Bylaws

| |

The Municipal Act, a piece of provincial legislation, gives municipal councils tremendous authority over many issues within their jurisdiction.  One of the powers granted to municipalities is the authority to create by-laws.  By-laws are real 'laws' that can be enforced by a municipal enforcement officer, the police, or by the courts.  

Almost everything Council or staff do is approved by way of administrative by-laws such as approval of the budget, the purchase or sale of land, etc.  Council also passes general by-laws governing all residents, businesses, and property owners in the town.

We have gathered here a number of the most relevant and up-to-date by-laws in digital form for your reference.  If you don't see a specific by-law here on this list, it does not necessarily mean there is no by-law governing that topic.  If you have questions on any by-laws for any specific issues, please do not hesitate to contact the By-Law Officer or Town Clerk for more information or copies of older by-laws. Call 613-925-2812 or email.
