By-Law Enforcement

By-Laws are established by the Municipality to regulate specific requirements to the area. By-Laws are no different than any other Law and are enforceable under the Provincial Offences Act and the Municipal Act.

The Municipal Law Enforcement division promotes health, safety and a harmonious community through the inspection and resolution of By-Law complaints. Some of the core operational functions of this division include animal licencing and control, parking control (including fire routes and accessible zones), property standards, signs, zoning and licencing.

All By-Law Complaints are required to be submitted in writing on the required form. Only those complaints filled out in their entirety will be addressed in a priority sequence. Please also be advised that priority will be given to those complaints dealing with the safety of persons. You can find the form here: icon By-law Complaint Form (105.95 kB)
