The Bylaw Department

The Bylaw Department is mandated to increase public safety within the municipal scope, uphold minimum community standards known as bylaws, reduce social nuisances and liability risk for taxpayers, and ensure District agreements, permits, and process requirements are fulfilled.

To meet this mandate, the District's Bylaw Officer fields complaints from citizens, other District departments, and outside agencies. The Officer interprets bylaws, monitors and investigates matters, mediates, and enforces using education, warnings, and legal recourse as appropriate to the particular case. Voluntary compliance is always the goal and also the typical outcome.

Access commonly-used District bylaws

Common Bylaw Department topics are listed below.

The Bylaw Officer patrols the community on a varying schedule. Patrols enable the officer to observe violations in progress and most importantly, provide a preventative enforcement presence. However, enforcement of bylaws is primarily achieved through the public complaints process, detailed below.


How to Submit a Bylaw Complaint

If you see that a bylaw is not being followed, please let the District know. All complaints are handled with the utmost confidentiality in accordance with privacy laws.

Click below to download the Bylaw Complaint Form, print it, sign it by hand and then scan/photograph it and email it to, mail it, or submit it in person to Municipal Hall. 

For legal reasons [to stand up to a court challenge], most unsigned forms will not be acted on. Likewise, most other forms of complaint such as over the phone, in person, and email also cannot be acted on.

If you have questions or other concerns regarding Animal Control, Bylaws, Bylaw Enforcement, or Business Licencing, please contact the District using the contact information provided on the right side of this page.

The complaint form can also be used to submit general complaints or concerns. 


Be Winter Wise

The District of Lillooet's snow plows cannot deliver their best service when cars are parked on critical roadways. When there is snow in the forecast, do not park on the street. All vehicles should be parked in a driveway, garage, carport or other area of their private property.

Drivers and residents are asked to follow all posted parking restrictions on their street, and as indicated on street regulation signage at all locations within the District. This will prevent you from having to dig out your vehicle, and will also prevent you receiving a ticket or having your vehicle towed.

Be Bear Aware
