Civic Addressing

Civic Addressing refers to the blue and white number sign in front of your property.

These signs were installed for everyone's benefit.  Please ensure they are always visible from the road.  (Don't let grass or snow build up to cover these signs).  Emergency Service Vehicles (Ambulance, Fire, Police) are able to find your residence much easier because of this numbering system.  If a sign is missing or vandalized it could cause an emergency service vehicle to have a delayed response.

Have you ever wondered how this numbering system works?

If a road runs east and west - it is called a "Line".  Example - Talbot Line
If a road runs north and south - it is called a "Road".  Example - Imperial Road
If there is a private road - it is called a "Drive".  Example - Lakeview Drive
This rule is for Malahide Township only - for certain roads that are boundary roads between two municipalities there are exceptions.  Example - Avon Drive

The numbers start in the south west quadrant of the Township and get larger as they go from east to north.  There could be several numbers in the Township that are the same; that is why it is very important when calling an emergency service that you give both the civic address number and the road name.
