Enforcing by-laws

We expect our community to voluntarily comply with the rules and regulations of our by-laws. The By-Law Enforcement Office offers public education and mediation to help. If you choose not to comply with Township by-laws, you may face fines or legal charges filed with the Ontario Court of Justice.


The By-law Law Enforcement Office operates on a complaint basis. Once a complaint is received, it is investigated and appropriate actions are taken. Report a by-law complaint.
