The majority of our neighbours are considerate when it comes to hosting parties, lighting bonfires, letting off fireworks, maintaining their septic systems in good working order, etc., but occasionally there is one who appears to have no concern for the environment or his neighbours' right to enjoy a good night's sleep. Should you encounter such an inconsiderate individual just pick up the phone and call the Township Office at 705-389-2842, selecting extension 8.
Leave a message including the time of your call, your name, your full address and contact number, type of concern and its location/address. Your information is then electronically relayed to the on duty unit who will call you back promptly. Joice and his team of officers are on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
Enforcement sectors include, but are not limited to, the following: Parking, Noise Issues/Complaints, Clean Yards Standards, Trailer Occupancy Use, Waste Management, ATV/ Trail Bikes, Fire Safety, and other applicable bylaws.

West Parry Sound Health Centre NON-Urgent Care Clinic 7 Days a Week through the Summer
Every summer from the July long weekend until the end of August, your local Emergency Department at the West Parry Sound Health Centre operates a NON-Urgent Care Clinic 7 days a week from 12 PM to 4 PM.
This clinic offers patient care outside of Emergency Care (ER care is 24 hours 7 days a week). This means if you have the sniffles, a cold that won't go away, a splinter you can't remove, a fishhook from trying to catch the big one, need a prescription renewed, have an earache, sore throat, rash, leg or arm pain/injury, skin infection, infected bug bite or one of the various health irritants that get in the way of a terrific day on the water, you can come to ER during the NON-Urgent clinic hours (12 PM to 4 PM) and be seen quickly. The process is a 'walk-in' and you present at the Triage Desk in ER. The Registered Nurse will assess you and determine if you can be seen in the NON-urgent care clinic and then directs you through. But as in any visit to a nursing station, if you have something bigger going on you are directed to ER for a more thorough examination. Hundreds of patients attend through the Non-Urgent Care Clinic annually but still others don't know about this service. From 12 pm to 4 pm July Long Weekend to the end of August the NON-Urgent Care Clinic is offered for your good health and convenience.
