By-laws and Policies


Policies and by-laws are foundations of good governance. This page promotes awareness, transparency and accountability and serves as a convenient reference.

County by-laws and policies:

  • Comply with legislation and align with municipal priorities.
  • Follow consistent wording and formatting. Policies will be structured so that they remain relevant for a longer period of time (e.g. no references to specific staff or positions that may change).
  • Meet accessibility requirements. Additionally, all municipal policies will be available online and organized by policy streams, making them searchable and easier for the public and staff to locate.
The by-laws and policies are grouped based on their intended purposed. View the policies in each group below. By-laws in each group can be found here.

By-law and Policy Review Project

Staff presented the by-law and policy review project to Council in January 2021. Read the staff report. The project is informed by the findings of a high-level review undertaken by third-party consultants Diverse Systems Group in 2020. Read the final report and recommendations.

 The goal was to ensure the by-laws and policies are relevant, efficient, and meet the needs of the municipality and community. 

During the by-law and policy review, the Clerk’s Office and the respective service staff brought forward reports within each stream for Council’s consideration. The reports are linked below.

Stream 1 – Your Community’s Change and GrowthBy-laws and policies related to economic development, property standards, land use planning, and by-law enforcement. 

Stream 2 – Your Government and People: By-laws and policies of Council, the CAO’s Office, the Clerk’s Office, human resources, information technology, finance, communications, and other administrative by-laws and policies.

Stream 4 – Your Livable Community: By-laws and policies related to recreation, community facilities, community programs, accessibility, culture, and the environment.
