Municipal Numbering and Street Naming

Street naming and appropriate addressing ensures that properties can be located easily by Emergency Services, the public, utility companies and businesses. Ultimately, the City is responsible for the cost, coordination, installation and maintenance of existing municipal street signage and City-initiated street naming or renaming. Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their individual address is displayed and is visible so the property can be easily identified, especially in an emergency.

Municipal street naming is also used to honour and recognize individuals who have contributed to Brantford and society as a whole as well as to reflect the unique history, character, community and culture of the City of Brantford.
