Well, I just had a look at Ottawa's site. I found a link for the appointment of Fence Viewers, dated 2004, at a cost of $350.00 per arbitration.stuntman wrote: ↑Apr 28th, 2012 4:37 pmAccording to Mcplar's own quoted sections it does (see my post above). The municipality did not pass a by-law regulating the costs of the fence building so the Act applies (at least the part on the building costs)
Let me put it this way:
Do you really think that a common sticky point (who pays for what) between neighbors would be left without regulation?

So given that link, unless there has been a more recent change, then I have to agree that Ottawa is still using the Line Fences Act regulation for fence cost sharing.
I know MIssissauga, and many of the municiplaities in the GTA passed separate by-laws to opt out of providing fence viewers.
