Activity permissions during COVID-19

The City of Beaumont wants to ensure activities planned by the community are safe and successful. To help ensure public safety and quality of life for all residents, special permission continues to be required from the city for organized activities that involve:

  • partial obstruction or closure of a public roadway
  • use of public property (e.g., city parks)
  • temporary structures (e.g., tents or signage)
  • relaxation or waiver of a city bylaw (e.g., noise restrictions).

Please note that due to provincial health orders, some activities that were previously allowed with special permission are not currently permitted. The tables below detail activities that are allowed with permission, those that are currently not permitted and those subject to the discretion of the City of Beaumont.
