Campground Licensing By-Law

The Township is considering introducing a Licensing By-Law to regulate Tourist Campgrounds in the Township of Rideau Lakes. A Licensing By-law is a tool under the Municipal Act that grants municipalities with the ability to require licenses for a business, conduct ongoing monitoring of their operations, and include conditions that must be followed with the issued license. For campgrounds, this tool can be used to gather information about how these businesses are structured and where essential features, like sanitation facilities, water services, and waste management, are located. This type of by-law grants the Township the ability to monitor property changes over time and address operating dates, while providing a mechanism to ensure that other by-laws are adhered to as well.

The Township is eager to hear your opinions and suggestions on the proposed components of a Campground Licensing By-Law. The Township understands that consultation with the public, and specifically with campground operators, is a crucial aspect to the successful implementation of this by-law.
