License of Occupation


When it is required, but not possible, to purchase Shore Road Allowance or Road Allowance abutting your property (for example, if a road is running through it) owners can apply for a License of Occupation, which grants them exclusive rights to the land, not ownership.  

The application fee is $350.00 and needs to be renewed every year (the renewal rate is $200.00 annually).  Also, the applicant will need to supply a Certificate of Insurance for $2 million showing the Township of Georgian Bay as co-insured.  This is supplied when / if the application is approved by Council.

The application form can be found here.
