Dog Licences & Renewals

If you own a dog in the City of North Vancouver you need to obtain a dog licence. This is a City bylaw and it provides protection for your pet. Lost dogs wearing a city dog licence are returned to owners far faster than dogs without one.

All dog licences expire December 31st of each year. A fine of $60.00 will be levied to dog owners found without a valid dog licence in the City of North Vancouver. Residents with an Assistance Dog will be issued a licence free of charge.

How to Get a Licence

Licence fees are $30 per year. Once payment is complete your new or renewed dog licence will be mailed out to you.

(Residents with an assistance dog will be issued a licence free of charge.)
