Special Occasion Insurance is mandatory for all rentals. A minimum $2,000,000 policy with the Corporation of the Town of Penetanguishene named as additional insured is required OR at the time of booking, you can request the Town to administer coverage at an additional cost. 

The Town has a no-smoking by-law prohibiting smoking in all Municipal Buildings and Municipal Facilities. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated in the compliance of this by-law.
