Benches installed under the Commemorative Bench Program will remain the property of the City of Markham and cannot be removed once installed.

Maintenance and Repair

The City will maintain and perform any necessary repairs on the bench for a maximum of 10 years.


Starting from the date of installation for a 10-year period, the City will provide one replacement bench for any bench that has been damaged for any reason, beyond the point of repair, at no additional cost to the applicant.

The City will cover the cost of one replacement plaque over the 10 year period from the date of installation.

Agreement Term

Ten years after the date of installation, the applicant may contact the City if they wish to extend the terms of agreement for an additional 10-year period, pending the assessment of the bench condition.
