The Town of East Gwillimbury's (EG's) Fill and Site Alteration By-law is designed to regulate the importation of fill materials and to maintain current drainage patterns. The By-law further details processes and protocols to facilitate the needs of both large and small scale Commercial Fill and Site Alteration Projects while protecting the environment and residents of EG. The Fill By-law was amended on October 2nd, 2018 to reflect the dual jurisdiction with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA). Please be advised that you may require a permit from both the Town and the LSRCA. Fill By-law 2013-066 Is currently under review and the current version can be found below:

Fill By-law 2013-066 (Amended in 2018)
