This section contains by-laws concerning quality of life and public order in each of the city's boroughs. They contain information that summarizes the by-laws' main dispositions, accompanied by general advice.
Some municipal by-laws and their contents vary according to the borough.
The explanations concerning these by-laws in no way replace the actual text of the by-laws that have been officially adopted by the conseil de ville, the conseil d'agglomération or borough councils. All costs, rates and fine amounts are quoted as examples. For legal purposes, the official text of the by-law must be consulted.
Therefore, before undertaking any action or project, please make sure to contact the division or department responsible for a given by-law's application since special provisions may apply and some by-laws may have been recently amended.
By-laws official texts
You may obtain copies of the official texts, for a small fee, at service counters in City Hall. Please use the by-law number as a reference when you make enquiries about by-laws. For additional information, please contact the Direction du greffe.
