In an effort to enhance Municipal Enforcement services, the Town has introduced a bylaw concern and complaint line. This new number is to be called for all bylaw concerns and complaints and is available 24 hours a day.
Dial 1-855-625-2248 when you have a bylaw issue or concern. Once your call is received by the dispatch service, all pertinent information is collected and a report is created. The dispatch officer will assess the call and forward the report to the next available Community Peace Officer on duty.
Please be advised that you can not make an anonymous complaint or third-party complaint.

We ask that all residents are responsible pet owners for safety reasons. This includes picking up waste, and maintaining control over your animal in public. If you see someone who is not picking up after their dog, please call 403-646-2029 or Email.
