Civic Address Signing
Civic address signs are a helpful tool for locating rural property. These signs can be especially helpful to emergency responders when finding a location in the event of an emergency.
Municipalities may install Civic Address Signs without a permit if all the conditions in the below Civic Address Policy are followed.
Information regarding permits, design, location and sight-lines for signs.
Rural municipalities with a permit will be allowed to install approved rural crime watch signs adjacent to provincial highways within their boundaries. The specific locations to be signed will be at the discretion of the rural municipality.
The fabrication, installation and maintenance of the signs are the responsibility of the permit holder. The signs will be allowed on private property or, up to one metre inside the highway right-of-way.
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.Fingerboard Sign Application Form
Road Name Signs
A Road Name sign may be installed to identify an all weather municipal road if there are no other existing highway signs identifying the intersection, road or a destination accessible via the road. 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. The option of having the land location instead of the road name is also available.
Guidelines for signs that can be installed along a highway to show the name of intersecting roads. Signs are installed by the Ministry of Highways or the municipality.

Highway Naming Procedure
Will assist in developing names for provincial highways. It also applies to municipalities for provincial roads.
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.
