The weather is finally getting more seasonable and with that will come more outdoor recreational activities. As you enjoy the warmer weather, we would like to remind those that have open air fires that daytime burning is not permitted between April 1 until October 31. Burning is only allowed between 5:00pm and 8:00am as long as you have a valid Open Air Burning permit.  Permits are available online, at Lakeshore Variety, Crystal Beach Store and Pass Lake truck stop.

Shuniah Council Meeting Changes
The Municipal Council has recently passed a new Procedural By-law changing Council meeting days from the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month to the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month.  We know Monday's can be busy days and in the past many of our Council meetings were changed to Tuesdays due to holiday Mondays.  Also many of our neighbouring Municipalities currently hold Monday Council meetings so we hope by holding our meetings on Tuesdays it will be more consistent and possibly provide more opportunities for people waiting to attend our meetings.  You can subscribe to Agenda and Minutes notifications and to our Newsletter by visiting our Agenda Web Portal at and click on the
