There are standards for fence height and structure in Toronto. If you have a swimming pool, you need to have a particular type of fence. If you need your fence to be taller for a specific reason, you have to apply for a fence exemption permit.
Home fences cannot be made of:
- barbed or chicken wire
- sharp material
- corrugated metal panels
Fence height depends on a number of factors, such as whether or not it is located on residential or non-residential property. View the Fence Bylaw.
