PREVENTIVE MEASURES IN FORCE

ESSENTIAL SERVICES ARE MAINTAINED

Our teams continue to ensure essential municipal services, such as the collection of garbage and recycling, roadwork and access to drinking water. Details about collection services: beaconsfield.ca/en/collection-calendar

 

City Hall - Open for business – By appointment only

Starting Thursday, March 19 at noon

 

The City of Beaconsfield wishes to inform you that City Hall will now be accessible to the public by appointment only until further notice, as a preventive measure in the context of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

The Public Works building and the drop-off site are now closed

 

Please use our online services listed below or contact 514 428-4400.

 

Accepted methods of payment: cheque and debit. 

 

Halt of non-essential services extended until May 4

 

The Government of Québec has announced that non-essential businesses will remain closed until May 4. This measure is intended, among others, for companies offering landscaping, residential maintenance services (e.g. gutters, chimney, window cleaning), pruning and felling of trees and construction services.

Non-essential businesses who do not respect governmental orders are liable to the fines provided by law. 

Some collections are not considered essential services, such as the branch collection. A revised collection schedule will be provided once this service is authorized by the government.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING FOR THE ENTIRE POPULATION

At the present time, everyone is asked to make an effort to distance themselves from others. It means avoiding all means of socialization with other people.

Those who can work from home are encouraged to do so, and if you must take public transit, try to do so outside of rush hours. If you have to go outside, make sure to follow the proper hygiene measures (frequent hand washes, avoid touching your face, coughing in your elbow) and maintain a distance of at least two meters (6 feet) with other individuals to minimize the chances of catching or spreading a virus.

 

Please note that in the context of COVID-19, people refusing to comply with the rules of distancing and not gathering in public spaces, such as parks, could be fined between $1,000 and $6,000 by the SPVM.

 

Beaconsfield implements a Social Distancing Squad

Starting April 3

To support the public health self-isolation and social distancing guidelines, the City has set up a mobile squad which will patrol the streets in areas known to be popular gathering locations. Equipped with loudspeakers, the vehicles will broadcast reminders of the 2-meter distance rule to walkers, joggers and cyclists.
