Bylaw Services

Bylaws are municipal legislation enactments used to protect the welfare, safety and health of the residents of the Village of Pemberton and to promote community standards.

Our aim is not to penalize, but to increase public awareness and to educate so that the community understands the importance of Village bylaws and complies voluntarily.  Other than issues that are health and safety related, we rely on our community to report infractions so that we can educate, enforce, and ticket if necessary.

Bylaws are passed by Village Council, maintained by the Village of Pemberton Corporate and Legislative Services department, and enforced by the Bylaw Enforcement Officer. Village of Pemberton bylaws regulate matters including zoning, building, parking, animal control, noise levels, and licensing.

To appeal a bylaw offence ticket, complete a Bylaw Offence Appeal Form and submit it to the Village Office.

(Please note, to complete or email a PDF, you must first save the PDF to your computer.  If using a MAC, do not use MAC Preview to complete the form as it will corrupt the file).

To report a noise complaint after hours, please contact the RCMP.

For lost and found animals after hours, please contact PAWS at 604 966 1185 or WAG at 604 935 8364.

Please note: the Village will refer internal strata matters the strata council.

Make a Bylaw Complaint or Report an Infraction

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:  a description of the nature of the infraction, the date, time and specific location of the infraction, and contact information of the complainant.

You may submit complaints the following ways:

Please note that 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 confidential and will not be released, except as  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.
