Petitioning Mayor Sue Paterson

Allow citizens to have Backyard Chickens in Hanover Ontario!

Currently within the town of Hanover Ontario the citizens are prohibited from keeping chickens in our backyards!
We want to keep hens in our backyards on our own properties!  Our reasons for this are numerous:

  • We would like to become more self sufficient in our food supply.
  • We would like to know exactly where our food comes from, and how it is grown.
  • We would like to educate our families on responsible animal care and ensure that our animals are raised and cared for with diligence. 

  • Hanover is an agricultural community and we feel that it is important for Hanover to lead the way on this issue.   

Places such as Guelph, Brampton and Waterloo have animal control Bylaws that allow a maximum number of hens.  Let's not be left behind, Please sign if you agree that we should have the right to keep hens in our backyards!  This petition will be used to show the Town Council that we have support on this matter.
