Administrative offices 

All administrative offices are open according to regular business hours.

However, the Town strongly suggests that residents make an appointment, as much as possible, before coming in person, and encourages them to continue to give priority to communications, payments and sending documents either electronically or by telephone in order to ensure a safe reopening for everyone. To prevent the risks associated with the spread of the virus, the Town has implemented a number of health and distancing measures to ensure the health and safety of employees and residents, while complying with government guidelines. For example, we have rearranged the common areas and work spaces in our buildings in order to abide by the 2-metre rule between employees and also between employees and residents.

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/)



Given the many financial impacts of the pandemic of Rosemère residents' income, the Town has decided to extend, until September 30, 2020, the maintenance of the 0% interest rate on unpaid tax bills for residents and merchants.

Although the administrative offices are open, the Town is encouraging residents to send their payments by cheque (either by mail or by dropping it in the mailbox at Town Hall) or electronically through their financial institution's website.

Please note that cash is not accepted.

**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.
