Public Notice

130 Balm Beach Road West, Tiny, Ontario, L0L 2J0 P 705-526-4204 | F 705-526-2372 | www.tiny.ca

Notice of Restricted Beach Use in the Township of Tiny Date: April 3, 2020

Further to the Provincial Order (Ontario Regulation 104/20) issued on March 30, 2020, the Township of Tiny has implemented tight restrictions on the use of public beaches. The restrictions also apply to privately-owned areas used as communal or shared outdoor recreational amenities.

Restrictions:

• Areas of beaches that contain outdoor recreational amenities are closed to the public. View Ontario Regulation 104/20 for a list of what is defined as an amenity.

• Gatherings of more than five people will not be permitted on public beaches. Individuals are permitted to walk along the shoreline on public property that has not been closed; however, physical distancing must be practiced (i.e. a minimum distance of 2 metres between each person) and gatherings of more than five (5) people are strictly prohibited if the individuals are not from the same household (Ontario Regulation 52/20).

The Township is committed to following the orders of the Province and taking any additional measures it deems necessary to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is a fluid situation that is evolving at a rapid pace. Provincial and/or Federal orders could further impact the use of public areas, including beaches. The Township will continue to work diligently to keep the community informed of additional impacts to municipal services.

The Provincial Offences Act has been updated to include offences contrary to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA). Contravention of the Act can lead to fines of $750 to $100,000.

Beaches will be patrolled by Municipal Law Enforcement Officers and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

Individuals are encouraged to use their best judgement when in public spaces or when witnessing others in public spaces. Enforcement resources are limited and complaints will be addressed on a priority basis.

Allegations of non-compliance with the EMCPA can be made by calling the OPP non- emergency line (1-888-310-1122). Dial 9-1-1 for emergencies only.
