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.

Pets

In order to reinforce animal control on the territory and the safety of people, dog owners are required to respect municipal regulations. As a dog owner, you must consult the dog control section in order to obtain a free dog tag and familiarize yourself with the municipal regulations.

Library

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.
