Bylaw Samples

Samples of municipal, northern, community planning and offsite bylaws.

1. Municipal Sample Bylaws

The Municipalities Act (as well as The Cities Act) Section 6 broadly empowers Saskatchewan municipalities to pass bylaws to:

“… govern the municipality in whatever manner the council considers appropriate,within the jurisdiction provided to the council by law.”

Given that the scope of municipal jurisdiction is significant and that municipalities are newly empowered through the Acts, it is impossible to provide a definitive list of potential bylaws a municipality might have. Municipalities are required to have in place a bylaw on the issue of public notice, and there are some matters on which municipalities if they choose to act must do so by bylaw, but generally speaking the municipal council has discretionary use of their authority to pass bylaws to govern the municipality.
