Department Head

Jacques Gauthier, Chief Building Official & Senior By-law Enforcement Officer


Building our community!


The Township of Champlain By-law Enforcement Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of municipal by-laws within our community. This service is aimed at ensuring that the health and safety of everybody is protected and respected and their properties maintained as per the municipal regulations provided, thereby preserving the quality of life that each citizen is entitled to.

All complaints and violations are investigated and are dealt with confidentially. In most cases, warnings and recommendations solve the problems. Reoccurring infractions however are dealt with by issuing official offence notices, sometimes by issuing fines and, in rare situations, by summons to appear in Court.

Should you wish to report a by-law infraction, or what seems to you as such, particularly in regards to fire, safety or health hazards or nuisance, you may contact us directly by calling our office at: 613-675-4727.
