The Constitution, the Municipal Structures Act and the Municipal Systems Act set the framework in terms of which a municipal council must pass by-laws. Within this framework, a council may make a by-law to further regulate its internal procedures of lawmaking.
The Constitution sets two basic requirements for municipal lawmaking.
- First, a by-law must have the support of the majority of all the councillors.
- Second, the community must have enjoyed the opportunity to have its say with regard to that by-law.
For this reason every by-law listed below, comes with the Provincial Gazette in which it was published.
