A word from the Mayor
Leaves turning red confirm that fall is here
The summer season has been busy for
members of the Council and the city administration. Several projects have materialized and we continue to work hard in
order to achieve many more!
TERRASSE EN FÊTE
WORD FROM THE MAYOR..…….....2-3
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL…….………... ...4
RECREATION & CULTURE……10 à 12
On August 23rd, the Municipality held its
annual family day “Terrasse en fête”. It
was under clear skies and a radiant sun
that this unforgettable day unrolled. The
citizens appreciated this year’s novelties,
a car show during the day, a magic show for evening entertainment
and many workshops such as; initiation to gymnastics, scouting, archery, animal life and many more. I would also like to thank the organisational committee as well as the numerous volunteers who took part in
this event. Their great work made this a very memorable day!
The Municipal Council has begun to refresh the interior of the Community Centre and intends on doing even more. We are looking to revamp
and enlarge the kitchen and bathrooms. Thus, we are currently awaiting a response further to a grant request we have submitted therefore,
we hope for a quick and positive response!
You have probably noticed by now, that the construction of the new fire station is also going along well. At
this pace, we are confident that the work should be
completed in November. Watch our website for the
official opening date.
After all, it seems like the lights at the railroad crossing will be working soon. We have asked the
“ministère des Transports” to be present when they
will be running tests upon their activation. We would
like to insure these lights cause less issues possible.
We have recently received good news concerning the Excise Tax. We will be receiving a grant of $867,775
over a five (5) year period, allowing us to continue improving our municipal infrastructure.
The Municipal Council has decided to withdraw from the RELIP. Further to several discussions, the initial
amount forecasted for the construction of the indoor pool, was no longer the same and the Council worried
about the elevated cost this could bring the Terrasse-Vaudreuil citizens. Therefore, we are now in the process of withdrawing.
I encourage you to visit our website frequently. In due time, you will find the full details of our Children’s Holiday Celebration “Fête de Noël des enfants’’ and our Winter Carnival “Terrasse sur glace”. In closing, I urge
you to read page 11 of this publication regarding the new Sport Financial Aid Policy that has been established by the Council.
Enjoy your reading!

PUBLIC-RAIL SAFETY GUIDE
Every year in Canada, approximately 300 collisions and
trespassing incidents occur at highway/railway crossings and along
railway tracks resulting in the death or serious injury of nearly 130
people. Virtually, all of these incidents could be avoided.
Statistics show Operation Lifesaver education works! We encourage
you to visit their website www.operationlifesaver.ca/. This is an educational tool for the public which is extremely interesting. Their other
website, www.olkids.ca/, is an interactive rail-safety site directed at
children and includes stories, games, audio and visual clips, posters
and safety tips.
will not be considered.
Please note that a new form for improvement
suggestions is now available at City Hall.
Your comments are always welcomed.
Under no circumstances will it be
tolerated, for citizens to call or go
directly to the home of our municipal
employees. For any emergency, we
kindly ask you to refer yourself to
page 4 of this newsletter.
DOUBLE UP ON SAFETY
AT THE RAILWAY CROSSING
Whether on foot or in a vehicle, the only place you should ever
cross railway tracks is at an authorized and properly marked crossing. When you approach or cross a railway track, look and listen for
other trains approaching from either direction. Never drive around
the gates. If the gate is down, or in the process of being raised or
lowered, do not cross the tracks.
When the gates at the Terrasse-Vaudreuil railway crossing (3rd Avenue) are dysfunctional, please contact the Railway Police at
1 800 551-2553 and go thru the Ile-Perrot North entrance.
Stationary train for more than 10 minutes:
When the train remains at a standstill for more than 10 minutes, you
must inform the municipality at 514 453-8120, ext. 221. You may
also e-mail us the full details at [email protected] including
your full name, phone number and address, the date and time of the
event, how long the train was stopped and which railway was
FIRE & PREVENTION
FOR YOUR SAFETY
To ensure your safety and the safety of your loved
ones, we consider it important that you pay special
attention to the following recommendations:
Have one smoke detector on each floor level
Check if your smoke detectors are working properly (verify efficiency of your detectors and replace
batteries when you change your clocks twice a
year as daylight savings time begins and ends);
Smoke detectors must be changed every 10 years;
Do not keep flammable products indoors (gas,
Do not keep propane gas indoors or in a garage
that is attached to your home;
Do not block access to your electrical box;
Provide easy access to home exits;
Annual chimney sweeping is mandatory.
ACCESSIBLE EXITS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
During a fire, you may have less than three minutes to get out of
your house. Imagine the precious seconds you could lose if your
exits are filled with snow or obstructed by something!
After each snowfall, you should shovel the snow away from
any exits, balconies or terraces.
Clear the outside of your exits of any bulky objects such as
shovels, snow blower, patio furniture etc.
Inside your home, make sure the circulation areas, such as
corridors and stairs, are always free of any objects especially
toys, shoes or schoolbags.
This advice is provided by “La Sécurité publique du Québec”
ON YOUR TO-DO LIST EVERY YEAR!
Concerned about our citizens’ safety, the TerrasseVaudreuil Fire Department does annual prevention
visits of homes and businesses in the municipality.
The inspections are conducted in order to ensure
compliance with regulations. The main objective is to
prevent incidents that could lead to materials loss, or
worst, loss of life. Note that the Ile-Perrot Fire Department works in collaboration with our Fire Department.
Did you know that you have to proceed to
the chimney-sweeping of a fireplace at
least once a year? This task must be performed by a specialist accredited by the
APC (Association des Professionnels du
Chauffage). The chimney-sweeping turns
out to be necessary because an accumulation of creosote (deposits formed by the
smoke rising in the fireplace) can ignite
and cause a major fire.
Except for fireplaces, grills and barbecues, outdoor
fires are strictly forbidden in Terrasse-Vaudreuil.
During an emergency, it takes valuable time for
emergency personnel to find the exact location of a
call. Visible house numbers can mean the difference
between life and death when someone is not breathing, trapped by a fire, or in need of police assistance.
Taking a few minutes to insure that your address
numbers are properly displayed and easily visible
from the street, day and night, could save you or your
Use dry wood in your stove or fireplace. This produces less
Verify regularly the pipes of your wood stove connected to the
chimney. A three millimeters creosote accumulation is enough
to cause a fire.
Ashes can remain active up to 72 hours. If you wish to clean
your fireplace earlier than that, make sure to put the ashes in
a metal bucket with a lid to prevent sparks. Then, store the
bucket outside (ashes produce carbon monoxide). Be sure
that the bucket is placed at a reasonable distance from the
walls of your house, shed or garage.
COLLECTION / DISPOSAL
HOUSEHOLD AND BULKY GARBAGE
FALL LEAF COLLECTION
Garbage must be placed by the road before
7 a.m. Monday mornings
SELECTIVE COLLECTION OF RECYCLABLES
Bins must be placed by the road before 7 a.m.
To enable automated collection, prevent
breakage and not interfere with snow removal:
Place the bin on your private property at a maximum of one
metre from the curb;
Position the wheels towards your home
Make sure the bin is clear of any object, including another
bin and/or a large object, within a radius of 60 cm;
Make sure the container lid is closed and free of all materials.
Please do not put your bins out too early to avoid attracting animals
and in order to maintain the esthetic appeal of our environment.
BROKEN RECYCLING BINS
If your recycling bin is broken, please inform the administration
at 514 453-8120, ext. 221. A new bin costs $75.
This month, the municipality will
offer one last branch collection,
which will be held on:
Monday, October 6th
It is very important that you pile your branches on your property, along the street, arranged in an orderly way, the cut end
towards the road, before 7 a.m. on collection day.
The maximum volume is 4' wide by 4' high by 8' long
(maximum diameter of 4"). NO ROOTS PLEASE.
Branches must not be piled by the roadside more than
three (3) days prior to collection day.
This year, collection of fall leafs will be
held on Fridays:
Only biodegradable paper bags are accepted for
the collection of fall leafs
Close the bags and keep them protected from bad weather. Bags must be placed at the curb before 7 a.m.. Paper
bags are available at most grocery and hardware stores.
Tips and tricks
Use your leaves as garden mulch
This technique protects your trees, shrubs, flowerbeds
and vegetable gardens against the cold.
Compost your leaves on your lawn
By decomposing gradually on the surface of your lawn,
leaves will add extra minerals to those provided by
grass clippings, compost or natural fertilizers.
Store your leaves for use in your homemade compost next spring
Leaves provide a source of carbon that can be integrated in your homemade compost’s « green materials », at
a time of year when carbon-rich materials are scarce.
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE
In April 2013 was the official opening of the Écocentre
Vaudreuil-Soulanges, located at 2800, Henry-Ford Street
in Vaudreuil-Dorion. The Ecocenter is the place to dispose
of your household hazardous waste such as your disinfecting products, your construction or excavation material,
your old tires, your electronics, etc.
For the complete list of accepted materials, dial 450 4555434 or visit their website: www.mrcvs.ca/ecocentre.
TEMPORARY CAR SHELTERS
Temporary car shelters may
be set up between October 15
and April 15 of the following
It is mandatory that such shelters be made of industrialfabricated metal tubes, be of uniform color, and free of stains
and perforations. The distance between the shelter and the traffic lane must be no less than 3 meters, and a one-meter right-of
-way on the side is mandatory.
A maximum number of 2 temporary single car shelters, OR
one double temporary car shelter, is authorized per housing unit.
AS A MATTER OF DECENCY AND TO BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH CURRENT REGULATIONS, we ask that all dog
and cat owners refrain from allowing their pet to roam freely.
We wish to remind you that license tags are mandatory for
dogs. The cost of the license is $15 for two (2) years. License tags are available at City Hall.
The municipality ensures people and pet safety on its territory by means of the animal control. The Centre Canin du
Suroît has the authority to intervene on behalf of the Municipality either by picking up or capturing a lost, injured or dead
pet, taking it to the vet, providing it with shelter or putting it
up for adoption if it remains unclaimed after 5 days.
All costs incurred are transferred to the owner.
Please be advised that parking is prohibited on municipal
streets between midnight and 7 a.m. from November 15 till April
1 inclusively. Parking is also prohibited during emergency
snow removal operations.
To report a lost, captured, injured or dead
URBAN PLANNING AND PERMITS
Be advised that the Municipality will no longer tolerate that
snow from private entrances be deposited on the sidewalks, the borders or in the street, near fire hydrants or on
any land belonging to the Municipality.
URBAN PLANNING AND INSPECTION
This practice goes against Municipal bylaws and may be punished by fine. Should it be impossible for you to keep the snow
from your parking on your land, it is your responsibility to dispose of it otherwise.
If you use a contractor for your snow removal, it is of your responsibility to inform them of this bylaw.
STREET LIGHTS MAINTENANCE
We ask that residents contact the administration to report malfunctioning lights by indicating the number and precise location
of the pole. You can also do it directly on our website: www.terrasse
-vaudreuil.ca. Lights are usually repaired within fifteen (15) days
following the service call.
AVOID ANY PROBLEM!
PRIOR TO UNDERTAKING ANY WORK, with the exception
of regular maintenance and repairs, including the construction of additions for commercial or business purposes, it is
important to consult the Building Inspector to ensure that the
proposed work meets all urban planning bylaws.
The Building Inspector is there to help you. Don't hesitate to
call her when planning your project. She will inform you if the
proposed project requires a permit. Mrs. Lily Ducharme,
Building Inspector, will meet with you BY APPOINTMENT
ONLY. Contact us by phone at 514 453-8120, ext. 221 or
via e-mail at [email protected]

Polymos is proud of the creation of its EPS recycling program organized in collaboration with the City of TerrasseVaudreuil.
Polymos' recycling program allows the population to recycle EPS (frequently used as packaging protection for
fragile goods) in an eco-friendly way.
Prior to Polymos' program, it wasn't possible to include
EPS in the recycling collection (blue container) despite
the fact it has always been 100% recyclable.
Collected EPS products will be recycled by Polymos and
re-used in the manufacturing process.
Collection containers are situated along the exterior
wall between the Library and Community Centre.
The containers are blue recycling bins specially identified for EPS collection and they are accessible at all
EMERALD ASH BORER
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a destructive insect pest of ash trees. Native
to eastern Asia, this pest was first discovered in Canada and the U.S. in 2002.
The adult measures 8.5 to 14mm
The EAB attacks and kills species of ash. In fact, the EAB has
killed millions of ash trees to urban and forested areas in both
countries and poses a major economic and environmental
The rate of dispersal of EAB by natural flight is considered as
being average. On the other hand, the spread of the pest by
human activity via movement of products of wood is significantly
In order to prevent the spreading
of EAB, a federal ministerial regulation orders prohibiting movement of potentially infested ash
commodities out of those regions.
In regards with what can be collected:
White, clean packaging-source EPS with no food residue, paper, glue, tape, staples, etc...
All other materials that are not accepted to be recycled including: EPS used as food containers, coffee
cups, plates, fast food packaging, any styrofoam® product (extruded polystyrene), typically blue or pink like fish
or meat packaging trays used in groceries.
EPS is a highly environmentally friendly component. It
is made of 95% air and is harmless to our air, soil as
well as to ground water.
EPS contains no CFCs and HCFCs and never did.
It is important to differentiate the EPS (expanded polystyrene – typically white in color) of the XPS (extruded
polystyrene, better known as Styrofoam®, which is typically pink or blue).
Since April 2014, the zones
aimed by this regulation will
broaden to included not only
infested areas but potentially
infested areas also.
Unfortunately, Terrasse-Vaudreuil figures on that list.
In order to protect our trees, firewood should be bought, burnt
and kept locally.. Do not move infested material out of this area.
Both are made with polystyrene but are produced
through different processes making them different in
terms of their physical properties.

D’-shaped exit holes
Halloween is a time of great excitement for children but
the thrills can make them forget some of the safety
rules they have learned. It is important to keep your
child's safety in mind when planning costumes, decorations, treats and activities on the special day itself.
Lit jack-o-lanterns, flimsy or complicated costumes,
street traffic and unsafe treats are just some of the
risks. With some simple precautions, you can make
sure that Halloween is a safe and happy experience for
the whole family. Here are our safety tips.
HALLOWEEN SPAGHETTI SUPPER
FUND RAISER FOR
Saturday November 1st from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the
Community Center will be held a spaghetti supper fundraiser under the under the Halloween theme. Funds
will go towards the José-Maria School.

participate to the draw!
Tickets are on sale via students of the school, upon
drop off or pick-up of the children.
If places are still available, there will be tickets at the
0 to 3 y/o: free
4 to 9 y/o: $10
10 y/o and over: $15
BUY YOUR TICKETS QUICKLY!
TRICK OR TREATING
Go trick or treating with your children each year until they are old
enough to go with a friend. Children who are alone are vulnerable
to injury and bullying by older children or may encounter a predator. When they are old enough, make sure they go with a friend
or in a group, and know the routes they will be taking. You can
also follow along at a distance to keep an eye on them.
Tell your children to walk, not run from house to house and to
stay on the sidewalk or at the side of the road facing traffic. They
should only cross the road at the corner and look both ways before crossing. If you are driving on Halloween, be aware of children, drive slowly and enter and exit driveways and alleyways
Give each child a flashlight to carry, to make them more visible to
motorists and others.
Tell your children to stay in well-lit areas and only visit homes
that have their outside lights turned on. Make sure they know
never to go inside homes or cars.
Take a backpack along, to empty goodies into if the loot bag becomes too heavy.
Tell your children not to eat any goodies until you have looked
them over. Throw out any treats that are not commercially
wrapped, have loose or torn wrappers or have holes in the wrappers. If you suspect tampering with any of the treats, notify the
police. Serve dinner before your children go out, so that they will
be less tempted to eat goodies along the way.
Be cautious about giving children any treats that could be potential choking hazards. Some treats such as chewy candies, peanuts and hard candies could be a choking hazard.
Check toys or novelty items for small parts. If they do have small
parts, do not let children under three years of age play with them.
You might want to consider an alternative to sugar-based treats, like sugarless gum. Stickers or multi-coloured
pencils can be a nice replacement for
traditional treats. Ask your children for
For diabetic children, monitor the treats
so that they fit into their specialized
meal plan. Leftover treats can be traded
with other children or given away.
Treats may also cause severe side effects (adverse reactions) in children
who have allergies or sensitivities.
CHILDREN’S HOLIDAY PARTY
