Street Lights
Village Staff make every effort to check for burnt-out street lights and report them to NB Power.  However, if you notice any that are out or flickering, please contact the Village Office and advise of the exact pole location.

Civic Numbers
The Village Office Staff is responsible to assign civic numbers to new homes being erected in Village limits.  These numbers must be assigned using 911 standards.  Once assigned, 911 is advised; they in turn enter in their system and notify Canada Post who assigns a postal code.  This process can take weeks – so if you require a civic number, please call the Village Office as soon as possible.  We need to know the lot location, PID #, location of the house on the lot and location of the driveway.

Building Permits
Building permits are required for any construction and renovations and are issued by the Southeast Regional Service Commission 506-382-5386 . Applications are available at the Village Office or by visiting:
