By-law and Policy Review

The County is reviewing all of its by-laws and policies. The goal is to ensure the by-laws and policies are relevant, efficient, and meet the needs of the municipality and community.

At the end of the review, County by-laws and policies will:

  • Comply with legislation and align with municipal priorities
  • Follow consistent wording and formatting. Policies will be structured so that they remain relevant for a longer period of time (e.g. no references to specific staff or positions that may change). 
  • Meet accessibility requirements. Additionally, all municipal policies will be available online and organized by policy streams, making them searchable and easier for the public and staff to locate.

Review Process

Staff have grouped the existing by-laws and policies in four main policy streams based on their intended purpose. 

Your Community’s Change and GrowthBy-laws and policies related to economic development, property standards, land use planning, and by-law enforcement. 

Your Government and People: By-laws and policies of Council, the CAO’s Office, the Clerk’s Office, human resources, information technology, finance, communications, and other administrative by-laws and policies. 

Your Infrastructure and Services: By-laws and policies related to operations, public works, water and wastewater, and traffic. 

Your Livable Community: By-laws and policies related to recreation, community facilities, community programs, accessibility, culture, and the environment.

During the by-law and policy review, the Clerk’s Office will consult with staff members to understand the purpose of the by-laws and policies that they work closely with, and how they could be improved. 

Additionally, external stakeholders may be consulted, if applicable. If you wish to comment or if you have questions, contact the Clerk’s Office at or call 613.476.2148 extension 1026.

Staff presented the by-law and policy review project to Council in January 2021. Read the staff report.
