Purpose

The Municipal Clerk's Department processes claims for damages (killed or injured) to livestock caused by wildlife as outlined in the Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program. 

Damage claims are referred to the Municipal Clerk's Department or one of the Municipality's Livestock Valuers within 48 hours of discovering the incident. All claims will be inspected by the Municipality's Livestock Valuer who will provide a report. The Municipality is responsible for claims where wildlife has killed or injured the livestock or poultry. Council appoints two (2) Livestock Valuers to investigate livestock claims.

The Valuer is responsible to investigate claims and determine the type of predator that is responsible.

The Valuer completes a detailed written report of his/her findings and submits a copy to the Municipal Clerk and the owner. Within the report is the amount of compensation in accordance with the Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program.
