The District of Saanich joined the majority of Canadian municipalities when it adopted the Pesticide Bylaw in 2010 to reduce the use of pesticides in residential areas of Saanich. Along with the bylaw, a program to raise awareness about the potential negative impacts of pesticide use in our communities and alternatives to pesticides was initiated.
The provincial government has expanded the number of pesticides that residents can use. This has prompted proposed revisions to the Pesticide Bylaw. If you would like to know more about what is being proposed, please read this factsheet [PDF - 2 MB].
