SEPO’s GOALS

To lead collective action in support of the long term affordable enjoyment of our properties in an unspoiled natural environment.

To encourage responsible attitudes for sustaining the high quality of life on our St. Edmunds properties.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula is under a State of Emergency

There is nothing open except a gas station. Should you have a problem with your vehicle, you may be fined for non-essential travel.

You should not use the washrooms anywhere on your trip north.

You should not enter any stores on your trip north.

If you attempt to go for a hike in a restricted park you risk getting a fine of up to $880 (there have been multiple fines laid on visitors in the area).

St. Edmunds Property Owners Inc. originated in 1975.  Since inception, “SEPO” has represented the concerns of many property owners in the former Township of St. Edmunds and recently throughout the entire Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula.  Following amalgamation with three other local municipalities, some property owners in this part of the peninsula feel that they no longer have an effective voice in the municipality.  SEPO continues to be a voice for all property owners and to reach out to similar ratepayer groups in the municipality.
