Notice to Residents and Property Owners Regarding Noxious Weeds

Published on 21 June 2019

Under the Weed Control Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter W.5 Section 3, 13, 16 and 23, you are requested to destroy all noxious weeds on your property.

The main purpose of the Weed Control Act, is to reduce the impact of noxious weeds on the industries of agriculture and horticulture.  Primarily this act applies to agricultural and horticultural lands that generate income or other benefits to agriculture; this excludes lawns, gardens and private areas for personal enjoyment and leisure.

Common Noxious Weeds in our area include Wild Parsnip, Wild Chervil, Ragweed and Poison Ivy.

All properties within the Township of South Stormont are hereby requested to be in compliance with the Weed Control Act by the 26th day of June, 2019 and throughout the season.

We appreciate the tremendous efforts of residents who maintain and voluntarily control weeds and grass along their respective driveways and roadsides.
