What we do
Bylaw Services is responsible for the enforcement of the District of Saanich bylaws.
Bylaw Enforcement staff work collaboratively with all of the District of Saanich departments, various other government organizations, community groups and social agencies to ensure public safety, maintain community standards and preserve the quality of life in our community.
The primary goal of Bylaw Enforcement staff is to achieve voluntary compliance with the District of Saanich bylaws through education, information and non-penalty enforcement. In situations where voluntary compliance is not appropriate or is not achieved, Bylaw Enforcement staff may exercise enforcement options authorized by the Community Charter to gain compliance with the District of Saanich bylaws.
