The Association has prepared a brochure to give you tips on building a fence. If you would like to print the brochure, you may print it at home or at a professional printer.

Fences serve many functions. They can be constructed for security reasons, pet or child confinement, hazard control, by-law requirements and agricultural uses. Or, fences can be simply an architectural or aesthetic improvement to your property. 

Fences are most often used to mark the boundaries of a property. Whenever fences are located on property boundaries they must be located properly to minimize the chance of causing legal issues that may be expensive to resolve.
