Coyotes tend to be more visible at this time of year because they are looking for food and a mate which means they can be more active during the day.

Residents can prevent coyotes from visiting their properties by following some simple precautions:

Burlington, Ont.—Jan. 27, 2023 — The City of Burlington is creating a new residential parking permit program for residential on-street parking. Residents are being asked to take a short online survey by Monday, March 6, 2023. The information gathered from the survey will be used to inform City staff. They will use the information to:
