The role of Bylaw Enforcement is to educate and inform residents of the Regional District’s regulatory bylaws. Bylaw enforcement exists to promote and facilitate bylaws enacted by the CVRD Board.
The goal of bylaw enforcement is not to penalize residents but, rather, to achieve voluntary compliance. CVRD Bylaw Officers will work with those willing to correct violations; however, compliance or enforcement based on education and warnings is not appropriate in all circumstances. More direct enforcement approaches, including immediate ticketing may occur.
Bylaw Enforcement Officers enforce the District’s bylaws on a complaint or proactive basis, as concerns emerge in the community. Bylaws Officers are tasked to investigate complaints received from the public about alleged violations and provide enforcement in a fair and consistent manner.
Make a Bylaw complaint. Queries and complaints can be made during normal business hours: 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
