We are pleased to welcome you as new residents in our beautiful Municipality rich in nature and green spaces.
To facilitate your arrival and integration into our Municipality, we have created this section specially designed for you, with information on the services offered and the resources available.
In addition, our website is constantly evolving and you can contribute to its expansion by sending us your suggestions by e-mail to Darina Bélanger at email@example.com.
Access to lakes
The territory of the Municipality of Mille-Isles is dotted with numerous lakes inhabited by shoreline property owners. The land bordering our lakes is privately owned. As a result, there is no public access to a lake on the Municipality’s territory.
The Municipality of Mille-Isles has four (4) little outdoor libraries on its territory where you can drop off or borrow books. For more information, we invite you to consult the parks and recreational facilities section.
In addition, if you are a resident of the Municipality and you use the services of a nearby library, such as Morin-Heights, Saint-Jérôme, Saint-Colomban, Saint-Sauveur or Lachute, you are eligible for a refund of $20 per year. In order to benefit from this return, you must provide us with the original receipt from the library as well as your surname, first name and address. Our offices are located at 1262 de Mille-Isles Road, Mille-Isles, Quebec, J0R 1A0.
Residual material collection
The residual material collection schedule is submitted with the municipal tax bill at the beginning of each year. However, this calendar is available on the Municipality’s website in the Residual materials section.
Garbage and recycling bins
Garbage and recycling containers have been standardized throughout the Municipality of Mille-Isles since January 1, 2018.
Your receptacle must match the following description or they will not be picked up:

The main objective of By-law 2016-03 is to ensure the proper functioning of residual material collections, to introduce source separation, to respect the principles of recovery and to rely on citizen participation.
Collection of bulky objects
A bulky item collection service is offered once a month. The dates are indicated on the collection calendar sent with your tax bill or on the website of the Municipality in the Residual materials section. You will find in the same section the criteria that must be met in order for your bulky objects to be collected.
The Municipality of Mille-Isles encourages composting in order to reduce landfilling and revalorize organic materials. Adopting the domestic composting bin and using the community containers for voluntary contribution, is taking a concrete action to return your organic materials to the earth. In addition, making your own compost is a simple and ecological method that can be summed up in a few steps.
For more information, we invite you to consult the Residual materials section. You will find in the same section useful information to make a good compost.
Construction or renovation
Undertaking new construction or home renovations can be planned. Whether it is indoors or outdoors, you must first obtain the necessary permit. You can obtain the permit application forms by downloading them from our website in the regulations section permits and certificats.

Communication tools with citizens
Real estate transfer
The duties on real estate transfers, commonly known as the “welcome tax”, are imposed upon the acquisition of a building, even if the new owner already has a building in our Municipality.
The transfer tax is payable in one instalment, 30 days after the issue of the invoice.
To find out more, we invite you to browse through the section Real Estate Transfer Tax.
The Municipality makes available a list of community organizations offering services in the area. This recognition makes a significant contribution to improving the quality of life of citizens.
Municipal taxes are payable in installments without interest if the due dates indicated on the notice of assessment are met. Otherwise, interest (15% per annum) will be charged on your outstanding monthly payments.
Consult the municipal taxes section for terms and due dates.
Each year, school boards mail school tax bills to property owners. It is your responsibility to verify the school board serving your area and their payment methods.
