Please be advised that an open house will be held on: Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the First Floor Lobby, Sarnia City Hall to gather input on new regulations proposed for payday loan establishments.

The City is considering implementing changes that would limit the number of payday loan establishments in the City, regulate where they are permitted and establish minimum distance separations between payday loan establishments and gambling facilities, other payday loan establishments and sensitive land uses, such as schools.

Existing payday loan establishments would be permitted to continue their operations, provided they obtain a licence from the City. However, if the operation ceases or wishes to relocate, they would need to comply with the new regulations.

Additional information regarding the proposed regulations for payday loan establishments are available here.
