Looking for a Bylaw? If so, you can use the Bylaw Search to find the bylaw you are looking for. There are several search options including keyword search, bylaw number search, and an A-Z listing of the regulatory bylaws.



Bylaws are laws created by local governments in order to plan, govern, and keep our city safe. Bylaws only apply within the limits of the local government that enacted them. In our case, the bylaws of the City of North Vancouver are created to administer and regulate the City’s affairs and are only applicable within the boundaries of the City. Common topics for bylaws include Zoning, Utillities, Property Tax and Enforcement.



In general, there are two types of bylaws:
  • Administrative Bylaws

    Administrative bylaws support the administration of the City.

  • Regulatory Bylaws

    Regulatory bylaws identify the rules that regulate the City.



As bylaws are amended from time to time, a consolidated bylaw is a compilation of the main bylaw and all its inforce amendments. Essentially a consolidated bylaw is created for convenience to serve as a quick reference.
