Bylaw Enforcement FAQs

  • What is a Bylaw?

    Municipal bylaws are public regulatory laws which apply in a given area of the City. Within its jurisdiction and specific to those areas mandated by the higher body, a municipal bylaw is no different than any other law. It can be enforced with penalties, challenged in court and it must comply with all other laws of BC and Canada.

     

  • How are Bylaws Enforced?

    Municipal bylaws are often enforceable through the public justice system.

    Council gets the power to pass bylaws through the Community Charter, which specifies what the city may regulate through bylaws.

  • City of Campbell River Bylaws

    The office of the City Clerk maintains our municipal bylaws. Common bylaws include vehicle parking and stopping regulations, animal control, building and construction, licensing, noise, zoning and business regulation and management of public recreation areas.
