Natural Heritage Study

The United Counties of Prescott et/and Russell as well as The United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry have partnered with SNC to conduct a Natural Heritage Systems (NHS) study.

An NHS is a network of interconnected natural features such as forests, rivers, wetlands, and agricultural lands. These systems are made up of core natural areas and natural linkages that support wildlife movement and natural processes necessary to maintain biological diversity, natural functions, ecosystems, and sustainable development activities.

SNC invites interested residents and stakeholders to tune-in for virtual public information sessions on the updated draft Natural Heritage System maps. Feedback will assist in updating Official Plan policies for the Counties.

2020 Township Annual Report to Taxpayers

We would normally release this report at the Annual Mayor’s Breakfast.  However, in this time of unprecedented change, we were not able to host the breakfast this year.

The Township, along with many others,  has had to adapt and adjust our services to keep our employees and the public safe. As we continue to move forward,  we want to highlight some activities the Township has undertaken with the residents of North Dundas.   

Please take a moment to review our  2020 Township Annual Report.

New Winter Safety Features

Track My Plow & Winter Safety Features

TORONTO ― The Ontario government is expanding the 511 app to include new winter driving features that will provide drivers and the trucking industry with additional information to support safer route planning when travelling on provincial highways.

“Driving during the winter months can be a challenge in every part of the province, and our government remains committed to keeping Ontario’s roads and highways safe,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “That’s why we are enhancing the Ontario 511 app with winter safety features that will provide drivers with even more information so they navigate the best route.”

The Ontario 511 app is now available to all drivers and includes these additional features:

  • Track My Plow which will allow drivers to track the location of snowplows and salt trucks on provincial highways in Ontario
  • Information on winter road conditions so drivers can see which roads are bare or covered with snow
  • Weather warnings from Environment Canada to alert drivers of upcoming storms
  • Up-to-date information on rest areas across the province

The app also provides images from over 600 cameras and includes up-to-date highway information on construction, collisions and road closures. The Ontario 511 app is available for free on the App Store and Google Play.

The full news release and additional information is available on the Ontario Government website.
