By-Law Enforcement

We believe that by working together, we can make our community safe, healthy and enjoyable for everyone. To that end, our town has created by-laws and regulations to encourage residents and businesses to be responsible and respectful of their neighbours and contribute to the health, safety, and vibrancy of our community.

Our by-law enforcement officers are responsible for the investigation and enforcement of all our municipal by-laws. You can often find them out and about in the community, in the streets and in your neighbourhood:

  • providing education
  • conducting inspections
  • responding to complaints in a timely manner
  • issuing warnings
  • applying penalties when necessary

We're also available as a resource! Please give us a call if you have questions or concerns related to bylaws or other enforcement issues. We usually receive inquiries related to building safety issues and property standards, which you can learn more about on our website.
