Pesticide Spraying

The City currently applies some herbicides to control dandelions and other broad leaf weeds. The Parks Division apply herbicides once every year or two to sport fields, but for other areas, we apply at a lower frequency.

Parks with high weed-density will usually have a herbicide application approximately every three to four years. 

Signage is posted after any necessary application.

NOTE: The City does not have a formal spraying schedule and do not provide residents with application dates in advance as the window of application is dependent on the weather and staffing availability. 

We take the health and well-being of citizens and green spaces seriously, so all herbicides and pesticides are carefully chosen and are fully certified by both the federal and provincial governments.

What are Pesticides?

Pesticides are products used to kill plants, insects and plant diseases. Pesticides used on lawns and gardens include herbicides (which kill plants), insecticides (which kill insects) and fungicides (which kill fungi).
