Garage sales

General principle

Garage sales are allowed in residential zones identified in the zoning bylaw but must meet certain conditions.


  • No one can hold a garage sale without having a valid permit issued by the City. The permit is available 24 hours a day at no cost, at the offices of the Patrol located at 10 Sunnydale;
  • The permit is obtained by completing and signing a form provided by the City with the following information: applicant's name, surname, address and telephone number as well as the date of the sale;
  • Garage sales may only sell used items, items acquired for domestic use by the occupants where they are being sold, the quantity not exceeding the normal needs of the occupants;
  • Only one sale is permitted annually for the same property;
  • A garage sale can only be held for one or two consecutive days;
  • All garage sales must be held between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ;
  • Only signs provided by the City are allowed to be posted in the City to advertise the sale;
  • These signs are issued at the same time as the permit and are limited to four per address;
  • Signs may be installed 48 hours prior to the sale;
  • All signs must be removed immediately following the end of the sale under risk of a penalty.
