What Are Bylaws?

A bylaw is a rule or law established by an organization or local government to both regulate itself and the people it serves. Bylaws can be enacted for various reasons, to establish a set of commonly adhered to policies or rules, to detail a service to be provided, or to outline a process or regulation.

In general, bylaws are enacted and fall into one of the following categories:

  • Establishing a service
  • Authorizing the imposition of rates and levies to pay for services
  • Regulating persons or their property for the general public good
  • Regulating processes or procedural matters related to the governance or administration within the local government

The bylaws you find listed below are some of the most commonly requested bylaws, many of which are in consolidated form, and is not a full and complete listing of all Strathcona Regional District bylaws.
