Pesticides

Since 2003, the use of chemical pesticides has been prohibited within Brossard. The municipal by-law in effect is intended to prevent health- and environment-related risks. It was introduced following the implementation of the Code de gestion des pesticides du Québec (Quebec Pesticide Management Code), which is designed to regulate the use of pesticides for aesthetic reasons on private and public properties.

Pesticides include any substances, materials or micro-organisms used to control, eliminate or repel undesirable organisms. The most common types of pesticide are herbicides, insecticides and fungicides.
 
Did you know that it is necessary to obtain a permit from the City in order to use some of these products?
