If you plan to have a party, please be respectful of your neighbours and let them know in advance. They may be more tolerant if you don’t surprise them. Limit the number of your guests and keep the party inside after 11 p.m. Don’t forget to plan parking for your friends and clean up afterwards.
During a party be a good host and a good neighbour:
- Be aware of friends that might wander away with open alcohol into other people’s yards.
- Avoid bottles that might break.
- Don’t allow individuals to leave if they are intoxicated as you could be held liable.
By-law exists that prohibit noise created by loud music, parties and rowdy behaviour. Doing so could lead to fines.
Note: The Liquor Licence Act prohibits the consumption of alcohol anywhere other than a residence or a licensed area. Leaving the property with alcohol is illegal.
