OMDREB's Government Relations Committee has been working closely with The Town of Oakville to participate in the consultation process related to revisions to the Sign By-Law, specifically REALTOR® Open House signage and increasing the amount of allowed signs from three (3) to five (5).

The *NEW* Sign By-Law pertaining to real estate directional signs came into effect on January 1, 2019.
