Bylaw Adjudication

Acknowledgements

This Local Government Bylaw Dispute Adjudication System Toolkit is the result of collaboration between the participating communities of the North Shore Adjudication Model Pilot Project (District of West Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, and City of North Vancouver), the Local Government Advisory Services Branch of the Ministry of Community Services, the Local Government Management Association of British Columbia (LGMA), and the Court Services Branch of the Ministry of Attorney General.

Disclaimer

The purpose of this Toolkit is to assist local governments that are implementing the Local Government Bylaw Notice Enforcement Act, which allows for locally-based administration and adjudication of bylaw violation disputes. It is intended to be an “evergreen” document, and may be updated periodically, as appropriate.

This Toolkit includes information on how the adjudication model differs from other existing methods of municipal bylaw ticketing and administration. It also includes background information, policies and processes, forms and communication materials that were used as part of the North Shore Adjudication Model pilot project. These materials should be considered guiding documents only and should be modified, as appropriate, to fit the requirements of each local government.

This Toolkit is not a legal document and should not be considered as a substitute for the governing legislation and regulations. If in doubt on any information provided in this toolkit, users are encouraged to seek a legal opinion to ensure conformity with the legislation.

Victoria, September 2005
