Tax Relief 

The Town has decided to maintain a 0% interest rate on unpaid tax accounts for citizens and merchants until July 5, 2021.

In concrete terms, this measure allows citizens to defer payments scheduled for March 3, 2021 and May 3, 2021 inclusively without financial impact until July 5, 2021. This decision will be reviewed as the situation evolves for future payments.

Please note that, even if the offices are closed, citizens can send their payment by cheque (by mail or drop it in the mailbox at Town Hall) or electronically through their financial institution's website.

Vaccination campaign against COVID-19

The vaccination campaign against COVID-19 continues in the Laurentians. 

In order to support seniors who would have no means of transportation, the Town of Rosemère has decided to enhance its TAXIBUS offer and has added Blainville and Boisbriand vaccination centers to the list of approved destinations.

It is therefore possible to take advantage of the TAXIBUS service to go to these 2 vaccination centers to receive your vaccine and then return to your home.

This service is offered at the modest cost of $1.00 to go / $1.00 to return, payable to the driver.


In order to use this service, you must follow the following steps:

1) Make your appointment to the vaccination center

TAXIBUS service is available Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

You must have an appointment at the Blainville or Boisbriand vaccination center before you can reserve the TAXIBUS.

It is important to note that these are the only 2 centers currently allowed. It is therefore not possible to use the TAXIBUS for an appointment at another collection center.


Appointments for vaccination must be booked online: https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/progress-of-the-covid-19-vaccination/


If you don't have access to a computer or if you are having difficulty making an online appointment, please ask your family and friends for help. If needed, help is available by calling 1 877 644 4545 (toll-free from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday to Friday or from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday).


2) Confirm that you are well registered for the TAXIBUS service

To take advantage of the TAXIBUS, you must register with the Town of Rosemère Community Services, 450 621-3500, ext. 7380.

Your registration remains valid as long as you reside at the same address.


3) Book your transport

The reservation of the transport is done by phone. It must be made in advance:

  • For an outing on Tuesday: call before Friday, at 4:00 p.m.
  • For an outing on Thursday or Friday: call before Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Call 579-275-0301. Ask for circuit 222.

Blainville Vaccination Centre 
820 Curé-Labelle Boulevard, Blainville, J7C 2K6

Boisbriand Vaccination Centre
610 Curé-Boivin Boulevard, Boisbriand, J7G 2A8

A TAXIBUS will pick you up directly at your home to take you to the vaccination center. It is unfortunately not possible to go to other locations during the transport.

COVID-19: A Self-Care Guide

The Quebec government has developed a self-care guide to help citizens make the best possible decisions for their health and their loved ones during the pandemic. This guide will help you find out the best ways to protect yourself, learn about the basic care to give to those around you, and find out who and when to consult. Download it now from the MSSS Web site. An English version is available. (https://publications.msss.gouv.qc.ca/msss/document-002491/)


**A new reporting form is now available on the Régie de police Thérèse-De Blainville's Web site.

A new reporting form is now available on the Régie de police Thérèse-De Blainville website. Citizens who witness behaviour that does not comply with the rules related to COVID-19 can use it for non-urgent cases. Click here to access the form.  

One of the objectives is to relieve congestion in the 911 service and to lighten the workload of the dispatchers who must respond to the many complaints. A police officer will receive the forms and a follow-up will be done according to priorities. It is possible that interventions will sometimes be done over the phone. Citizens are asked not to call 911 to report a gathering or other non-urgent situations in order to avoid clogging the telephone lines of the 911 emergency centres.

If you witness a serious situation on our territory that requires police intervention, you can go to the RIPTB web page and fill out the form or contact the police at 450 435-2421 ext. 0. 

Awareness and information are the approaches favoured by all police forces in Quebec at the present time. Police officers are present and will continue to intervene, while respecting the powers granted to them in the context of a health emergency.

For more information, visit the RIPTB website.
