With the arrival of spring, many of us have started planning this year’s renovation or construction projects. Whether the installation or renovation of a deck, a fence, a swimming pool or the construction of a new home, there are standards applicable to your project that will help ensure the health and safety of the users, and ensure an improved or maintained living standard for yourselves (as property owners) and of your neighborhood. These standards are implemented and ensured through the building and development permit process. Is a permit required for your project?
The Restigouche Regional Service Commission Planning Division, in partnership with the Village of Charlo, oversees the implementation of land use planning services including, among others, building permitting and inspection. If you are planning a project, or if you have any questions relative to your proposal, we encourage you to contact a representative of the Restigouche RSC Planning Division. It will be their pleasure to work with you on the planning and development of your property.
The Veterans of Legion Branch # 17 will be holding a special remembrance event marking the Landing at Normandie in France at the Charlo Memorial Park on Sunday, June 4th 2017 at the 11th hour. A parade with the veterans and the Charlo Volunteer Firemen is being organized.. A time capsule for our deceased firemen will be interned as a remembrance for their service towards our community. Further info will be forwarded in the near future.
The 44th edition of the Charlo Fall Fair will be held from September 8th to the 10th 2017 inclusively.

The annual general meeting of the Restigouche Tourism Association was held on March 14th at the Salle du Citoyen in Kedgwick.
The association took the opportunity to present its annual tourism forum and honor the Restigouche Tourism Business of the Year 2017 – The Cross Country Ski Club – Les Aventuriers of Charlo.
Les Aventuriers are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. President Jean-Philippe Levesque was present to accept the award.
Unfortunately we must abandon our departure from the quay of Miguasha for a few reasons. Since the wharf has become very dangerous and for the safety of swimmers and volunteers, we had to review our swim event. We would like to thank the Municipality of Nouvelle for their unconditional participation throughout the 15 years. With 327 participants and 287 who finished the 10km and 3km, we must say that the idea was perhaps not so far-fetched.
The Charlo – CIMS FM Swim Challenge event will take place from the big top at the Charlo beach with a triangular course of 3km with the possibility to swim the 3km, 6km and 9km around the same triangle. We also plan to install a ½km buoy for smaller children who may want to enter a “mini challenge”. The event will be held on July 15, 2017.
