"I just wanted to pop you a note to thank you so much for all your help with our boat house and making our dream home come true. We are so thankful to you. Construction should begin in the coming weeks and we will keep you updated and send you pictures. Hope you are doing great. Take care and will keep in touch.

"Marie Poirier Planning did an exceptional job in helping us work with the township on some issues to do with our waterfront property. She provided full service start to finish, and took much of the work and stress off our shoulders. We had originally started working with a builder, and ran into some significant problems that jeopardized our waterfront. Marie was able to come in and lead us to a successful solution. Our only regret is that we did not reach out to Marie sooner! We would highly recommend Marie Poirier Planning Associates.

"Before we could renovate and expand our small retail business, a number of zoning hurdles had to be overcome. Marie Poirier Planning helped us to understand the issues, represented our interests before town council, and seamlessly shepherded our application through the planning process."

"Friends of Port Carling is a local residents' group that has opposed inappropriate development in Port Carling, Muskoka. We hired Marie Poirier to decipher the mysteries of planning for us and represent our interests. We were delighted with her planning knowledge and expertise; her communication skills; her ability to see the big picture and recommend strategy; her knowledge of municipal requirements and processes; and her passion and dedication on behalf of clients.
We have no hesitation in recommending Marie's services to anyone looking for a skilled, passionate planner who is also a leader and a trusted advocate of good planning for her clients."
Rick Spence, President, Friends of Port Carling
"What I am about to say I do not receive any financial rewards or incentives and I have certainly paid for her services to date. I have found Ms. Marie Poirier of Marie Poirier Planning and Associates to be very results oriented. She has been very professional in all matters and appears to be well regarded and respected by town staff. She has been in this business for many years and has had to address a wide variety of cottage lot situations. I have never met her personally, but we certainly have exchanged email correspondances during the progression of my situation. At her meeting with the town, she managed to put in place a plan to resolve my current Summons with the expectation that the fine will be dropped and the remaining items be addressed. I would recommend Marie and suggest that it may be worthwhile to pass her name onto others. What I have found out is that it is not worth trying to do this by oneself, but to have a third party such as Marie get involved."
