Bylaw Samples

Samples of municipal, northern, community planning and offsite bylaws. These samples are for information purposes only and must be revised to suit local situations.


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 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.


2. Bylaws - Offsite

A growing number of Saskatchewan communities and rural municipalities are posting some or all of their bylaws on websites. Government Relations extends a thank you to them for authorizing a link to their websites. Please contact the webmaster to include your municipal site on this page.

The information on the following websites is not maintained or updated by Government Relations.

3. Community Planning Bylaws

The Planning and Development Act, 2007 came into effect on March 21, 2007. Below are several samples of documents, reports and bylaws for use by municipalities. More complex examples, such as Official Community Plans or Zoning Bylaws, can be suggested by the Planning Consultant for your area.
