Street signs are important for indicating to drivers:

  • Stop locations
  • Parking regulations
  • Hazards and warnings
  • Directions

Signs on the roadway are placed in accordance to the Ontario Traffic Manual. This manual defines the size, shape, reflective background, height, and location for all signs.


Signs are usually placed due to a bylaw regulating some sort of restriction or road designation. These Bylaws are passed through Council usually through a recommendation from the Town Bylaw Committee.


If you notice any missing, bent, twisted or faded signs, or have a request to have signage changed in a certain location, contact The Ingersoll Public Works at 519-485-0120 or email us at
