Yellowknife, NWT – The city of Yellowknife has a message for anybody planning to store their canoe at the government dock in Old Town: you must have a canoe tag for this year.

The city’s Director of Planning and Development, Jeff Humble, says the area will be monitored starting on Thursday to ensure users are respecting the pay-per-use system.

He adds there is a fee to purchase a tag.

“$200 which is essentially a storage fee for the full year. The fee is established in our fees and charges based upon other uses that are established for other forms of storage.”

We asked Humble what would happen if a canoe doesn`t have a renewed tag.”

“I’m pretty confident the city will be conducting reviews to make sure people are adhering to this and for those that don’t, this is essentially the same as a parking violation of a vehicle. We encourage everyone to comply.”

Humble says tags can be purchased at City Hall`s Customer Service desk.
