Were you thinking of using pesticides to kill weeds or insects in your garden? In Montréal, the use of pesticides is regulated. Find out everything you need to know here.
In Montréal, the use of pesticides outside of buildings is prohibited.
However, if your property is infested, you can get a temporary permit to use pesticides.
Before granting a permit, the city may require one of its employees to visit your property to make sure:
- that there is an infestation as defined in the by-law.
- that the targeted area is not one where there is a risk for human health (such as a daycare, school, residence for seniors, playground, or place of worship).
