Designation of Municipal Significance

When applying for a Special Occasion Permit (SOP) for a public event, you may be asked by the AGCO to obtain a designation of Municipal Significance. While the Municipality may designate an event, the Registrar for the AGCO ultimately has the final decision of whether or not to issue a SOP for a public event. In other words, even with a designation from the Town of Lincoln, the Registrar may decide not to issue a Public Event SOP.

A $65.00 fee now applies. 

To obtain a Designation of Municipal Significance from the Town of Lincoln Clerks Department, please complete the form below:

Please provide details to support the request for designation as an event of Municipal Significance.

Personal information contained on this form is collected under the authority of Section 11 of the Municipal Act, 2001 and will be used to determine the eligibility of requests for an event of municipal significance and contact applicants regarding the status of their request. Questions concerning collection of personal information should be directed to the Town Clerk at or 905-563-2799.
