Bylaws, Violations & Enforcement

City Council establishes bylaws to manage activities and provide a safe and livable community. Authority to create bylaws comes from Provincial legislation in the Community Charter and Local Government Act. 

The Charter specifies which bylaws can be created. These bylaws regulate, prohibit or impose a variety of requirements, and enforcement is undertaken where necessary to obtain compliance with City regulations.
