What do physical addresses mean to my community?
Creating physical addresses requires naming all roads and assigning numbers consistently to all properties. Once the road names and property numbers are assigned and adopted by bylaw, the new physical addresses can be used for Basic 9-1-1 service.

What is 9-1-1?
9-1-1 is a single telephone number that provides common access to ALL EMERGENCY SERVICES. It saves callers from having to search for the correct phone numbers to call in an emergency.
What is the difference between a civic and mailing address?
A civic address is the official number and street name that is assigned to a property, building or structure for identification and emergency dispatch procedures. It is a unique identifier for location purposes and does not include a postal code.
A mailing address is used by Canada Post to sort and deliver communications to your location. In the City of Dawson it identifies your location by a post office box and it includes a postal code.
Can I assign my own address?
I’ve had the same address for a long time. How do I know if emergency responders will be able to locate my address?
It is in your best interest to ensure the civic address you are using is correct and is correctly affixed to your home in a location that is visible to responders in order to get the best possible response time during emergency situations.
How do I notify important agencies of my new civic address?
Government systems for property assessments, taxes and utility billing are all updated automatically. Most other agencies, associations and organizations have a simple address request form that can be filled out and processed free of charge. These forms can usually be found on existing documents, at their service desks or on-line on their web sites.
