A fingerboard sign may be installed to direct motorists to an all-weather road forming a shortcut from a provincial highway to a destination on or adjacent to the next provincial highway.

A finger board sign may be placed in advance of an all-weather road to indicate the first community located on that road. Additional signing required off the highway is the responsibility of the rural municipality, where additional signing is located and must be in place before installation of the fingerboards.

To assist travellers in locating a destination next to a provincial highway, a guide sign can be installed to help provide direction.

Requests for road name signing will originate from the Rural Municipality in which the road is located. The road name will not promote a particular business or commercial interest.

Highway Naming Procedure


We recognize that many subdivisions may generate a significant amount of traffic and we will install, on a cost recovery basis, Subdivision guide signs for subdivisions that are immediately adjacent to or whose access is directly to the highway. These signs assist in identifying the location or the access to such locations. Requests for subdivision signing will originate from the Rural or Urban Municipality in which the subdivision is located.

Subdivision guide signs will be installed on the highway that is adjacent to the eligible facility. One sign in each direction of travel at each direct access to the subdivision will be considered.
