Rural Addressing Guidelines

Finding Residents Quickly and Accurately

Rural addressing is a standardized system of identifying and locating rural properties. In 2002, Lac Ste. Anne County began putting into effect a municipal rural addressing system for use by emergency service providers, and for other purposes such as providing directions for delivery services.

Bylaw 15-2002 requires that all parcels of land supporting residential, commercial and industrial development with a primary access onto a developed public road right-of-way be assigned an address by Lac Ste. Anne County and such address must be posted, with the exception of oil and gas industry development which is regulated by the AEUB.

The cost of a municipal rural addressing sign and placement for residential, commercial and industrial development taking place after June 1st, 2003, shall be the responsibility of the property owner, occupant, or developer. Such signage shall be erected within three (3) months after receipt of an approved development permit from the Development Officer. A property owner, occupant , or developer may order sign(s) through Lac Ste. Anne County, from another supplier, or make their own as long as the sign(s) conform(s) to the specifications set out in the County's rural addressing guidelines.

What is your Rural Address?

Please contact the County office to obtain your rural address. You should have the following information available: legal land description; lot, block, plan, if applicable; and the measurement to your approach from the nearest road junction (Rge Rd, Twp Rd, or Hwy). An easy way is to use your vehicle odometer to make the measurement.
