Public Notice Bylaw
On November 25, 2021, Bill 26, being the provincial Municipal Affairs Statutes Amendment Act (No. 2), 2021, received Royal Assent and came into effect.
Amongst other things, this Bill amended the Local Government Act and the Community Charter to allow local governments the ability, by bylaw, to provide for alternative means of publishing a notice instead of using a local newspaper.
A bylaw adopted under Section 94.2 of the Community Charter must specify at least two (2) means of publication by which a notice is to be published, and this may include internet or other electronic means.
At its meeting of August 18, 2022, the Planning and Development (P&D) Committee of the Regional District Board resolved that the Public Notice Bylaw No. 2977, 2022, be initiated.
Bylaw Status - Adopted September 22, 2022
