If you're hosting an event or doing construction work in a residential area or at a certain time, you may need a noise exemption permit. For example, you need a noise exemption permit for any activity on your property that exceeds the noise limits and prohibited times outlined in the Town of Innisfil's Noise By-law.

Apply for a noise exemption permit

Please complete the Noise Exemption Permit Application and submit it by email to atangney@innisfil.ca. Make sure to apply at least two weeks in advance of the event date so that we can review and process your request. Your permit is valid for the current calendar year.


If you live in Innisfil, there is no application fee. If you are not a resident of Innisfil, it will cost $365 to apply for a noise exemption permit.
