INFORMATION & RESOURCES – COVID-19
The Town of Hanover wishes to keep residents informed of the latest news and information on the COVID-19 virus. The situation is being continually monitored to ensure we remain pro-active in taking every necessary precaution to limit the spread of the disease and health impact on the community.
In response to the Premiers announcement of a Provincewide shutdown effective 12:01am on Saturday December 26, 2020, the Town of Hanover will be closing all of its facilities to the public in accordance with this directive.
Municipal services, including police and fire services, road maintenance, water, wastewater, waste management, cemetery operations, and building inspections will continue as scheduled.
Payments can continue to be made to the Town through on-line banking, mail and by using the drop-off box located adjacent to the main doors of the Civic Centre. For further details on electronic services please refer to the e-services page on our website by selecting the following link e-services
Appointments can be pre-arranged for permits, licences and commissioning of documents by contacting the Municipal Office Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.

The Town will continue to work closely with the Grey Bruce Health Unit and health professionals in Grey and Bruce County to respond accordingly to the COVID-19 situation as it evolves.
Please continue to check the website and social media for the latest information on municipal operations.
We have developed a Frequently Asked Questions document for general municipal service questions. Select FAQ's to view.
The Town of Hanover recognizes the importance of communicating with our businesses and residents during this time, being a trusted resource, and helping to promote positivity and community connection. We have developed an aggressive #InThisTogetherHanover social media campaign - everyone is encouraged to use and search the hashtag when sharing on social media.
+ Community members are asked to participate in the Positive Power Challenge! Each Wednesday morning, we will feature someone in our community doing positive things. People wishing to share or nominate someone are encouraged to comment on the Positive Power posts what they are doing and we will follow-up directly for more information. Alternatively, they can also direct message us on Facebook and Instagram or email email@example.com to contribute.
