Council purchased the Town of Canora 2020-2021 general and liability insurance policy at the quoted rate of $55,450 with SGI – Community Insurance named as the agent of record.  

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, council extended the deadline for Roger Sabiston to obtain his Labourer II qualifications by 60 days.

After passing a resolution on April 7, a bylaw to amend the zoning bylaw was introduced and read a first time. The bylaw has been amended to read: “In a residential district, an accessory building consisting of a tarp or fabric-covered structure shall have a maximum area of 27.87 square metres (300 sq. ft.)”

The amendment will be advertised and then council will hold a public hearing before it can be adopted.
