over Township roads, it requires written notification from the
contractor to the municipality at least one week prior to transport.
Notification is to include the date, time, route to be used and size and
type of load. The contractor is responsible for contacting any
utilities that may be involved – e.g. Hydro. The contractor is also
responsible for any damages to Township roads or signs that occur during
A permit is not required for Township
roads, however, contractors should contact MTO, CN and the County of
Simcoe if transporting over Provincial or County roads. Please refer to
the Permits and Fees page of the Simcoe County website.
