This fact sheet explains the process and rules associated with structure and sewage system removal. Cottagers may be removing cottage lot structures or sewage systems from their cottage lot as part of eligibility, in order to replace a structure or because they have chosen not to enter into a new occupational authority after December 31, 2017.
Structure removal must be done to the satisfaction of MNRF and a site inspection will be conducted usually prior to work starting, and once the work is complete. Please contact the cottage lot program well in advance of conducting any work so that a site visit can be arranged. Staff may be able to provide advice specific to your lot that may make your structure removal project easier.
