As a division of the Protective Services Department, Bylaw Enforcement is primarily responsible for ensuring a safe and healthy environment for the citizens and visitors of Tumbler Ridge. They are based out of the Tumbler Ridge Fire Hall (325 Iles Way).
WHAT WE DO
Local Governments have authority, under the Community Charter, to make statutory law (known as “bylaws”) regulating a wide, yet limited, variety of matters. Here is a list of our most frequented bylaws;
For a complete listing of all Municipal Bylaws, visit Tumbler Ridge Town Hall.
Bylaw Enforcement responds to complaints. It is our mandate is to try and achieve voluntary compliance, however, where this does not happen, the appropriate enforcement action is taken. When there are complaints and disputes between neighbouring residents it is important to remember that resolution is best handled through open communication between the parties involved.
PETS AND ANIMALS
Every pet is a member of the family and is very special, so it is also very important that you’re aware of the bylaws and information surrounding the ownership of an animal. If your pet gets loose or lost, or if you have a complaint, please contact the Bylaw Enforcement Officer at (250) 242-3939.
For information on how to prevent dangerous wildlife encounters and what to do if you encounter wild animals, please visit the Ministry of Environment website.
