By-law Development

By-laws are not static documents. They are evolving. At times small changes need to occur and at others entire reviews need to be made.

We undertake reviews of all levels of Municipal and Planning District By-laws, as well as Land Use Plans for Reserve Communities.

This includes text and map amendment and whole-by-law repeal and replacement.
