By-Law Enforcement

By-laws are rules that help protect the safety and security of our citizens. And like any rule, to be effective it needs to be enforced. Compliance with city by-laws is encouraged and enforced through education, mediation, and—if necessary—through prosecution. 

For a list of common by-laws and who enforces them, please visit: By-Law Enforcement | City of Saint John, New Brunswick.
