You want to install a winter shelter but don’t know the regulations for car shelters in Longueuil? Our experts will share all the important details with you.
The winter season is synonymous with winter sports, magical scenery, and unforgettable moments. From a good snowshoeing session on the beaten track to the pleasure of having a hot chocolate in a local café, winter in Quebec is a season filled with joy and cheerfulness.
Unfortunately, it’s also shoveling season, being late for work, and being exhausted before the day has even started. From the first storm, you have to pick up gloves and shovel and tackle the arduous task of shoveling. You waste time and energy. In anticipation of snowfall, we sometimes even have to get up earlier to avoid delays at work that will make us finish later. All this lost time cannot be made up.
To avoid losing the taste of winter and all its splendour, we strongly recommend you get a winter shelter. This way you can enjoy all the joys of winter and avoid its unpleasant side.
However, it’s still important to be aware of the car shelter regulations in Longueuil. To avoid hefty fines and unpleasant surprises, our experts will inform you about these regulations.

Car shelter regulations in Longueuil: the limits to respect
Warning! Only houses are allowed to install shelters. The shelter must also be installed on the same property as the residence, but not on the lawn. It is mandatory to install it on a parking lane.
There is also a regulation regarding the distance from the street and public roads. Your shelter may encroach slightly on a street’s right-of-way but must respect a minimum distance of 1.50 m from the edge of a street, sidewalk, or bicycle path.
Finally, the only permitted materials are metal for the structure and woven or laminated polyethylene fabrics for exterior cladding.
Where to buy a winter shelter?
Auvents Polo is a leader in the winter shelter market since 1974. Our shelter experts strongly recommend buying from specialists.
Winter shelters from Canadian Tire, Costco, or BMR are less expensive but are not made to last. Also, when you buy from a big box store, installation, uninstallation, and storage are your responsibility.
Also, a winter shelter must be well assembled to be safe. We invite you to consult the BNQ standards to make sure your shelter will be properly assembled. A poorly assembled winter shelter can cause injury, collapse on your car, or worse yet.
This is why we recommend doing business with specialists. To do business with Auvents Polo, nothing could be simpler. Contact us and an experienced member of our team will go take the measurements and give you a quote. Then, our craftsmen take care of preparing your winter shelter. When it’s ready, we come to install the winter shelter at your place.
