By-laws are municipal laws passed or amended by Council.

You can use the by-law status registry to search for by-laws. Some by-laws are scanned and can be seen online. Some are only available in hard copy at the Archives. If you cannot find the by-law you are looking for in the registry, please contact the Archives.

Some by-laws that were passed by the former municipalities before the 1998 amalgamation are still in force. You can read more about them below.

Links in the descriptions below take you to the Archives’ online database, where you can learn more about the municipal governments that passed these by-laws.
