The Village has adopted a Bylaw Enforcement Policy which establishes that the Village relies primarily, but not exclusively, on citizen complaints as a means of enforcing regulatory bylaws. Bylaw complaints must be submitted in writing and include the following information: description of the nature of the infraction, the date, time and specific location of the infraction along with contact information of the complainant.
Bylaw complaints must be submitted in writing. You can submit complaints the following ways:
- Online Customer Service Request form
- Online Costumer Service Request Form for dog related issues
- Submitting a Customer Service Request Form in person at 7400 Prospect Street
- Submitting a Customer Service Request Form via email
- Submitting a Customer Service Request Form via fax: 604.894.6136
- Submitting a Customer Service Request Form via mail to Village of Pemberton, Box 100, Pemberton BC V0N2L0
Please note, we cannot act on a complaint without the provision of your name, address, phone number and details of your complaint.
Considerations Before Submitting a Bylaw Complaint
Bylaw complaint information is considered confidential and will not be released, except as may be required under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act or otherwise as required by law. The Village may require you to act as a witness, should a Bylaw complaint case proceed to Court if an infraction cannot otherwise be resolved.
Often complaints can be resolved amicably between neighbours. It is recommended that whenever possible, residents attempt to resolve their issues before contacting the Bylaw Officer for assistance.
