts, both environmental and financial that plastic bags cost.

2. Garbage and Recycling will be picked up on the same day for both residents and businesses according to the street schedule below. 

3. Both Garbage and Recycling are required to be put out at the curb (end of the driveway).

4. Recycling will alternate pickup one week fires (cardboard, paper) and the other week containers (plastic and glass).

5. Please ensure all items are placed at the curb no later then 7:00 am on your scheduled pick up day.

6. Ensure your waste meets size and weight requirements (Maximum of 50 LBS - container size maximum of 83 L).

7. Stryrofoam is NOT recyclable.

2021-2022 Recycling  Calendar 

Garbage and Recycling - Street Schedule

IC&I and Multi-Residential Recycling Schedule

Tips for Recycling

Fiber Recycling (Cardboard, paper, newspaper ect.):

Flatten and tie in bundles no larger than 2’x2’x8" (60cm x 60cm x 20cm), place beside the Blue Box.

Pizza Boxes: Please remove all food residue from pizza boxes.

Boxboard: Flatten and ensure it is clean and void of food products. Please do not include plastic or wax paper liners, plastic handles, straws or metal trim. Place inside or beside the Blue Box. If mixed with cardboard will not be picked up.

Containers (glass jars, plastic ect.):

All containers and lids should be clean. Please remove lids and place both items loose inside the Blue Box.

Plastic Bottles: Plastic bottles typically include pop bottles, squeezable ketchup, jam, syrup, salad dressing and barbecue sauce bottles. They will have one of the following symbols on the bottom : 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7.

      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?

Staff will work closely with the collection contractor to facilitate a smooth transition to ensure compliance with the bag limits. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Public Works Department at (613) 584-2000.

When will my recycling and waste be collected?

The collection schedule will not change. Please see the waste and recycling collection calendar (link above)

Province Expands Eligibility for Main Street Relief Grant

February 17, 2021

The Ontario government is expanding the number of small businesses that can apply for the Main Street Relief Grant to help offset the costs of purchasing personal protective equipment (PPE) to cautiously and gradually reopen in parts of the province. Small businesses with 2 to 19 employees in all eligible sectors - expanded from 2-9 employees - including those in the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector, can now apply for up to $1,000 in financial support. The expansion is being made as more parts of the province enter the strengthened COVID-19 Response Framework, which allows for the gradual and safe reopening of in-store shopping at non-essential retail stores.

"This funding will help even more main street businesses stay safe, keep people employed, and continue contributing to our communities," said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. "By expanding the accessibility to the Main Street Relief Grant our government will provide up to 60,000 small businesses with support to help them cover the cost of PPE and protective supplies. We continue to encourage businesses to apply and learn more at ontario.ca/COVIDsupport."

This one-time grant reimburses main street businesses for up to $1,000 in PPE costs incurred since March 17, 2020. Eligible businesses for the Main Street Relief Grant now include those with 2 to 19 employees in the following sectors:

  • retail trade;
  • accommodation and food services;
  • repair and maintenance;
  • personal and laundry services;
  • gyms and yoga studios; and
  • arts, entertainment, and recreation.

"Expanding eligible sectors for the PPE grant that have been significantly affected by COVID-19 is another way we can support our small business community," said Prabmeet Sarkaria, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction. "These businesses often require frequent, in-person contact with coworkers and they have the least space to accommodate physical distancing. They need a steady supply of PPE to function in a sustainable way."

The grant can be used to help cover the costs of a variety of PPE, including installing plexiglass or purchasing gloves and masks. Eligible businesses can apply for this grant and other COVID-19 financial supports - like the Ontario Small Business Support Grant and property tax or energy cost rebates - through a simple online application.

"Ontario's heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries were hit first, hardest, and will take the longest to recover post-pandemic," said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. "Expanding eligibility of the Main Street Relief Grant to include more business-owners within these sectors will cover added costs and help us explore all that our province has to offer when it's safe to do so."   

"We thank the Ontario government for acting on our recommendations to increase access to the PPE grant by adding sectors and increasing the employee threshold," said Julie Kwiecinski, Director of Provincial Affairs for Ontario at the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. "PPE funding is especially critical now, as small businesses safely reopen to in-store customers. We look forward to continuing our work with government to further improve this important program."

Small businesses can visit ontario.ca/smallbusiness to learn about the many supports available to them. These include resources to find Ontario-made PPE through the Workplace PPE Supplier Directory, tools to build or expand their online presence through Digital Main Street, tailored local support through the Small Business COVID-19 Recovery Network, and free financial advice. 

Quick Facts

  • The Workplace PPE Supplier Directory provides businesses with information on personal protective equipment (PPE) suppliers.
  • The government has opened applications for the new Ontario Small Business Support Grant. The grant provides a minimum of $10,000 to a maximum of $20,000 to eligible small businesses that have had to restrict their operations due to the Provincewide Shutdown.
  • The government launched the $50-million Ontario Together Fund to help businesses retool their operations to produce PPE and develop technology-driven solutions and services for businesses to reopen safely.
  • Businesses and individuals looking to help in the fight against COVID-19 can submit their proposals through the Ontario Together portal.
  • The Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters' Ontario Made program is helping the province's manufacturing base regain and recover revenues lost due to COVID-19 by encouraging manufacturers and producers to register and promote their products on the SupportOntarioMade.ca site and use the Ontario Made logo.

Making People's Lives Better by Enhancing Public Safety

The Deep River Fire Department is 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.

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.

This is your chance to try out several instruments, all at one stop! Pick up your Passport when you arrive, and as you visit each station – there will be one each for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, recorder, violin, cello, trumpet, trombone, and euphonium – you will get a sticker beside each instrument on your Passport. Most of our Summermusic 2020 faculty will be at the Zoo to help you out. It’s a great time to meet the friendly and knowledgeable staff who will be teaching those instruments at Summermusic camp. Of course, you don’t have to be registering for music camp to join in.  Anyone is most welcome to explore the various instruments: adults, too! There will be lots to see and hear, and lots of fun for all ages. At Summermusic, we are always keen to encourage any musical interest, and the Musical Instrument Petting Zoo is a great place to start. Bring your friends, bring your grandparents, and tell your neighbours to come, too.  The Musical Instrument Petting Zoo is open to all, and is completely free!

'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.'

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,

Pembroke, ON: Enterprise Renfrew County is recruiting student entrepreneurs who have a great business idea and want to start their own business this summer!  Youth entrepreneurs are encouraged to plan ahead and reach out to Enterprise Renfrew County (ERC) to learn about the Summer Company Program and begin developing their business plan now.  Summer Company is funded by the Government of Ontario to enable young people to start a business, create their own summer job and to follow their entrepreneurial dreams with funding support of up to $3,000.

The program is available to Ontario students between the ages of 15 and 29, to start and operate their own business.  Successful applicants will receive up to $1,500 to kick-start their business by helping cover start-up costs and, upon successful completion of the program; they will receive another award of up to $1,500.

ERC Business Consultant, Colleen Sadler, says; “Summer Company is an incredible way for students to explore what it takes to be an entrepreneur.” 

ERC staff will assist young entrepreneurs to develop their business concepts and/or explore examples of past Summer Company business types from across the Province of Ontario for business ideas.

By participating in the program, participants will receive business training, mentoring and assistance from local business leaders that will support them in the day-to-day operation of their enterprise.

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.

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.

Pembroke Public Library is pleased to announce that beginning on October 15th 2018, there will be a Stories from the Valley short story contest.

 

This short story contest is open to all adults (18 or older) of Renfrew county and is looking at nonfiction stories of 1000-1500 words.

 

The theme is ‘Memories of the Valley” and stories should show the unique lives, events and characters that make up the Ottawa Valley.

 

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.

 

Entries can begin to be submitted by the 15th October with the last date to submit on the 15th December 2018. Submissions will have a small fee of $10 with their short story.

 

Part of the fee will be used to publish the top 40 stories and the cost of administration.

 

The entire Rules and Regulations for the Pembroke Public Library Short Story Contest are available at:

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.”

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!

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
